In late 2020, the European Commission unveiled its plans for a ‘renovation wave’ across Europe, aiming for a doubling of the rate of renovations in the next decade. Countries across North-West Europe are now looking for approaches to realize these ambitions.  

The SBE Regional Conference Innovations for the Urban Energy Transition brings professionals and researchers together to discuss the implementation of leading-edge solutions to some of our greatest societal challenges around the energy transition in the building sector. 

The conference is focused on how to achieve a rapid pace of building renovations across Europe.  

Conference themes include:​

  • Renovation concepts for housing
  • Renovation concepts for non-residential buildings
  • Innovative technologies
  • Low temperature heating solutions for buildings
  • District energy systems
  • Energy harvesting and storage on a building scale
  • Smart, energy-flexible buildings, smart monitoring, management & control
  • Energy performance of buildings
  • Behaviour of building owners and users
  • Value chain innovation
  • Policies and regulations
  • The energy transition in progress
  • Sustainability assessment of mitigation measures
  • Assessment of existing buildings
