Abstract

There is an urgent need for energy renovation of the existing building stock to reach the climate goals, set in Paris in 2016. Unfortunately, energy renovation rates across the EU remain at a low level of 1% per year. Moreover, the depth of the achieved energy renovation is in most cases rather shallow. Deep renovation, referring to renovation which lowers energy use with 60% or more, accounts for only 0,2% of total refurbishments. This means that both the pace and the quality of energy renovation needs to increase to achieve climate goals in 2050. In this article we identify lessons-learned from policies for energy renovation, in particular policies regarding the Energiewende in Germany. With an effective approach, combining remuneration and information, a revolutionary increase in RES-installations was brought about.
