The European Urban Knowledge Network (EUKN EGTC) is organising a conference on the subject of Energy Transition, to be held on 6 December 2018 in The Hague. Places are limited, register now!

Energy transition in Europe

The Dutch government’s Climate Agreement and existing EU targets aim to reduce CO2 emissions substantially by 2030 and beyond. To meet these targets, the built environment – next to other sectors – needs to be made more sustainable. While the Dutch case might be unique regarding the dependence on natural gas, European countries face similar challenges regarding the transformation of buildings into sustainable neighbourhoods.

The Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations has commissioned the European Urban Knowledge Network - EUKN to organise a conference that sheds light on this large-scale challenge from a European point of view. The event will bring together Dutch and European experts to share their experiences in transforming the existing building stock into green, energy-efficient buildings. 

The conference will focus on successful policy instruments and will explore how authorities and other key actors can create societal support for the massive transformation processes. The morning sessions will present the state of play and challenges in the Netherlands and Europe and shed light on policy approaches in different countries. During afternoon breakout sessions, there will be room for more detailed discussion of concrete examples.

The meeting addresses Dutch stakeholders in particular while the working language is English. The participation is free of charge. Please contact the EUKN Secretariat for further details about the conference via policylab@eukn.eu and on the EUKN website.

Registration is open until 30 November 2018. Register now to secure one of the limited places!
