Study of building energy renovation activities and the uptake of NZEB in the EU

Short description: 
Comprehensive study of building energy renovation activities and the uptake of nearly zero-energy buildings in the EU.
Description: 

The objective of this study is to deliver a comprehensive analysis of the renovation activities and nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB) uptake in the EU from 2012 to 2016, applying indicators in line with the Building Stock Observatory (BSO). The following main results are available for the EU and for each of the 28 Member States: 

  • Precise definitions in the context of energy renovation of buildings,
  • EU28 building stock inventory and new construction data,
  • Renovation rates and investment costs; split into energy renovation, nonenergy renovation, residential and non-residential buildings, and renovation depths,
  • Related primary energy savings; split into residential and non-residential buildings, and different renovation depths,
  • Avoided greenhouse gas emissions through energy renovation; split into residential and non-residential buildings,
  • Impact on employment rate of overall building renovation,
  • Rates for the uptake of NZEB; split into new construction and renovation,
  • Information on triggers, drivers, barriers and incentives.
