Concept   The European Union intends to decarbonize the building sector by 2050. Investment in retrofit could benefit the EU by up to EUR 175 bn per year.   One of the biggest challenges for the reduction of GHG emissions results from the poor energy efficiency of existing buildings and still too low refurbishment rates in virtually all member states of the European Union.

Concept   Financial, technical and social innovations are essential prerequisites for a successful transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies (RES). In order to balance demand with a volatile energy supply and to increase acceptance of new technologies like smart meters, it is necessary to build new energy infrastructure and motivate consumers to change their consumption habits.

  In a first step, the DGNB criteria for new buildings will be adapted to local peculiarities in Spain and tested in a pilot phase.   This adaptation should be completed by mid-2020. Other forms of certification of the DGNB, for example in the field of renovation, for buildings in use or for urban districts, will be available in Spain in the future as well.
