The Bulgarian School of Politics (BSoP) organized and held a second three-day seminar on “Renewal of the building stock in the context of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP)”. This time, the target group was representatives of the civil sector. The forum was held between 6th and 8th of October in Borovets in partnership with Foundation “Center for Energy Efficiency EnEffect”.
Nineteen representatives of various civil organizations took part in the training. Most of them have graduated from BSoP.
Renovation of residential buildings is one of the most important topics for European policies, not only in the field of energy and climate, but also as a tool to achieve energy independence and internal stability. The seminar identified opportunities for policy development in this area and at the same time provided answers to questions related to the regulatory framework. The training challenged the participants to develop their own arguments and strategies for the implementation of specific building renovation programs. A number of key topics were addressed, such as the fight against energy poverty, condominium management, building certificates, guaranteed result contracts, technical requirements for input materials and project implementation, which are key both for communication in an institutional environment and for direct conversations with the citizens.
