Setting the 3% target for the renovation of public buildings - status of implementation (2014)

From January 2014, Member States have to renovate each year 3% of the total floor area of heated and/or cooled buildings owned and occupied by their central government. Six months after the deadline to submit a formal notification of article 5 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED, 2012/27/EU), BPIE’s latest research synthesizes in a factsheet the current status of implementation. This factsheet is the first in a series that will focus on policy implementation and other aspects of Europe’s building stock.
