Energy Cork is delighted to announce that our next Breakfast Briefing will take place on Thursday 26th October 2017 from 0700 – 0830, kindly hosted by Arup at One Albert Quay, Cork.
This month’s breakfast briefing will hear from two speakers on the topic of energy efficiency in buildings and the upcoming changes in legislation that will impact the building sector. We welcome
- Adrian Joyce, the Secretary General of the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EuroACE) and Campaign Director of Renovate Europe and
- Mona Holtkoetter, a Building Services Engineer from Arup and one of Irelands first WELL Accredited Professionals.
Adrian Joyce will present the organisation EuroACE and their campaign, Renovate Europe. Renovate Europe have the ambition to reduce the energy demand of the building stock in the EU by 80% by 2050. Adrian will discuss the EU’s legislative process and how it affects national policy and targets for building regulations and energy efficiency. There will be a focus on the current revisions of Energy Efficiency Directive and the Energy Performance Buildings Directive and the effects these will have in Ireland.
Mona Holtkötter will present her assessment of the impacts of the new Part L for buildings other than dwellings in Ireland, due to come into force in January 2018. Apart from increasing efficiency of energy consuming systems and improving the insulation, air tightness and glazing properties for buildings, there will be a major focus on delivering locally generated renewable energy technologies. Mona will give an overview of the changes and present on different solutions for a city centre office building to meet the new Part L requirements.
The event is open to both members and non-members of Energy Cork and is a free event. However, places are limited and registration is essential – so in order to ensure that you are not disappointed, please confirm your attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday 24th October.
