One of the mission critical pathways to reach EU´s goal to reach net zero emissions through Europe’s buildings. Varied in age and style, and so hugely inefficient in their use of energy this contributes towards 36% of the region’s emissions. The EU remains a world leader in its building energy codes, but rapidly scaling deep building renovation to deliver needed emissions savings remains one of the most wickedly complex societal, technical and financial challenges of our time.

EU countries had until 10 March to transpose the buildings directive, which was last updated in May 2018 as part of a package of clean energy laws.   The aim of the directive is to make the entire European building stock “highly energy efficient and decarbonised” so that emissions are brought down to near-zero by 2050.

One of the major lessons learnt by the six local authorities from five different countries, Maastricht University and the environmental charity Changeworks, all involved in the ACE-Retrofitting project: They underestimated the slowness of the decision-making process in condominiums and how long it takes for retrofits to take place (3-5 years).
