In the EU buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption. 36% of the GHG emissions in the energy sector are related to buildings. The renovation has been a recognised priority of many governments in the EU. Still the developments in the renovation of the buildings have been slow. Only 1% of buildings are renovated per year. This put into question the achievement of the EU’s energy objectives.

The European Commission recently published Renovation Wave Strategy aiming to change this. It targets at least doubling the renovation rates. The renovations should lead to substantially higher energy and resource efficiency and decarbonisation of heating and cooling.

How to break existing barriers? How to provide well-targeted financing? How to connect the European ambition with national and local policies? What new European regulation to expect?

These are the issues we will be tackling during our debate.
