energy efficiency project

The ENERFUND tool aims to scale up investments in deep renovation of buildings across Europe. Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, it provides key stakeholders such as financing institutions, energy service companies and local authorities, with sound and up-to-date information regarding the energy efficiency of the EU’s building stock.

In recent years energy efficiency of the building stock has been recognised as a significant route to contribute towards meeting the European Union’s energy targets, by reducing energy demand and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Furthermore, improvements in energy efficiency across the built stock can provide energy security by lessening the reliance on external suppliers and increases energy affordability, which has numerous social benefits.

European countries must thoroughly modernize their building stock. The EU directives envision raising the refurbishment rate to around 3%, representing an estimated 110 million buildings across the EU. However, several barriers exist that keep actual retrofitting rates far below envisioned ones, especially in southern countries. Retrofitting at the district level has been found to be an effective way to overcome the obstacles that prevent the retrofitting rate from rising above its current rate of 0.2% - 1.0%.
