Smart Finance for Smart Buildings – A comparison of Bulgaria and Poland

This presentation brings out the latest developments in financing smart buildings in two of the newer EU Member States – Poland and Bulgaria.  Both have legacy issues in terms of building stocks that were constructed with little thought for energy efficiency, or amenity for occupants. Current approaches to improving energy performance are compared and contrasted. Available funding is assessed against the scale of the challenge in modernising and improving the existing building stocks in the two countries to order to provide comfortable, affordable and efficient homes and workplaces for citizens while at the same time contributing to a sustainable energy system.  An analysis of the suitability of some of the most advanced financing mechanisms in place in other European countries will also be presented.
