Webinar: Building Renovation Passports – Customised roadmaps towards deep renovation and better homes

The webinar took place on February 2, 2017 from 14:45 to 16:15 and focused on the Building Renovation Passports, one of the solutions to drive the renovation of the European building stock, providing tailor-made and understandable information to building owners and investors.

Despite the proven economic and technical feasibility of building renovation and the societal and environmental benefits it could bring, renovation rates in Europe are still low and considerably below the required level. To improve the energy performance of their buildings, owners and investors face multiple barriers. Together with difficulty to access finance, one of the most often quoted barriers is the lack of knowledge about what to do, where to start, and which measures to implement in which order.

To overcome these barriers, certain governments are implementing Building Renovation Passports to support building owners with personalised instructions on their renovation options.

With the launch of the Clean Energy Package and the Energy Performance Certificates still lacking targeted recommendations for renovation, Building Renovation Passports could be one of the solutions to drive the renovation of the European building stock by providing tailor-made and understandable information to building owners and investors.

During the webinar, the Buildings Performance Institute Europe introduced the concept of Building Renovation Passports. The Flemish Energy Agency (VEA) presented the Woningpas (the Building ID) in Flanders, Belgium and its implementation process, providing an inspiring perspective on how to develop a Building Renovation Passport and covering issues such as stakeholder involvement, inter-ministerial collaboration, financing of the platform in a step-by-step approach.

The webinar also included another case study being implemented in another country, followed by a representative of the building industry, presenting their perspective on a Building Renovation Passport.

This webinar was organised by BUILD UP in collaboration with BPIE. The recordings & presentations are now available.
