Launch of IWG5-CSA project
The IWG5-CSA project officially started in September for a period of 36 months, and is implemented by EUREC (Coordinator), ECTP, EURAC and WIP.
It will support the SET Plan’s Implementation Working Group on Energy Efficiency in Buildings (IWG5). The IWG5 sets out actions required to achieve the challenging targets for energy efficiency in buildings.
Key tasks of the IWG-CSA project include providing regular policy updates, delivering scientific support on new technologies, organising study tours to innovative buildings and incentivising task forces to work on technical and societal issues to update IWG5’s Implementation Plan. The first upcoming task forces will focus on new materials in buildings and prefabricated active modules for facades and roofs or key enabling technologies for active building skins.
In addition, the project will play close attention to the revision of National Energy and Climate Plans in 2023 and, depending on the final legislated EPBD, National Building Renovation Plans in 2024.
IWG5-CSA has received funding from the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101075700.
Ms. Cornelia Partsch, ECTP Policy & Project Officer, is in charge this project for ECTP.
