Webinar: Heat transition in the least performing buildings of Hungary

The webinar will consist of a presentation of the study dr. Tamás Csoknyai, followed by a panel discussion. The study examines the current state of the Hungarian building stock and examines how its poor condition presents a range of financial and technical difficulties in the bid to improve air quality and warmth within Hungarian households. It explores various means by which heating systems could be cleaned and decarbonised, all whilst ensuring the financial situations of lower-income households are taken into account in a bid to ensure a just transition for all.
