Título LIFE-2021-CET-ENERPOV: Abordaje de intervenciones relacionadas con la construcción en distritos vulnerables
Descripción Proposed actions should facilitate the market uptake of renovation approaches for the large-scale rollout of building-related interventions for vulnerable districts, clusters of buildings, or groups of such buildings managed through common building management or housing/home-owners associations (e.g. social housing), in line with the Renovation Wave and the Commission Recommendation on Energy Poverty.
Approaches can involve traditional public mechanisms, and/or alternative models with blended financing and can focus on the private rented sector, social housing, multifamily buildings, or owner-occupied housing. To maximise energy savings, occupant behaviour and residents buy-in should be considered from early stages of the process and all actions should be coupled by accompanying measures to adapt residents post-intervention energy use behaviour, through e.g. community engagement campaigns, advice, or trainings.
Proposed actions should focus on lowering the cost of renovation (including over the building lifecycle), reducing delivery time, and minimising disturbance for building occupants. In case of rental properties, actions should help ensure that tenants rent levels are maintained after renovation works are completed and relocation of tenants and district gentrification after works is avoided.
The solutions should include already proven measures for deep renovation, such as building envelope insulation, replacement/improvement of the technical building systems, and window replacement, etc.
The approaches should be one or a combination of the following, and could also include renewable energy solutions, where appropriate:
Roll out holistic, industrialised deep renovation solutions, including also approaches based on pre-fabricated modules, where appropriate
Develop and implement roadmaps of energy efficiency measures that can be conducted step by step, starting with those with the shortest payback period to act as a further incentive (e.g. starting by replacing the heating/cooling systems, or by insulating the envelope, etc.). Roadmaps can be prepared by e.g. local authorities, or social/societal actors and should involve regular communication and engagement with all relevant stakeholders. Low-cost measures that can be quickly applied can also form a small, complementary part of such roadmaps (e.g. draught proofing, introducing shading elements, radiator reflective foils). These roadmaps should prevent lock-in effects and can be e.g. based on the renovation recommendations included in Energy Performance Certificates. At a minimum, the actions are expected to put in place the framework for implementation before the end of the proposed action, including securing sufficient financing and commitment of all relevant actors
Develop and implement roadmaps of energy efficiency measures that can be conducted step by step for social housing organisations to address the specific needs of their own building stock and residents. These should involve regular communication and engagement with all relevant stakeholders. Low-cost measures that can be quickly applied can also form a small, complementary part of such roadmaps (e.g. draught proofing, introducing shading elements, radiator reflective foils). At a minimum, the actions are expected to put in place the framework for implementation before the end of the proposed action, including securing sufficient financing and commitment of all relevant actors.
Proposed actions should highlight the multiple benefits from renovation for different vulnerable target groups, such as improved health, comfort, air quality, better social inclusion etc. The actions should also take into account Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approaches, in order to minimise carbon emissions.
The proposed actions should build on existing initiatives and involve local authorities and intermediaries such as tenants/homeowners/landlord/housing associations, social and societal actors, or renewable energy communities or citizen energy communities, as relevant.
