European countries must thoroughly modernize their building stock. The EU directives envision raising the refurbishment rate to around 3%, representing an estimated 110 million buildings across the EU. However, several barriers exist that keep actual retrofitting rates far below envisioned ones, especially in southern countries. Retrofitting at the district level has been found to be an effective way to overcome the obstacles that prevent the retrofitting rate from rising above its current rate of 0.2% - 1.0%.
