Congress of Energy-Efficient Construction and Building Certification at RENEXPO, Warsaw

City Brand Energia Odnawialna and REECO Poland Sp. z o.o. is pleased to invite visitors to the ”Congress of energy-efficient construction and buildings certification”.

The second edition of the event will be held in Warsaw on October 21, 2016 during the 6th International Trade Fair for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency ‘RENEXPO Poland 2016’.
For several years Poland has witnessed a dynamic development of energy-efficient and passive construction. It  has allowed a significant reduction of the cost of building operation, such as electricity, heat or gas consumption. In case of passive construction the cost may be reduced as much as 90% when compared to the standard approach. Such a significant reduction of cost is possible thanks to solutions including such as building shape, high thermal insulation and airtightness and the use of renewable energy sources, as well as internal sources of heat for heating purposes. It should also be mentioned that one of the most important elements of passive building is to provide a constant supply of fresh air through the mechanical ventilation with a high level of efficiency.
During the event we will discuss the issue of multi-criteria certification. Investors, developers or tenants increasingly opt for constructions certified with LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, HQE. Currently, there are 437 certified objects in Poland, 80% of which are BREEAM certified. Such documents are issued for buildings which meet specific requirements for a given program. These are, i.a.: energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, water and waste management, quality of materials, building construction, or sustainable location.
Energy-efficient construction and improvement in energy efficiency are some of the important issues imposed by the Polish and European Energy Policy. Solutions used in energy-efficient and passive buildings significantly reduce CO2 emission, limit the use of heat and electricity, and also contribute to sustainable development and environmental protection. Promoting the idea of green building, latest technologies, as well as multi-criteria certification, greatly stimulates the innovation and development of Polish economy.
The program includes, i.a.:
Ø  Legal regulations for the energy-efficient and passive construction market
Ø  Directives of the European Parliament and the Council on the energy performance of buildings,
Ø  The future of sustainable construction in Poland,
Ø  Improving energy efficiency in existing buildings,
Ø  LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, HQE certification – certification process, examples,
Ø  Poland as the leader of multi-criteria certification in Central and Eastern Europe,
Ø  Polish certificates of green building,
Ø  Subsidies for energy-efficient construction and for improving energy efficiency of the buildings,
Ø  Materials and technologies in energy-efficient construction,
Ø  IT solutions for effective media management,
Ø  Thermovision and testing buildings airtightness.
This even will appeal to those interested in the subject of sustainable construction and multi-criteria certification, in particular: developers, investors, real estate agencies, construction companies, architects, housing associations, property managers, manufacturing companies, local governments, technology companies, installers, banks and financial institutions , law firms, etc. For more information:
