Although local governments are tackling climate change, a majority of buildings in North-West Europe are still energy-inefficient and in need of deep renovation.
If action is not taken it will lock local governments into a high carbon-footprint future. By targeting condominiums (tenements and flatted buildings), the greatest number of private owners can benefit from more energy efficient homes while creating significant financial and carbon savings (50-70%).
Energy Cities, guided by a strategic energy transition vision and its capacity to ensure widespread success in its network, along with 6 local authorities from 5 different countries in NWE will introduce and promote a governance arrangement that overcomes the legal, human and financial barriers to the energy retrofitting of condominiums.
CoachCopro, a free, online collaborative tool developed by the Paris Climate Agency (Agence Parisienne du Climat), is central to this strategy and will be improved and adapted to be used in other parts of Europe.
In France, this web-based platform has already successfully assisted condominium owners (demand) and building professionals (supply) through an iterative process which cultivates trust relationships and generates direct and indirect jobs (potentially 19 net jobs created per €1M investment).
