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.

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.

Concept:   The ultimate goal of the REFINE-project is to contribute to the supply of sufficient and attractive financing sources for investments into energy savings and related measures.   This will be achieved through enhancement and mainstreaming of refinancing schemes for energy efficiency services (EES) which are understood as important amplifier of market growth.

Concept:   Ren-on-Bill’s overall objective is to scale up investments towards deep energy renovations (ER) of residential buildings by promoting the development and implementation of On-Bill Financing schemes, based on the cooperation between energy utilities and financial institutions.   On-Bill Financing (OBF) is a method of financing ER investments that draws on utility bills as repayment vehicle.

Fine words renovate no building. But President Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the Union speech was a political knockout. The bottom line: the European Union cannot meet 55% by 2030 emissions reduction target without at least doubling building renovation rates. That is why the green recovery needs to start at home, literally.
