In 2017, 8 % of the European Union (EU) population said in an EU-wide survey that they could not afford to heat their home sufficiently. This share peaked in 2012 (11 %), and has fallen continuously in subsequent years.
The situation in the EU Member States varies. The largest share of people who said that they could not afford to keep their home adequately warm was recorded in Bulgaria (37 %), followed by Lithuania (29 %), Greece (26 %), Cyprus (23 %) and Portugal (20 %).

The REVALUE project partners have delivered recommendations for key stakeholders on how best to ensure energy efficiency is included in the valuation process.
There are long-term risk implications for low energy performance properties and the lending industry is beginning to recognise this. Here is a short video summarising the main risks and recommendations.

The REVALUE partners delivered factsheets with recommendations for key stakeholders on how best to ensure energy efficiency is included in the process.
To avoid stranded assets in their portfolio, housing providers were encouraged to instruct valuers to consider the value impact of energy efficiency, enhance their collection of energy performance data and develop a long-term business plan to optimise energy efficiency.

The overarching aim of SMART-UP project was to understand the impact that tailored energy advice can have on the active use of a smart meter and in‐home display to manage energy consumption in vulnerable households. It did so by developing a training program for installers, social workers and other frontline workers in contact with vulnerable consumers that would enable them to inform their service users about the benefits of smart metering and to advise them on how to get the most out of their smart meter and IHD.

Conference organised as part of the Interreg NWE ACE-Retrofitting project.
The sustainable renovation of a condominium is a very complex challenge with many legal, social and financial obstacles to overcome. Numerous (highrise) condominiums date from the late sixties and are in need of deep renovation. The Interreg-NWE project Accelerating Condominium Energy Retrofitting (ACE-Retrofitting) wants to link the condominium co-owners and the building sector.

The H2020 REVALUE project has finished. Over the past 4 years, the project partners researched the relation between the value of residential real estate and its energy efficiency. A greater awareness of what investments could improve both a property’s energy efficiency and its value would help to build a business case that could accelerate energy efficiency improvements in Europe´s housing stock. Much of Europe’s housing stock is currently both aged and energy inefficient.
