EU, “Renovation Wave” for the energy renovation of buildings
The Commission publishes the strategy to reduce emissions from the sector
The European Commission has published the new strategy to improve efficiency of buildings. The
Renovation Wave (contained in a communication) aims to “double the restructuring rates in the next
ten years to reduce the consumption of energy and resources.”
For Brussels by 2030, 35 million buildings could be renovated, and up to 160,000 additional “ green” jobs could be created in the construction sector. According to the Commission’s figures, buildings are responsible for around 40% of EU energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Commission proposes to strengthen “the rules and information on the energy performance of buildings to provide a greater incentive to renovate” while it is necessary to simplify and “ensure access to targeted financing.” Last but not least, Brussels is committed to “developing solutions to create zero-energy districts in which consumers become prosumers.”
