The city of tomorrow and the fair energy transition: the role of affordable and social housing providers

The Second POWER HOUSE nZEC Symposium held in Versailles represented an excellent opportunity to assess the issues that cities of tomorrow will be facing in the near future and to discuss with local authorities’ representatives and housing experts about how Public, Cooperative and Social Housing providers should contribute to address these challenges and secure a ‘fair energy transition’.

The report resulting from this exercise includes a brief description of the presentations by and roundtable discussions amongst Housing Europe members, POWER HOUSE TaskForces Leaders, invited speakers and Solar Decathlon Europe representatives.

The report concludes with some recommendations for the housing sector and urban stakeholders to help address the challenges of affordable housing and fair energy transition that the European cities of tomorrow will be facing.
