This has spawned growing interest in African urbanisation by both researchers and policy makers. But a great deal of the knowledge –and policy that stems from it– doesn’t adequately respond to the challenges faced by those who govern and are governed on the ground.

The EU Renovation Wave strategy, published in 2020, estimates the additional investment to double current renovation rates at around €90 billion per year.

Europe’s buildings have the potential to play a key role in our future energy systems. Making them more efficient reduces the need for expensive power plant capacity, defers the costly upgrading of network infrastructure, and enables this infrastructure to be used with more flexibility. The fact that energy efficiency is not adequately compensated for these benefits (SENSEI, 2020) acts as a barrier to its deployment. It deprives it of valuable funding and means that we all pay more to ensure the adequacy, reliability and security of our energy systems.
