The QualitEE Project’s final conference was held in three one hour sessions 17-19 June 2020 online.
Conference title: Developing the market for high quality Energy Efficiency Services, a flexible delivery model ideal for rapid transition to net zero.
Overview: The transition to net zero by 2050 will require dramatic changes in our buildings and local energy infrastructure. This will bring with it a continuous evolution of the policy and technology landscape, to which building owners will need to react. Effective Energy Efficiency Services can support the transition by building partnerships with ESCOs that can offer expertise at the forefront of these changes, experience from a wide range of projects, and financing solutions. This series of online events explores the potential and shares outcomes from the QualitEE project, which has been researching and developing quality assurance schemes for Energy Efficiency Services across Europe.
