Connected: A snapshot of national renovation strategies- examples from selected EU Member States

Article 4 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive requires Member States to develop renovation strategies for the national stock of public, commercial and private buildings. April 2014 was the deadline for the first strategies, to be updated every 3 years. To document the efforts made by Member States, BPIE partnered with the Renovate Europe Campaign to examine the strategies provided by selected countries (Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain). This review asks which steps were taken to implement the 2014 version of renovation strategies and what advances have been made with the 2017 update (for selected countries).

Against the five EED requirements rated, Croatia and the Czech Republic appear as good examples, with detailed and comprehensive overviews of the national building stock and cost-effective approaches to renovation identified. Hungary, Greece, Poland and Ireland were added to a review of the implementation progress, highlighting some good practices. These countries also prove that progress in renovating the building stock is possible if political will and priority setting are allowing it.

But when designing and implementing renovation strategies, a local perspective is also imperative. European municipalities must also produce solid renovation strategies if we hope to achieve climate targets. To this end, the H2020 project EmBuild supports public authorities in Southeast European countries to prepare a long-term strategy for mobilising investment in the energy efficient renovation of the building stock. The focus of EmBuild are public buildings – as they should lead the way to an energy efficient building stock. Thus, EmBuild provides a set of tools for public authorities to use when designing their local strategies. The project will also launch next year its own evaluation of selected national renovation strategies for Germany, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Romania and Croatia.
