As the iNSPiRe project reaches the end of its EC funding phase, partners are hosting a final workshop in Brussels to provide valuable insight into the innovative, energy-efficient retrofit solutions it has developed, tested and demonstrated.

iNSPiRe is a four-year project, funded through the EC’s FP7 funding programme, that has been working towards the development of systemic renovation packages designed to reduce the energy consumption of existing buildings to lower than 50kWh/m2/year.

The workshop will also involve the RETROKIT project, a complementary EC-funded study that has been developing and demonstrating multifunctional, modular, low-cost prefabricated modules that are easy to install and so increase the rate of retrofitting in Europe.

Together, the projects offer a level of expertise and experience in energy-efficient retrofitting that will be essential for all those involved in the renovation market, including building owners, policy makers, local authorities, industry and energy companies.

With a series of presentations, round table debate, open discussion and audience participation, delegates will learn what is at the cutting edge of green retrofitting technology and how this technology can be implemented across the market.

This is an invitation-only event and we are inviting an audience of 40-50 carefully-selected, senior decision makers reflecting all stakeholder groups involved in the renovation market. These will be real experts in the renovation value chain and they will have the opportunity to grill the projects involved in active debate to gain a real understanding of the latest technology available and its feasibility in the renovation market.

A short summary of the workshop will be produced soon after the event to ensure all views are recorded and to help amplify core messages to a much wider targeted audience. Valuable networking opportunities will be available.
