Concept   The European Union intends to decarbonize the building sector by 2050. Investment in retrofit could benefit the EU by up to EUR 175 bn per year.   One of the biggest challenges for the reduction of GHG emissions results from the poor energy efficiency of existing buildings and still too low refurbishment rates in virtually all member states of the European Union.

More than 10 scenarios were modelled by the organisations who supported the model testing, while other scenarios were elaborated by the project team to explore the net-zero opportunities and trade-offs.   Out of these scenarios, three typical pathways were selected to illustrate the conclusions of this report.   All three reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Concept   The EeMAP is a market-led initiative focussed on the design and delivery of an “energy efficient mortgage”, which is intended to incentivise and channel private capital into energy efficiency investments.   The underlying methodology (explained below) will incentivise the acquisition of energy efficient properties or the improvement of the energy efficiency of existing properties by way of preferential financing conditions linked to the mortgage.

  As the world increasingly benefits from the price revolution in renewable energy and the world’s largest investors come to grips with the phase-down of fossil fuels, it has become clearer that we have the technology and the finance necessary to realise the Paris Climate Agreement.    Despite this opportunity, we are not acting with the urgency that the global climate emergency requires.

Within the framework of the achievement of both 2030 energy efficiency targets and the 2050 EU building stock decarbonisation goal, the pressure put on the shoulders of the actors involved in the energy renovation value chain is undeniably high.   And while many EU funded projects aim at the same goal, namely bridging the gap between the supply and demand in the energy retrofit market, how market-responsive are they?

Architects don’t usually like prefabricated solutions. But they concede there are upsides, and when time is of the essence, saving the planet becomes the priority   Practical or beautiful? The question doesn’t seem to be relevant when it comes to retrofitting buildings for energy efficiency. Prefabricated solutions are considered to be both efficient and aesthetically pleasing.

Homeowner or landlord? To convince people to have energy-saving renovations you need to know what they are really looking for   What would motivate you to renovate your house to make it more energy efficient? The cost? The legal framework? An environmental conscience? It also mostly depends on who you are, and if you actually live in your house or if you rent it.
