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.

Alleviating Fuel Poverty in the EU (2014)

In 2012, 10.8% of the European population were unable to keep their home adequately warm, increasing to 24.4% when referring to low-income people. Energy subsidies and direct financial support for household heating cannot provide a long-term solution to this problem. However, vigorous energy renovation measures for fuel poor homes can give a sustainable answer to fuel poverty. The study describes the current situation and makes some recommendations on how to achieve the social, environmental and energy goals set by the EU for 2020.
