The Symposium is a one day event, co-located with the AECB's National Conference at Eco Connect London. This high brow symposium is focussed on productivity, resilience and sustainability in the domestic refurbishment sector. It is about re-thinking assumptions and systems in a time of change.
Energy poverty, described as the inability to afford an adequate heating regime in the household, is increasingly acknowledged as a pressing issue across Europe. The European Commission states that over 54 million people, or 11% of the European population, currently suffer from the consequences of energy poverty, the causes of which are multiple. Despite falling wholesale prices for gas and electricity, consumer costs have gradually increased. When combined with poor energy efficiency in many buildings and a squeeze in living standards, Europe’s citizenry has been left in the dark.
The event is an initiative of Housing Europe as part of the PROF TRAC project which targets technical experts, architects and managers involved in nZEB design and construction.
