UIPI conducted an online survey to assess European property owners’ capacity and willingness to renovate their homes. By approaching how the sector and households are adapting and making their properties more climate friendly, and how the Covid-19 has affected their objectives, we can now draw a more accurate picture of where property owners stand regarding renovation.

Positive energy districts and neighbourhoods (PEDs) are a promising approach to rapidly achieve decarbonisation goals while creating more resilient and liveable cities. However, PEDs are challenging to implement because they require fundamental changes in the ways that cities are planned, designed, and operated in the long term.

The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) is a key stepping-stone to boost the transition towards a climate neutral energy system through the development of low-carbon technologies in a fast and cost-competitive way.   By improving new technologies and bringing down costs through coordinated national research efforts, the SET Plan helps promote cooperation among EU countries, companies and research institutions, and in so doing also deliver on the key objectives of the energy union.

The 2018 revision of the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) aims to further promote smart building technologies, in particular through the establishment of a Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) for buildings.  A first technical study to support the establishment of the SRI concluded in August 2018 and aimed at investigating the possible scope and characteristics of such an indicator. End of December 2018, a second technical support study was launched with the aim to provide further technical input to feed the establishment of the SRI scheme.

Renewable Energy Sources are becoming increasingly important in the power markets; it is calculated that almost 70 % of the global capacity additions to 2040 will be attributed to renewables. Among these, solar energy is considered to be the most promising because it is clean, abundant, inexhaustible, accessible and does not produce pollutants during its use.

Europe needs a rapid scale-up of wind energy to help keep global warming well below 2 °C and deliver on its Paris Climate Agreement commitments. Established in 2016 to inform research and innovation policy at European and national level, the European Technology & Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) provides a public platform to wind energy stakeholders to identify priorities and foster innovations.

The EU’s old residential building stock requires retrofitting to become energy efficient. In turn, this will reduce energy consumption and costs. However, retrofitting is an expensive procedure and new innovative financial solutions are needed to accelerate the transformation of homes into energy-efficient structures. The EU-funded FITHOME project will propose a new financial instrument and new advanced digital methods for retrofitting processes, including flow management and quality assurance.
