With about 120 participants in Malta, and even more following the event via live webstreaming, the CA EPBD workshop with panel discussion “Smart Buildings for a greener Europe: Emerging Policy and Practice”, organised on 14 February 2017, is considered to be a great success!
The event panel included experts from industry, academia and the European Commission to discuss “What are smart buildings?” and “How can they help improve the energy efficiency of Europe’s building stock?”, as well as to answer a variety of questions raised by participants on site or via twitter/email.
