The EU project "Collaboration for housing nearly zero energy renovation" (COHERENO) makes a valuable contribution to achieving the EU's energy efficiency and climate protection goals. The project focuses on five countries: Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway.
By March 2016, these countries will develop proposals and concepts for promising cross-sector and company business models for high efficiency refurbishment of single-family houses to nearly zero-energy housing. The models are to pave the way for refurbishment from a single source. From financing, consulting and planning, right through to implementation – all parties in the construction process are to be involved.
A major goal of COHERENO is to improve the quality of the construction measures by providing specific support to all stakeholders, thus increasing customer confidence. With these two key aspects, nearly zero-energy houses can gain credibility and acceptance, and win a higher market share.
