The concept of Smart and Energy Efficient Buildings aims to replace the standard building systems. The concept has gained the support of various involved interested parties coming from the public and private sector.

Specifically and according to the report published by IDATE DigiWorld: “Smart home and smart building market” [April 2017], smart buildings are an expected growing market with a moderate growth of 15% between 2015 and 2025. Translating the percentage into volume, the installed base of Smart Home and Smart Building devices will grow from 233 to over 980 million units by 2025.

In this frame, GIZ and INZEB are organising an online event entitled “Smart & Energy Efficient Buildings” scheduled for Thursday 29 October 2020 at 14.00 with a duration of 120’. The perspectives and the frame for smart and energy-efficient buildings in Europe, as well as the strategies, policies and technology developments in Greece are the main topics to be presented and discussed during the event.

The event is part of the REDay2020: #Renovate2Recover which is organised by Renovate Europe Campaign.

The webinar will be held in the Greek language!
