EVENT DATE: 15-05-14 | Webinar |

Europe has a large public housing sector, about 15-20 percent of the housing stock, where very little is known about the financial outcomes of energy-efficiency investments in the building sector. In this webinar, Andrea Chegut and Rogier Holtermans presented the financial outcomes of energy-efficiency investments in the public housing sector.

The European Commission has big goals to reduce total energy consumption. To achieve that goal, regulatory nudges and financial investments are striving towards increasing the energy-efficiency of the housing sector. As part of that goal, the Building Energy Efficiency for Massive Market Uptake (BEEM-Up) Program, an EU 7thFramework Program project, delivers some first results on the engineering feasibility and financial performance of existing building retrofits that reduce primary energy demand in buildings by 75 percent.

Academically this is also very interesting as to date, studies using measurement tools like Energy Performance Certificates document a positive impact from high energy-efficiency in buildings on their transaction or rental value in residential and commercial real estate markets. However, most of these studies focus on the private housing or commercial real estate markets. This webinar, shares the financial performance and feasibility of energy-efficiency for the public housing sector.
