The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, has held a seminar "The Role of Standards in Supporting the ecological transition in the residential sector", in which leading experts from the public and private sectors underlined the important role played by technical standards in the ecological transition in the residential sector. The online event attracted a great deal of interest, bringing together more than 150 professionals from various organisations.
At the event, UNE's General Manager, Javier García, presented various areas of standardisation that drive the green transition in the Spanish residential sector: from air conditioning to heat generators and emitters, including thermal insulation, building envelopes and accessories, lighting and colour, electrical systems for buildings and homes, smart cities, sustainability in construction and energy efficiency.
UNE standards harmonise good practices, establish a common language and provide reliable and agreed tools for companies and legislators, building trust among all parties involved.
