Consumers are willing and ready to play their part in the green housing transition, but they will need guidance and support along the way, writes Monique Goyens. Goyens is director general of BEUC, the European consumer organisation.   Europe’s building stock currently accounts for 36% of European greenhouse gas emissions. Addressing this will mean future-proofing our homes by thoroughly renovating them. But the complexity and expense of doing so is holding many people back.

Accessible, easy and sufficient funding is key to speed up renovations in the EU. The EU Renovation Wave strategy, published in 2020, estimates the additional investment to double current renovation rates at around €90 billion per year.

Europe’s buildings have the potential to play a key role in our future energy systems. Making them more efficient reduces the need for expensive power plant capacity, defers the costly upgrading of network infrastructure, and enables this infrastructure to be used with more flexibility. The fact that energy efficiency is not adequately compensated for these benefits (SENSEI, 2020) acts as a barrier to its deployment. It deprives it of valuable funding and means that we all pay more to ensure the adequacy, reliability and security of our energy systems.

But just how bright that light will be depends on our actions today.   Putting energy efficiency at the center of our recovery provides a brighter economy and environment for everyone. That’s why we are thrilled to announce that this year’s EE Global Forum will focus on how we can Build Back Brighter.
