Scaling up deep energy renovation

  • Published on January 16, 2017
The Buildings Performance Institute Europe and the Industrial Innovation for Competitiveness (i24c) initiative explored in a multi-stakeholder process how Europe can rapidly ramp up the innovation and competitiveness of the construction sector throughout the entire value chain to scale up the depth and rate of energy renovation.
Successful programmes of deep energy renovation are feasible at a large scale provided they are supported by policy measures, by more collaboration between actors in the value chain. A set of ingredients must come together such as aggregation of demand; facilitators and integrators of technical solution packages; advisory services that give power to customers; having “à la carte” options designed to fulfil users’ needs and ambitious policy targets. Implementing support measures that will encourage innovation and scaling up deep energy renovation is a ‘win-win-win’ scenario for the economy (competitiveness and jobs), society (better and smarter homes) and the environment (more renewables and cut in greenhouse gases).
