Ireland – Workshop 6- Implementing Ireland’s National Renovation Strategy V.2
About the Process
Article 4 of the Energy Efficiency Directive requires Member States to define long-term strategies for stimulating energy efficiency of the buildings sector. The Department of Energy, Communications and Natural Resources is therefore tasked with publishing a National Renovation Strategy V.2 by 30th April 2017, covering buildings in the commercial, residential and public building sectors.
The details of this strategy are critical to deliver a “fully decarbonised built environment that delivers a better quality of life for all”. How will we finance the long term investment strategy required for our building stock over the next 35 years? How will we reach our climate targets? All these questions will be answered by Ireland’s National Renovation Strategy V.2.
About the Workshop
Since March 2015, the IGBC has been working in close cooperation with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) to co-design an ambitious National Renovation Strategy (NRS) V.2 for Ireland – Build Upon project. Over 170 key stakeholders have been involved in this dialogue to-date, bringing diverse and valuable perspectives to the table
As the IGBC is due to submit a final set of recommendations to the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) in February 2017, this workshop represents a last opportunity to input into this document. In particular, the objective of the event is to reach an agreement on a final set of recommendations, as well as to see how we could work together to make the strategy a reality.
Organisations interested in attending this workshop are strongly encouraged to read the updated set of recommendations published in December 2016, as well as this short infographic. Comments and suggestions these documents can be sent to Marion[a]igbc.ie.
