Will the “Clean Energy for All package” help in the fight against smog in Poland? – only in Polish

To be held 20 March in Warsaw. Zielna Conference Center, Zielna 37, Warsaw - room Berlin+Warszawa (near metro station Świętokrzyska - entrance from Bagno Street)

In this workshop, we aim to explore the role of the European “Clean Energy for All” package on the renovation market, and in particular whether it does enough to address the country’s smog problem.

This event gathers leading experts and interested stakeholders in an open discussion about the impact that these proposals could have on Poland’s building stock. The debate will cover both the process of negotiating the package at the EU level as well as the effect it may have at Member State level on certain topics such as renovation strategies, combatting fuel poverty and more. Equally, we want to hear the views of different stakeholders, and whether the package is ambitious enough to address the issues affecting the Polish building stock.

This event is by invitation only, to allow for an interactive discussion and to give participants the opportunity to debate the merits of the package and its implications for Poland in an expert forum.

Registration is compulsory by March 13 at this link. Early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
