Together with the European Fire Safety Alliance (EuroFSA) and its members, FEEDS co-organised the third webinar (out of four) on December 1st: “Energy Transition and fire safety” with MEP Maria da Graça Carvalho.
During this webinar participants were updated in three sessions and a political discussion on the developments in: “Electrical safety: a prerequisite in the context of the energy transition”, “Fire safety competency to support the renovation wave” and “New fire challenges of green energy in buildings”.
The day started with Session I organised by FEEDS and its members. the full video is available here (1h54min):
Session II was led by the Modern Building Alliance and enlightened on the relevance to apply fire safety engineering and performance-based design methodologies to address fire safety in the context of the Renovation Wave.
Session III welcomed high-level speakers from the European Parliament and European Commission DG GROW and DG ENER to exchange about current legislative opportunities to address fire safety.
To give a clear view on how to integrate fire safety considerations in the recast of the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), a policy briefing was edited to the attention of Members of the European Parliament.
