Energy retrofitting in residential buildings: workshop wrap-up

Brussels - La Tricoterie, Fabrique de liens

19 June 2019 - 19 June 2019

This one-day workshop brought together 60 participants from local authorities, universities and private organisations eager to improve the energy efficiency of the private building stock. They shared experiences from all over Europe on how to provide energy retrofit packages to private homeowners living in single-family houses or condominiums.

This video sums up the fruitful exchanges in a friendly atmosphere. A big thanks to all speakers and participants. 


Over the past couple of years, increasingly not only towns, cities, regions but also private players have been developing and testing solutions aimed at motivating and supporting homeowners and co-owners in their renovation projects.

The event gave ample room for small group discussions and peer-to-peer exchange! Participants shared ideas with experienced municipalities, energy agencies, craftsmen cooperatives, one-stop-shops…

Partners in the ACE-Retrofitting and INNOVATE projects came with their expertise, case studies and practical tools for setting up one-stop-shops providing integrated renovation services:

  • Motivating homeowners and co-owners to carry out energy retrofits in single houses or condominiums
  • Developing an energy renovation ‘master plan’
  • Coordinating renovation works with suppliers and service providers
  • Following up on renovation works (energy saving guarantees and work quality)

The workshop was part of the ACE Retrofitting project, which is co-funded by the Interreg North-West Europe Programme, and the INNOVATE project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
