"POWER HOUSE Divided/Cooperative ownership TaskForce workshop: How to finance energy efficiency? Focus on divided and cooperative ownership multifamily buildings" - 11-12 June 2013, Milan, Italy

The construction sector in Italy is in a deep crisis and is struggling to find ways to restart. Many observers think that the green economy and especially energy retrofit represent concrete opportunities to boost the sector. Furthermore, the European Union is orienting Member States towards a significant cut of greenhouse gas emissions generated by buildings.

To achieve those objectives, two main issues must be solved at least: how to gather the initial capital for the investments and how to support the adoption of innovative technologies. This is more complicated in multifamily buildings where the property can be divided between several subjects. 

The workshop was addressed to representative of the Cooperative and Social Housing sector, and to all those who have a responsibility in the drafting and management of programmes to incentivise and finance energy efficiency.
