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].

One-stop-shops (OSS) are easily accessible tools for overcoming market fragmentation on both demand and supply side.   They can offer holistic renovation solutions for building owners, covering evaluation of energy use, advice on interventions and access to finance and contractors.

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?

In the 2050 EU Energy Strategy, the EU has set a long-term goal for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80-95% when compared to 1990 levels, in line with the efforts of the Paris Agreement to limit the temperature increase to 1.5° above pre-industrial levels. In order to achieve this ambitious goals, public authorities at all levels need the technical know-how and resources to develop long-term climate and energy actions.

New solar photovoltaic (PV) installations are set to reach a record high this year, driven by improving markets in Europe and the United States and fast growth in India and Vietnam, consultancy Wood Mackenzie said on Thursday. Low auction prices are also expected to help boost new solar PV capacity by the end of this year to 114.5 gigawatts (GW), 17.5% higher than 2018 and the first time new installations have exceeded 100 GW.

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.

This new residential complex in Tirol, completed in 2018, is a passive house construction with 20 condominiums, 19 underground parking spaces and 8 carport spaces. The structure is U-shaped and is divided, due to the slope, in a basement with underground parking, a ground floor and 4 other above-ground floors.   The outstandingly low levels of energy demand and consequential CO2 emissions have made it achieve the Bronze status of the Austrian klimaaktiv criteria.
