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].

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?

Building the infrastructure to decarbonise the EU’s energy system by 2050 through large amounts of green gas is projected to be up to 36% more expensive than through energy efficiency and smart electrification, even in European countries with a cold climate, according to “Towards fossil-free energy in 2050”, conducted by Element Energy and Cambridge Econometrics, and commissioned by the European Climate Foundation.

While most industries have been through fundamental changes over the past few decades, the construction industry has been hesitant to embrace digital innovation.   This does not mean that there is no innovation helpful for the sector. Building Information Modelling (BIM), the Internet of Things, 3D laser scanning and component printing, big data analytics, augmented reality, drones etc. are some examples of innovations, which could have a major impact on the construction sector.

ETIP PV is highly supportive of the EU’s interest in following a pathway that leads to a max -1.5°C warmer world and encourages it to put in place the policies that will achieve this as cost-effectively as possible. This means acting soon because zero net-carbon emissions are required by 2050.   The EU targets will be achieved with a fully decarbonised and expanded power sector that provides services in heating and cooling, transport and possibly chemical feedstocks.
