The session will reflect how carbon-neutral building could be achieved. It focuses both on carbon calculating and energy transition. In 2025 carbon footprinting in new buildings becomes a mandatory requirement for a building permit. What does this mean for the building industry and the Environment? Can energy communities take us to the next level in smart energy solutions? Come and hear from top experts and learn from case examples from Finland and abroad.
This track is especially targeted to experts and researchers both from private and public sectors.
