Case Study: Investing in Energy Efficiency in Europe’s Buildings. A view from the Construction and Real Estate Sectors
The GBPN promotes a “deep” renovation of the existing building stock to help the building sector achieve significant global energy savings and plays its role in mitigating climate change. However, what does “deep” renovation mean? Do experts around the world use the same definition? This recent report “What is a Deep Renovation” seeks to harmonise and clarify a definition for deep renovation to help building a global knowledge dialogue and facilitate best practice sharing than can support better policy-making.
At GBPN I’m participating in a collaborative project about existing buildings. The aim of the project is to investigate how we can scale up the best deep renovation projects across the world and show that buildings owners are doing and should be doing MORE AND DEEPER RENOVATIONS.
