Glass for Europe is in Venice for the 3rd Convention of Glass Associations. The best opportunity to discuss about the role of glazing in reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions in buildings with peers from all over the world.

Approximately 36 Mtoe of energy savings could be realised in 2030 in the EU, only by doubling the window renovation rate and ensuring the installation of high performance glazing products readily available on the market.

That was among the main messages Glass for Europe shared with representatives of glass associations from all over the world, during the 3rd Convention of Glass Associations (Venice, 10-11 July) organised by Vitrum and ITA (Italian Trade Agency).

Glass for Europe’s intervention, which examined the outcome of the TNO study on the energy and CO2 emissions savings potential of glazing, thrilled the audience. Participants acknowledged that supporting the uptake of high-performance glazing is a sine qua non prerequisite for reduced emissions in buildings.

The convention gathered together glass associations and journalists from Australia, Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, the UK, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, United States and Italy.
