Long term renovation strategies (LTRS) are a key instrument to renovate Europe’s building stock into a highly energy efficient and decarbonised building stock by 2050. During the transposition of the emended Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), Member-States had to create an overview of the national building stock, define policies and actions to stimulate deep renovation, define progress indicators and indicative milestones for 2030, 2040 and 2050, as to estimate expected saving and wider benefits. These provide the ideal context to evaluate and share experiences within the EnR Buildings Working Group (BWG), especially at the challenges implementing policies and actions as to monitor them, which will be in the first line of discussions inside the BWG. This event focusses on the implementation and monitoring processes of current LTRS and the role of Energy Agencies in assisting the effective renovation of the building stock. This will be the touchstone for a discussion on the need to update the LTRS to a National Building Renovation Plan (NBRP) in line with the Commission’s proposal for the revised EPBD. These plans will establish specific timelines for achieving higher energy performance classes, in line with member state countries’ pathway to achieve zero-emission building stock by 2050. NBRPs will also present an overview of national policies and measures empowering and protecting vulnerable households, ensuring housing affordability. They will also ensure a coherent deployment of funds, identifying key areas and putting in place the most adequate instruments.
