By joining the scheme, the two banks will adopt standards which are currently being tested as part of an EU-backed pilot programme involving banks and financial institutions representing a combined lending power of over €3 trillion, equal to around 20% of the EU’s GDP.
The pilot scheme aims at trialling new criteria for energy efficiency mortgages for homebuyers. The proposed standards will provide lenders with the critical information they need to understand how energy use and efficiency improvements impact on mortgage risks.

For a clearer picture of how housing providers across Europe are assessing and managing energy efficiency risk, the REVALUE project partners invite you to take part in this survey.
Once the data has been gathered, results will be shared with participants to see where they stand compared to other housing providers.

The EmBuild project published this assessment of the updated national renovation strategies of Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Romania and Slovenia.
The development and implementation of national renovation strategies by EU Member States is required by the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). Article 4 of the Directive required national governments to present a first version of their renovation strategy to the European Commission in April 2014, and that this strategy be updated every three years.

The STUNNING Renovation Hub, a virtual platform for the interactive knowledge exchange in energy-efficient building renovation, was launched by the EU-funded, Horizon 2020 project STUNNING in September 2018. It enables stakeholders throughout the value chain to share knowledge and experiences with each other through articles on their innovative refurbishment packages, replicable business models and case studies on their successful implementation.
