The energy renovation of 48 apartments in a social housing estate in Montignies-sur-Sambre (Belgium) forms part of the global neighbourhood rehabilitation project of  "La cité du Centenaire" which is located in the city of Charleroi on the easterly periphieral. This housing estate was designed by the architect Victor Bourgeois in 1957 and was based on the model of a garden city, but over the last decades it had become impoverished and the natural landscape blighted.

European NGOs and efficiency stakeholders applaud the 11 October 2017 vote of the Industry, Transport and Research (ITRE) Committee of the European Parliament in favour of stronger European building regulations.

Set up by the city of Stuttgart (Germany) in 1995, Internal Contracting (Intracting) has already allowed the municipality to implement over 350 energy efficiency measures in public buildings, equipment and facilities generating financial savings of EUR 22 million. Intracting enables the municipality to finance multiple investments aimed at energy savings without being bound to an external contractor. In this process a technical department or a municipally-owned company (‘the client’) submits an energy-saving project.
