UNECE First Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Housing

On 21 and 22 April 2009 the UNECE will held its first workshop on energy efficiency in housing. Representatives from the BEEN project have been invited to present the projects' key results during this event.
The workshop will focus on indentifying challenges and opportunities, as well as to providing UNECE member states with policy guidance and suggestions on how to increase energy efficiency in housing.  The Workshop will review the economic, social and environmental impacts of energy efficiency in housing, will consider current policies, solutions and barriers to effective policies, and will discuss priorities that need to be addressed by international organizations and national governments. The audience of the Workshop will include national, regional and local government representatives, business practitioners, academic experts and other professionals.
