The “review and research” phase of the REQUEST programme aimed to identify best practices across Europe for increasing the uptake of EPC recommendations and promoting an integrated supply chain for low-carbonrenovation. In total, 95 case studies were identified and analysed – 77 from the REQUEST partner countries and 18 from non-participating countries (EU and beyond). 29 of these were considered best practice.
