We are pleased to invite you to a breakfast debate hosted by Bendt Bendtsen, MEP of the EPP Group. This is the first event in a sequel on consumer engagement and on the important role of consumers in the European energy transition. It is jointly organised by EHPA and eu.bac.
Purchasing decisions can be influenced so that consumers opt for more energy efficient products. Examples from the academic perspective, industry and small-medium enterprises will be discussed so as to show what are the challenges and how they can be overcome so that we successfully bring consumers on board for increasing energy efficiency in buildings.
