deep renovation

The EU imports 53% of its energy needs every year and on the 18th of June, the EU became 100% dependent on foreign energy imports. This comes at a cost of 400 billion per year! With existing buildings accounting for 40% of EU energy needs but wasting 80% through leaky buildings, building renovation is the low hanging fruit to reduce energy waste and become independent from fuel imports.

This paper is based on a review of a cross section of strategies, conducted by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE). It attempts to determine whether the requirements set out in Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) Article 4 have been met and assess whether they embody the level of ambition that is consistent with transforming Europe’s existing building stock into a highly energy performing one. Member States are ranked according to their compliance levels.

A recent study published by BPIE found that energy subsidies and direct financial support for household heating cannot provide a long-term solution to the fuel poverty problem. However, vigorous energy renovation measures of fuel poor homes can give a long-term answer to fuel poverty. Case studies of EU countries financing measures against fuel poverty indicate that - even though energy efficiency measures have proven to be the most sustainable solution to the fuel poverty problem - they receive lower funding compared to income and fuel price support schemes.

VELUX has announced the launch of the first reproducible climate renovation project in Brussels, Belgium. A climate renovation is a unique concept in which excellent indoor comfort is combined with high energy efficiency. After experimenting with several demonstration buildings across Europe, the roof window producer will now renovate a house in the garden-city Bon Air in Anderlecht.

Unlocking the energy saving potential of the continent’s ageing building stock will be “absolutely central” to a key review of EU policy this summer, the EU’s top energy efficiency official has said.But Paul Hodson, the head of the EU’s energy efficiency unit, flagged "micro" public action, dampening hopes of major policy advances in the review which will stock-take progress towards meeting 2020 energy saving goals and mull 2030 objectives.The paper will now be published in July, during the EU’s summer vacation period.

"Renoveren A+" is a free tool to assist in the selection of necessary measures to accomplish deep renovation. The tool supplies information towards a solution strategy for a given energy ambition, whereby the starting point is the reduction of the energy demand. Results are given for annual energy values, but there are also possibilities for finance and particular interest towards building physics, building construction and installation. When the user of the tool chooses other options, different results will be given.
