Web-stream, today from 14h00 CET - Workshop "Architecture: Towards a Step Change in Building Performance"

23.05.2017

In the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) and the Federal Chamber of German Architects (BAK) are organising a Workshop (Energy Day) on Thursday 22 June in Brussels on the theme “Architecture: Towards a Step Change in Building Performance".

In the context of the on-going revision of the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD), the objective is to raise awareness at EU level of the architectural determinants of building performance. In particular, these events will aim to debate and shed light on:

  • the role of architecture in creating a step-change in the uptake of energy efficiency measures;
  • the imperative to consider building performance in a broader and more holistic perspective;
  • the four pillars of building performance: resource efficiency; indoor environmental quality; occupant satisfaction; value
  • the feasibility of requiring systematic feedback on the achieved performance of buildings in operation / the validation of buildings performance in use;
  • implications for EU energy legislation and financial incentives.


The workshop will be web-streamed from the ACE website - Go to this page: www.ace-cae.eu/893/
