Lack of technical support and inadequate administrative capacity are among the key barriers preventing the scale-up of energy efficiency projects in the EU Member States.

Technical assistance plays a central role in removing the administrative, financial and other hurdles for ministries, cities, local authorities, businesses and households to renovate buildings. This webinar brought together representatives of the European Commission, national governments and leading businesses to discuss how to strengthen technical assistance and deliver a wave of renovations across Europe.
