|BPIE is kindly inviting you to fill out a survey and save the date for an online workshop on the effectiveness and implementation challenges of mandatory minimum requirements.
BPIE, CLIMACT, CREARA and Ecologic are carrying out a one-year study “Lessons learned to inform integrated approaches for the renovation and modernisation of the built environment” commissioned by the European Commission Directorate-General for Energy. The study aims to inform policy making at the European level in light of progressive building-related policies implemented in EU Member States and beyond. Policy instruments in 23 countries and regions are being analysed to learn from experiences of existing policies and understand barriers and success conditions for their implementation. One part of the study explores the relevance, feasibility and possible scope of additional measures at EU-level in favour of mandatory minimum requirements (MMR) for existing buildings. The study intends to present a range of options and assess their potential impacts and feasibility.
In a stakeholder engagement process, we want to gather your expertise and perspectives: what are the tangible benefits of mandatory minimum requirements? What are the main risks? Which are the important design features? And what is required from an enabling policy framework? We invite you to take part in the survey until May 10, 2020. It should not take you more than 15-20 minutes to complete it. For any questions or comments, please contact us.
The survey will be followed by an online workshop on May 14 from 9:00 to 13:00, where the results will be discussed and to which you can register here. The workshop aims to understand stakeholders’ views and concerns about introducing minimum performance requirements, discuss different options and possibly define a common denominator for implementing minimum requirements, or criteria that an enabling framework would need to fulfil. Speakers from the Energy Saving Trust and the Flemish Energy Agency will share experiences from UK and Belgium during this interactive workshop.
We are looking forward to your participation in the survey and the online workshop.
