The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The newly published RenOnBill report provides a detailed analysis of the main data, drivers and challenges involved in the energy renovation of residential buildings in four focus countries: Germany, Italy, Lithuania and Spain.

As businesses and investors having energy efficiency and energy demand reduction at the heart of our activities, we look forward to seeing Europe’s global climate leadership translated in green measures which will lead to a sustainable recovery through stimulus packages. We strongly believe that the Renovation Wave as part of the EU Green Deal is a great opportunity to promote a European based industry, with technologies and expertise able to serve the renovation demand locally.

Interoperability in the construction sector is a key issue and researchers, developers and designers have tackled since the introduction of CAD systems. Traditionally, engineers, architects and site operators interact and track their information exchange through paper or digitalized drawings and e-mails. With the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques and tools, operators are using new solutions and methods to keep track and exploit these data.

BIM methods and tools have an increasing impact in the construction sector, to help to improve the productivity and cooperation across its full value chain. While BIM has mainly been applied on new buildings, the BIM4Ren project investigates its use and potential in renovation projects, through easy-to-use tools, to achieve the EU energy targets for the European building stock. In this first webinar, we will present the general concept and challenges we are tackling.

Jan Cromwijk and Veronika Schröpfer introduce new training and assessment tools developed in several EU Horizon 2020 projects to assist practitioners to identify and address the strengths and weaknesses of their low carbon skills for new build and retrofit. Online learning packages to address skill gaps have been created, are freely accessible, and can facilitate the co-creation and application of interdisciplinary qualification schemes.

One of the mission critical pathways to reach EU´s goal to reach net zero emissions through Europe’s buildings. Varied in age and style, and so hugely inefficient in their use of energy this contributes towards 36% of the region’s emissions. The EU remains a world leader in its building energy codes, but rapidly scaling deep building renovation to deliver needed emissions savings remains one of the most wickedly complex societal, technical and financial challenges of our time.
