International Passiv House Conference 2014

Passive House is more…
…than energy efficiency.
Passive House is the future. This intelligent concept marks the cost optimum over the life-cycle of a building. In conjunction with the use of renewable energies, it stands as an answer to the nearly zero-energy building goals being established by governments the world over – indeed, according to the European building directive, it is to this standard that all new builds must be constructed by 2021.
It is now time to prepare for these developments. The themes presented at the International Passive House Conference will help participants do just that.

Managing the European Energy Transition - Euroheat a Power Annual Conference

In 2014, the energy policy world will start to move forward, with a push towards new climate and energy targets prompting a renewed discussion on the value of energy in Europe.
The District Heating and Cooling, along with the Combined Heat and Power sector needs to be ready to highlight and reassert its importance and demonstrate its huge societal and economic benefits in order to be included in the European strategies.

This annual conference has the potential to play a primary role in reaffirming and securing the sector’s importance and by showing policymakers that District Energy can make a valuable contribution to Europe’s energy targets. This one-day event will focus on communicating this message to policymakers, whilst equipping participants with the practical tools and knowledge base on how to meet the requirements set by the different strategies. It will also allow emphasising that constructive cooperation between the public and private sector can be done for the benefit of all, and in which measure. Finally, the importance and possibilities of European funding will be presented, from a political and banker point of view.
