Building refurbishment can be particularly cumbersome in private housing and there are many barriers discouraging homeowners from taking the investment decision. Notably, the market offer for building renovation in the private residential sector is fragmented, composed of a myriad of micro and small companies, and mostly uncoordinated.
Based on good practices and successful models across the EU and in line with the “Renovation Wave” initiative of the European Green Deal, there is pressing need and value in coordinating actions and make home renovation as simple as possible for homeowners. When it comes to building refurbishment, the REPowerEU plan to phase out EU dependence on fossil fuels imports has clearly identified the need to increase the number of home renovations across the EU and to better integrate the switch to efficient renewable-based heating and cooling as an integral part of home renovations.
This topic aims at: a) supporting directly the creation or replication of innovative local or regional “integrated home renovation services” and b) supporting the skilled practitioners actively involved in the implementation of such integrated services, through the creation of an EU community of practice.
Proposals are expected to address only one of the two scopes below. The scope addressed should be clearly specified in the proposal’s introduction.
Scope A: Creation or replication of “integrated home renovation services”
Scope B: EU community of “Integrated Home Renovation Services” practitioners
