10,00 – 16,00  International conference "Cities - Leaders in Energy Transition"

Over 70% of Europeans today live in cities, and by 2050 this percentage is expected to grow up to 80%. Nevertheless, cities or representatives of urban authorities still do not have their place "at the table" where politics and decisions are made, the effect of which is most manifested in urban areas. Although the first positive moves at the European level in the direction of involving cities in the process of creating European policies are recognized in the Urban Agenda initiative, there is still no systematic and formal way of involving cities in policy-making bodies that regulate, inter alia, different aspects of city functioning and people who live in them. The Conference "Cities - Leaders in Energy Transition" shall use its the panels pertaining to energy policy, energy recovery and clean energy as an incentive for entrepreneurship, to highlight the importance and significance of energy efficiency and environmental protection in urban environments because these are the topics to be talked about and to be addressed in order to plan better and implement even bigger and more successful projects, as a result.

13,00 – 16,00  Conference "Through BIM to Energy Efficiency“

The Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Zagreb will hold a conference "Through BIM to Energy Efficiency", which will discuss the possibilities of increasing energy efficiency in buildings in a way that will stimulate and increase the use of BIM during the life cycle of the building. The use of BIM will enable the building's energy properties to be increased by using different materials in the process of the main project and in the process of energy (renewal) projects. BIM, or Building Information Modeling, is a process that encompasses the entire lifecycle of a building, from the design phase, through construction, management, maintenance and demolition. In each of the above mentioned phases, it is very important to consider all aspects of energy efficiency so that the entire life of the building will reduce its environmental impact. It has been shown that communication among all building participants is one of the biggest challenges when looking at nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB) and this workshop will try to present the BIM paradigm as a possible way to address some of the challenges of designing, building and using NZEB. The Conference will also present European projects Net-UBIEP, BIMcert, BHENEFIT, Fit-to-nZEB, as well as practical aspects of using BIM in the field of energy efficiency.
