Multiple Benefits of Energy Renovating the Building Stock in the EU
Jobs and Growth
We spend over 90% of our lives inside buildings. Aspects such as daylight, thermal comfort, indoor air quality and acoustics all have an impact on our health, learning abilities and productivity. Renovating our buildings not only improves energy efficiency and property value – but can also address health problems and accessibility.
Renovation programs benefit public finances: ambitious renovation investments can bring a return of up to €39 billion in 2020 and double that by 2030 to public finances if investments are maintained. Investing in deep energy efficient renovation gives a good return: €1 invested by government in renovations can return up to €5 back to public finances, within one year.
