"POWER HOUSE Divided/Cooperative ownership TaskForce Workshop & Study visit" - 12-13 June 2014, Tallinn, Estonia

In Divided and Cooperative property buildings, the role of tenants or owners is crucial for the decision making process, especially for what concerns the retrofitting of existing buildings. Furthermore, Member States have different legal frameworks in place, in some cases with special rules for energy efficient renovation.

The aim of the Workshop organized by EKÜL - the Estonian Union of Co-operative Housing Associations, was to take stock of the situation in different countries and to address good organizational practices to facilitate the decision-making process for the renovation of divided and cooperative ownership buildings.
