EU support for (deep) energy renovation of buildings

Deep renovation can potentially reduce the energy consumption of the building stock by 36% until 2030

As reported by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE), deep renovation can potentially reduce the energy consumption of the building stock by 36% until 2030. At the same time, it can reduce fuel poverty and contribute to EU energy security, while boosting innovation and employment, and improving living conditions.

Various EU funding programmes address the building renovation challenges, including Interreg. The Overview Article written by Marianna Papaglastra, presents examples of EU-funded projects which support deep renovation. These include support for EU Member States to develop national renovation strategies, and projects tailored to support specific typologies of buildings.

For what concerns the investments in the energy-efficient renovation of public buildings - since they represent about 12% of the EU building stock area - they should lead the way in the field of energy performance of buildings.

SISMA has started its mission in the mobilisation of smart financing for building renovation and in strengthening the links between public funding for building renovation and energy performance certificates.
