The Energy Efficiency Directive places energy savings requirements on EU countries' buildings. This includes making central government buildings more energy efficient and requiring EU countries to establish national plans for renovating overall building stock.
National building renovation strategies
EU countries have drawn up strategies to show how they plan to foster investment into the renovation of residential and commercial buildings. These strategies are part of their National Energy Efficiency Action Plans. They:
- provide an overview of the country's national building stock
- identify key policies that the country intends to use to stimulate renovations
- provide an estimate of the expected energy savings that will result from renovations
