Energy poverty is as widespread as it is devastating for those who suffer it. Countries with the poorest building stock have the highest rates of excess winter mortality. EU legislation requires all countries to define vulnerable customers in their energy market so they can be helped, but two thirds of the Member States have not yet done so. The public health consequences are as grievous as they are unnecessary.

Renovations are not just a precondition for the EU to meet its climate goals; they are an investment that is literally, as safe as houses, if recent studies are to be believed.
Every time a house moves up a notch in energy performance, its price gets around the same boost that it would from an extra 10-15 m² in size. That is partly down to the huge savings that can be recouped from energy bills. A renovated house that moves from an ‘E to a ‘B’ grade in its energy performance certificate (EPC) will save an estimated €24,000 over 30 years, according to an analysis of 365,000 house sales in Denmark last year.

Renovate Europe sent letters to President Juncker and each of the Commissioners highlighting the direct impact that next week’s Energy Union ‘Winter Package’ will have on the energy renovation market, and in turn on citizens and businesses across the EU. Enclosed with the letter are the 26 postcards with photo of 26 different MEPs explaining why they want to see stronger action on buildings in EU policy. These MEPs are from 4 different parties and 15 different countries, demonstrating the cross-party and cross-country support for massive energy renovation in the EU.

“Energy renovation is often dismissed as a technical topic, but it actually goes straight to the heart of every EU citizen. These are people’s homes, people’s hospitals, people’s schools we are talking about”, explained Adrian Joyce, Director of the Renovate Europe Campaign, “and these are people’s jobs and people’s SMEs that we are aiming to boost. We need a long-term vision of an NZEB building stock by 2050 in order to deliver on people’s expectations and improve their wellbeing”.
