energy refurbishment / renovation / retrofitting

Ninety percent of the existing building stock in Europe was built before 1990. These buildings are in urgent need for a significant improvement of energy-efficiency through renovation.   State-of-the-art renovation solutions are available, but costly and lengthy renovation processes and incomprehensible technical complexities hinder the achievement of a wide impact at a European scale.

As a result, their social, environmental and economic value can increase, while their cultural or historical significance is enhanced.

Indeed, public bodies cannot afford the high costs of deep renovation so they need to attract private investors. However, the poor financial prospects of such projects - long payback time and low internal rates of return (IRR) – makes the investment unappealing for the private sector.
