Introduction: the MedZEB approach The development of the retrofitting market is a significant challenge throughout Europe. This challenge faces particular conditions in the Mediterranean region due e.g. to its environmental and climatic factors, to the structure of the ownership and of the built stock, to social and economic factors, and to the consequences of economic crisis, which struck European Med countries with a higher impact than the other countries in Europe.

The European Commission has published its Renovation Wave Strategy to improve the energy performance of buildings. The Commission aims to at least double renovation rates in the next ten years and make sure renovations lead to higher energy and resource efficiency.   This will enhance the quality of life for people living in and using the buildings, reduce Europe's greenhouse gas emissions, foster digitalisation and improve the reuse and recycling of materials.

On September 16, the president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen pushed everybody's energy efficiency hopes a little further: she increased the emission reduction target from 40 to 55% in a laudable attempt to turn the European continent into the leader of the new circular economy.   Those of us who work in the energy efficiency sector are celebrating this sign of a long-term commitment; at last! What's more, the necessary resources are available to EU member countries.

Fine words renovate no building. But President Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the Union speech was a political knockout. The bottom line: the European Union cannot meet 55% by 2030 emissions reduction target without at least doubling building renovation rates. That is why the green recovery needs to start at home, literally.

Stakeholders in financial markets, capital and investment are key players in tackling climate change, supporting solutions for climate adaptation, and reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.   But to enable our economy and society’s transition to net-zero, finance requires a fundamental overhaul. Financial portfolios, for instance, need to align with a well below 2-degrees emissions pathway, incentivising green growth, sustainable development, and systems transformation.

Smart technologies in buildings can be a cost-effective means to assist in creating healthier and more comfortable buildings with a lower energy use and carbon impact and can also facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources in future energy systems. One of the focal points of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is to better tap this potential of smart technologies in the building sector.
