Program - Electrical Safety & Energy Transition

Electrical Safety & Energy Transition: Preparing Buildings for a Safe Energy Transition

The conference ‘Electrical Safety & Energy Transition: Preparing Buildings for a Safe Energy Transition’ is co-organised by the European Association of Electrical Contractors (AIE), the European Copper Institute (ECI), the European Committee of Electrical Installation Equipment Manufacturers (CECAPI), and the International Federation for the Safety of Electricity Users (Fisuel).

It will focus on electrical safety in buildings, discussing the key challenges ahead linked, in particular, to decarbonisation. Electricity is poised to play a predominant role in our buildings and clean, decentralized technologies will multiply electrical uses and transform electrical installations in our homes. What are the successful measures for minimising electrical hazards and fires in dwellings and what conditions enable a safe energy transition for buildings?

This event should be attended by representatives from the electrical value chain, from manufacturers, to distributors and installers, electrical safety experts, building technologies experts, consumer and tenant interest representatives, fire brigades, insurance companies, and policymakers covering energy and building legislation.
