PROtect traditional built HERITAGE Skills – PRO-Heritage According to the climate change and energy policy of the EU, each member state needed to identify and develop a series of energy efficient goals and regulations, of which buildings are a key element, in order to reach the set goals. However, Europe has numerous historic buildings, which need permanent maintenance and refurbishment in order to fulfil the requirements of sustainability and use.

Improving the energy efficiency of heritage buildings is one of the priorities of the European Commission. Historical buildings play an important role for their cultural value and social identity within the vast real estate heritage. Only by carefully planning the energy refurbishment of these buildings is it possible to improve users’ comfort while preserving the architectural features for which they are protected.

Historic buildings can be considered the symbol of European cities, towns and villages; entire districts are a unique proof of the European cultural heritage. Currently, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient.

Achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires decarbonising the whole economy, including the energy-hungry heating sector, says Finland’s Riku Huttunen. And that will involve cooperation at all levels of government, including local and EU authorities, he argues. Heating represents almost half (40%) of the EU’s total energy consumption. As such, it is also responsible for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, politicians seem reluctant to confront the issue head-on.

USEF was founded in 2014 by seven key players, active across the smart energy industry. It grew out of the Smart Energy Collective (SEC), a Dutch multi-partner collaboration, developing smart energy technologies and services and bringing them together into five large-scale smart energy pilot projects. This work demonstrated an urgent need for a common standard for smart energy development to ensure  interconnectivity in a future integrated market.

Municipalities and regions play a key role in encouraging energy retrofits in condominiums. Although European local authorities are tackling the residential sector as part of their climate action, many of them still ignore the specific challenges and needs of multi-apartment buildings. What are key measures, both from a policy and an operational point of view, for accelerating condominium upgrades? And how can a local government link the different stakeholders for effective implementation and measurable success?

Citizens Energy Communities are becoming increasingly popular at policy level and in society generally, for environmental, economic and social reasons. Each community may have one or more of a range of objectives and activities. For example, raising environmental and energy awareness from a social and/or economic perspective may result in an education program; or a desire to be self-supporting, or less reliant on energy suppliers, may lead a community to explore Distributed Energy Resources (DERs).
