Energy transition, the new reality

Second in the “Legal Workshops” series

The energy transition, prompted by the Paris climate objectives and consumer awareness, among other things, is creating a new reality that governments, the business community and society have to deal with. An important question is in which cases the obligation to connect to the gas transport network lapses.

The entire sustainability sector is subject to change: new/existing parties and technologies are introduced and changed, new rules apply. Clients are preparing for a transition from ownership to use and are faced with different financing models and multi-year assignments.

Partly from a responsible role in the realization of the energy agreement, you as a social real estate organization must accelerate the sustainability of your existing stock in the coming years. Despite the fact that you have fewer and fewer financial resources and FTEs at your disposal, you are still expected to manage complex tasks in the right direction. But how and where to start? What legal snags are there? And in which cases does the obligation to connect to the gas transport network lapse?

For whom?

This workshop is ideally suited for directors, property managers, heads of real estate, legal staff, facility managers, technical managers, appraisers and financiers of social real estate.
