Upgrading the existing EU building stock is increasingly pressing. While buildings are responsible for 40% of EU energy consumption, their poor seismic performance during earthquakes has led to significant human and economic losses.
The side event will present the pilot project "Integrated techniques for the seismic strengthening and energy efficiency of existing buildings", which aims to support initiatives under the European Green Deal (e.g. Renovation Wave) and make EU regions safe and resilient.
