Webinar hosted by Housing Europe and the Covenant of Mayors Office. November 5th, 2014, 11:30- 13:00

Across Europe a green building revolution is under way. Germany and Austria, home of the passive house standards, may be leading the process but there is a reassuring pan-European feel to Powerhouse Europe challenge – a project that aims at boosting the number of "nearly zero energy" homes across the continent by sharing ideas and expertise between social housing professionals.

The project has provided several interesting lessons such as how to build and renovate homes at nearly zero energy standards.

This webinar will offer participants the opportunity to discuss the key findings of the project.
