The Hungarian Energy Efficiency Institute (MEHI) is a nonprofit analytical and advocacy organisation, closely cooperating with all companies interested in energy efficiency investments by assisting and inciting government actions, and also by informing both the consumers and market players. It has been a clear recognition at establishing MEHI that energy efficiency is not only a common concern, but a clear business interest for many market players as well; the key energy efficiency enterprises of Hungary are among the main partners of MEHI.

A kampányról:

Az Újítsuk fel Európát kampány (Renovate Europe Campaign, REC) a Vállalkozások Európai Szövetsége az Épületek Energiahatékonyságáért (European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings, EuroACE) kezdeményezése. Célja, hogy 2050-re elérje a meglévő európai épületek energiaigényének a 2005-ös szinthez képest 80%-kal való csökkentését. A REC EU-szerte nagyszabású felújítási stratégiák kidolgozására ösztönzi az érdekelteket annak érdekében, hogy az épületek éves felújítási arányát az EU-ban 2020-ra megháromszorozzák 1%-ról 3%-ra, és biztosítsák, hogy minden felújítás mély- vagy szakaszos mélyfelújítás legyen.”

10 Years of MEHI!

On 29 April 2022, our Hungarian national partner celebrated its 10th anniversary.

To celebrate the occasion, a mini conference was held on the topic of energy efficiency first. This was followed by a social event together with friends, corporate and social partners.

During the day, MEHI presented its renewed image, new logo and new website.

From the Renovate Europe Campaign team we congratulate our partner for their anniversary and we wish them many more!

2021 - Renovate 2 Recover: How Transformational are the National Recovery Plans for Buildings Renovation?

National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) present a unique opportunity to accelerate the delivery of deep renovation across the EU. The analysis of the NRRPs in this Study demonstrates that significant renovation activity is planned and will be made possible through the successive disbursements of the Recovery Funding. But these renovations must be done properly, and the money must be spent well. This unprecedented additional injection of public funds must set the EU building stock firmly on the path to achieving its Renovation Wave goals to 2030 and meeting the 2050 climate targets.

For NRRPs to be transformational towards achieving these goals, two key aspects need to be strengthened:

  1. Ensure funding delivers a step change towards realising deep (or staged deep) renovations, going well beyond the 30% minimum energy saving recommendation set by the European Commission.
  2. Invest in the right enabling framework, including leverage of private finance, to create sustainable renovation markets that will grow beyond 2026.
