Short summary of the conference (goals and advance ideas):

The Board of the National Federation of Housing Cooperatives Hungary (LOSZ) proposes that during an international conference, the participants discuss the question of refurbishments resulting energy efficiency in condominium residences and in buildings owned by housing cooperatives.

During the discussion the participants would use the help of past experience and explore the current problems.

The Board of LOSZ noted that the energy efficient modernization of Hungarian housing stock is lagging behind and believes that reducing energy costs would lead to real savings of the maintenance costs of households in the long run.

The Hungarian housing stock today counts 4, 3 million unit which include slum-like, multi-storey houses of housing associations, condominium residences (about 1,1 million units) and family houses and a little part is low-rental houses.

LOSZ interest is related to the 1, 1 million condominium residences and housing stock of housing associations. Out of this amount, 560 000 were built in a prefabricated technology, 300 000 were built in an industrialized technology (Reinforced concrete frame, mid-block, etc.) and the remaining amount was built in traditional brick technology.
