The Renovate Europe office organised a site visit for MEP assistants to the Renovactive house in Anderlecht on Wednesday 8th March.

The RenovActive house is a demonstration project of VELUX, a partner of the Renovate Europe Campaign. A typical 1920s house in the Brussels suburb was fully renovated with the double aim of significantly reducing energy consumption but also of improving the daylight and fresh air for future inhabitants. The fact that the house is part of a social housing estate meant that costs had to be kept within a restricted budget, in cooperation with the local social housing authority, and that the project has very strong replicability potential to neighbouring houses. This is an excellent example of how to maximise the untapped energy efficiency potential of the EU building stock for the benefit of EU citizens and families, in terms not only of reduced energy bills but also improved health and comfort.
