Opening doors to efficient buildings

Brussels

11 Jul 2022

The HEART Consortium invites you you to its final conference scheduled on 11 July 2022 at 11:00-17:00 CET at Residence Palace in Brussels.

Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 program, the HEART project combines different components and technologies to transform existing buildings into smart ones. The retrofit toolkit developed by the HEART project can reduce energy consumption, with overall savings between 60% and 90%, and significantly improve comfort for the inhabitants who can manage their consumption directly.

Join the final conference to get an overview of the innovations in the HEART project and how to scale up energy-efficiency renovation in Europe.
