The Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, on the 6 December 2018, commissioned the European Urban Knowledge Network - EUKN EGTC to organise a one-day conference on the topic of Energy transition in the built environment. The event took place in COMM museum in The Hague bringing together mostly local, but also an international audience. Several foreign experts (Austria, Belgium, French, Germany, Denmark and Spain) presented good practices of the energy transition processes from their countries.
Within the working framework, the aim of the conference was to learn from experiences about transformations of the built environment in the process of making it more sustainable. The panel discussion was mainly focused on the energy transition(s) in other European countries so that the Dutch government can create the societal support and design the right instruments for the transformation in the near future.
Besides the keynotes and rich panel discussion, three interactive workshops focused on these topics:
Societal support: How to activate homeowners and housing cooperation?;
The role of experiments, including the private sector;
Governmental instruments: financial, legal, deals.
