Green Deal

Energy – Building – Environment

This year you have the opportunity to present your contribution in one of the three parallel, topic-specific lecture blocks (Energy, Buildings and Environment) and to discuss it with international experts during the conference.

The energy supply of the future should be reliable, user-friendly, climate-friendly and affordable. The necessary energy transition requires renewable, sustainable and innovative ideas and solutions including the integration of fluctuating renewable energies.

The developments within the building technology sector are significantly influenced by EU’s green deal action plan. Furthermore digitalization will allow the use of new, collaborative methods of working for life cycle orientated planning, construction and operation of buildings.

The preservation of an environment worth living in requires new technological solutions and creative approaches. Changes in the legal framework or methods for strengthening a circular economy, as well as innovative environmental technologies and environmental assessment methods will be addressed at the congress.
