International Union of Property Owners (UIPI)
The International Union of Property Owners (UIPI) is a pan-European non-profit association comprising 31 organisations from 28 countries. Jointly, they represent more than 5 million private property owners of some 20 to 25 million dwellings all over Europe!
An UIPI immersion in European research on the energy efficiency of buildings.
The topic of energy efficiency in buildings is well known! It is not a new matter, we have been informed and regulated at national and European level for more than fifteen years. It is, therefore, an issue that will become increasingly important in the years to come.
Indeed, not only issues related to climate change take the lead on the international political scene, particularly at the Climate Change Summit, which recently took place in Paris, but also those related to energy security. It is therefore not surprising that the European Institutions have, at the beginning of the year, made energy efficiency one of their main priorities under the slogan: "energy efficiency first!.
In this context, the main role of the International Union of Real Estate Property (UIPI) is to understand the difficulties that property owners encounter in the implementation of these policies, as well as to find acceptable solutions that allow reconciling political objectives and the interests of the owners. Our organization works tirelessly on all of this!
