Increasing the energy performance of the EU building stock is key for the EU to achieve its climate and energy goals. However, annually only around 0.2% to 0.3% of buildings across Europe are undergoing deep renovation (aiming at achieving energy savings of at least 60% compared to pre-renovation energy consumption levels) and the average owner or user often considers such actions as too expensive.

Within the eCentral project, which aims to enhance the energy efficiency of public buildings by supporting public authorities to define efficient renovation measures and financial instruments, a survey on these topics has been launced in order to understand the level of knowledge of these instruments from public administrations (e.g. owners) and from practitioners.

Concept:   Greening investments is a top priority for the EU, which requires financial advisers to consider the environmental objectives of their clients and beneficiaries.   However, energy efficiency (EE) and sustainable energy (SE) investments face a finance gap. The EU-funded LEVEL EEI project will make these EE and SE products more competitive. It will conduct behavioural science field experiments to assess end users’ demands for environmental products.

Concept:   The building renovation sector is challenged by an investment gap due to the high degree of investment risk and long payback times. Since models based on the linear economy principle are not suitable to meet the energy emergency of existing buildings, circular economy models emerge as an adequate alternative.

Concept:   One of the principal challenges to increasing energy efficiency investments (EEI) is the lack of statistical data on the actual energy and costs savings achieved with them. Data is still hard to access because it is decentralized and in different formats.   Consequently, only a small part of this can be used to produce reliable empirical evidence on the performance of the EEI.
