In association with the Hungarian National Association of Condominiums and Condominium Managers (TTOE), UIPI hosted the first event of the UIPI renovation Tour in Budapest on 17 September 2021. It aimed to bring the European Commission’s (EC) climate targets closer to EU citizens, notably Hungarian property owners and condominium managers, by leading locally relevant policy debates and proposing practical solutions building on existing European and local initiatives.
This event marked the official kick-off of our Renovation Tour and gathered around 160 very enthusiastic participants glad to meet and debate again in person (and more than 40 people online) this important topic. The morning session dedicated to take stock of the EU, national and local level policy developments, measures and tools to support energy-efficiency renovation was concluded by a round-table debate that steered great discussions between policy-makers, stakeholders from implicated sectors and the public.
The afternoon one focused on practical solutions show-casing tools, assistance and support methods for renovation, as well as cutting edge solutions to facilitate it. The strong interest in the topic and for the interventions, the high level of interaction and questions from the audience strongly reinforces our belief that such events are extremely useful for awareness raising and to bring policy closer to citizens; two things without which the Renovation Wave will hardly be successful.
