Activating a market for deep-renovation through building additions: regulatory challenges

Brussels, Belgium
Banca Monte Paschi Belgio, Avenue d'Auderghem 22, 1000 Brussels
ABRACADABRA aims to build confidence and demonstrate the attractiveness of a new renovation strategy that boosts the energy performance of buildings.

The new strategy is based on volumetric Add-Ons and Renewables (AdoRes) - in other words additions to the side, top or façade of buildings, or even entire new building constructions, which are integrated with renewable energy sources. The revenue generated by these additions – through renewable energy savings, rent, and so on – can be used to help the buildings transition towards nearly zero energy.

The ABRACADABRA project is developing a toolkit, targeting policy makers, with a focus on regulatory challenges and opportunities for boosting energy retrofitting of buildings. For this purpose, the project will investigate regulatory issues, as well as available good practices, in the project’s target countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Romania, Spain, and the Netherlands).

The ABRACADABRA project will hold an international workshop on 16 March 2017 in Brussels (Belgium), addressing such topics as:

- What are the success factors of deep renovation across Europe, and how can best practices be replicated?
- What are the key challenges for activating the market for deep renovation, and how can regulation help in overcoming them?
- What kind of incentives and mechanisms are available, e.g. tax rebates/fiscal incentives, etc.?
- How to identify the best option to overcome urban planning and legal regulatory barriers at the local level?
