C4E Forum: Scaling up renovations of multi-apartment buildings within the context of energy crisis

Alleviating energy poverty in CEE requires renovating multi-family apartment buildings (MFABs) on a large scale. But how can we effectively renovate them? An enabling policy environment, Resource Centres/One-Stop-Shops, and community engagement are essential.

Join us for this year’s C4E edition, on May 25, 2023 at 11:00, where we will share the valuable lessons learned from the ComAct project. Our speakers will delve into the challenges and opportunities of renovating MFABs, provide insights into effective community engagement, and discuss the importance of an enabling policy environment.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from our experts and partners and contribute to the fight against energy poverty in CEE.
