Join EU Horizon porjects EXCESS and syn.ikia to explore and define the concept of Positive Energy Buildings (PEB) and neighbourhood districts (PED) to establish, assess, and document the impact of positive energy buildings on a more cost-effective, just, socially balanced and fair energy transition in different contexts, climates, cultures, and markets.

This 90-minute virtual workshop will dive into the barriers and opportunities that the existing EU, national and local regulatory frameworks provide for the development of SPENs on the ground and will highlight successful examples of SPEN implementation in different EU countries. The workshop will explore synergies between several SPEN projects and identify best practices of local implementation of SPENs across Europe. The workshop is aiming to help build the European SPEN Community, launched by the Syn.ikia project, and to continue the discussion and build bridges between the various sectors that SPENs cover.

Agenda (90 mins):

  • Discussions will address:
  • policy landscape impacting the implementation of SPENs at EU and national/ local level;
  • what is needed for SPEN vs. the existing policy landscape;
  • Lessons learned from each project, potential of district approaches and citizen involvement.
