Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The annual rate of home and commercial building renovation is well under the 3% required to achieve European climate and energy goals.  There is a need to accelerate investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions to boost cost-effective building renovation benefiting all Europeans.

The challenge The EC estimates that about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient.   At the same time, only 0.4-1.2% of the building stock renovated each year (depending on the country) [1].

Much of our building stock was designed and built before global warming, environmental protection and recycling became foremost in our minds and behaviours. It represents around 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions   Revamping building envelopes, making façades and roofs more energy-efficient, is a key measure in retrofitting existing stock. Combined with a smart energy management system, building envelopes can slash energy consumption while improving indoor comfort.

One-stop-shops (OSS) are easily accessible tools for overcoming market fragmentation on both demand and supply side.   They can offer holistic renovation solutions for building owners, covering evaluation of energy use, advice on interventions and access to finance and contractors.

Climate change is driving Europe to transform its energy sector. As we transition from a fossil-based to a zero-carbon economy in the next few decades, we will use more renewable energy, and the electricity we generate won’t come from a central plant. Instead, it will come from multiple, decentralised renewable energy sources that are near to load demands. But is the existing networking capable of hosting this increase in capacity? And how would the electrical grids of the future work?
