Creating a Renovation Management Facility as part of the Renovation Wave


The Renovation Wave Strategic Communication and Action Plan will be published on 15th October.

All eyes are on the EU to help the Member States exit this unprecedented economic downturn.  The moment is now to set up a Renovation Management Facility as part of the Renovation Wave to deliver on the European Green Deal’s promise to “at least double”  the annual energy renovation rate and make its flagship initiative, the Renovation Wave, a success.

Energy renovation stands at the perfect intersection between the EU’s growth objectives and green priorities. Member States have a strong argument for prioritising energy renovation in their National Recovery & Resilience Plans to be submitted to the Commission by 15th October 2020.  But Member States will need the technical support, financial knowledge and management capacity to assist them in drawing together the different EU financing options and implement the needed reforms to roll out National Renovation Programmes.

The Renovation Wave Strategic Communication and its associated Action Plan to be published in October offer the perfect opportunity to establish a Renovation Management Facility that could do just that – help to match the EU funds with bankable, scalable energy renovation programmes, supported by a competent overall management facility to guarantee implementation and results.

  • Read here a document about the Renovation Management Facility briefly explaining who would manage the Renovation Management Facility, what its main function would be, how it would differ from other EU technical supports already available and how it would ensure that the EU reaches its 2050 climate goals.
