Renovation Plan & Energy Performance
There is a need to step up the pace of building renovation with ambitious performance targets to achieve European Union (EU) climate change targets for 2050. Buildings account for 40% of the EU’s energy consumption, 36% of its CO2 emissions and 55% of its electricity consumption. Existing building patrimony accounts for 40% of the C02 emissions (EU). In Belgium, the renovation of old buildings is a priority to reach these Green Deal objectives.
How might we conceive financing models/contractual framework for sustainable deep renovation and propose a viable alternative to demolition and reconstruction?
