Title: Lessons Learned to Inform Integrated Approaches for the Renovation and Modernisation of the Built Environment
: This study aims to identify lessons that can be learned from existing legislative and non-legislative measures, including the EPBD and related tools (but not limited to them), for supporting the transition to a more sustainable built environment and to actively engaging citizens in achieving the necessary transformation of our building stock to adapt to climate change. In order to support the transition to a more sustainable built environment, it would be valuable to have a better understanding of the potential of buildings policy more generally, and of the EPBD and related enabling measures in particular, to contribute to achieving broader policy objectives. This analysis should be conscious of complementary EU legislation and initiatives touching on buildings and their energy or sustainability aspects.
Deadline: 09/09/2019
Estimated total value (excl. VAT): 320 000 €
