Template for public sector renovation strategies. A guide for public authorities
The EmBuild project published this guidance and template that aims to be a useful tool to support public authorities in developing renovation strategies, with a particular focus on the renovation of public buildings.
This guidance and template aims to be a useful tool to support public authorities in developing renovation strategies, with a particular focus on the renovation of public buildings. Such strategies should encourage renovation of all buildings, but as a minimum renovation of the buildings owned by public authorities, which have a key role to play in stimulating the market energy efficiency improvements in the entire building stock.
For small and medium sized municipalities, the renovation of public building could be considered “lighthouse projects”, which can demonstrate the potential of building renovation and stimulate the market, to achieve greenhouse gas reductions. Renovation of public buildings could be financed partly by EU funds, alleviating the financial burden from the municipalities. With regard to the residential building stock, a longer term approach to driving investment decisions is key.
