Save the Date: Turnkey Retrofit Final conference, 22 February 2022

Date: 22 February 2022, 2-5pm CET

Location: online 


Reducing the energy and carbon need of the building stock is a key priority for the European Union, as buildings are responsible for around 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the region. The renovation rate continues to linger around 1% and private investments remain limited. The European Commission’s Renovation Wave Strategy proposes several solutions to this, with the new objectives of renovating 35 million building units by 2030 and of doubling the renovation rate within the next 10 years. There is a need for “standardised one-stop shops that can be deployed quickly. The development of more standardised one-stop shop models, which can be replicated and quickly deployed across Europe, is an important step towards reaching the 2050 decarbonisation goal.

The conference aims to contribute to the dialogue ahead of the EPBD revision by demonstrating the potential of one-stop shops, and by highlighting best practices for delivering a decarbonised and healthy building stock to the EU and beyond.

Building on the experience of the 3-year long project Turnkey Retrofit, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, the first part will present the learnings of the project and the platform that has been developed in France, Spain and Ireland, Solutions4Renovation. It will give particular attention to the process of replicating/adapting the service in Spain and Ireland.

The second part will give the floor to other one-stop shops initiatives in the EU and will explore the key success factors and what is needed to step up and replicate such services.

This conference is open to anyone interested in the future of building renovations in Europe. Attendance to the conference is free, but prior registration is required.
