We are a group of experts  representing different branches who are interested in the topic of energy efficiency of buildings. We are experts in our, often very different fields, who have a common goal – significant increase in the rate of comprehensive energy modernisation of Polish building stock. This is crucial to achieve climate neutrality, improvement of air quality, decrease in the level of energy poverty and improvement of the quality of life. In our opinion the comprehensive energy renovation of buildings should be the priority of economy recovery.

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.
