Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

For this edition, we would like to focus on the unprecedented levels of funding opportunities at EU level that arise mainly from European Structural and Investment Funds and Resilience and Recovery Facility. Making all available funding streams work toward energy renovation and decarbonizing the building stock is essential. The buildings sector is not only a critical segment for achieving the climate objectives of the EU, but also a huge job and added value generator for all economies in the EU.   The EU perspective will be presented by:
