Review of EU Member States’ Long-Term Renovation Strategies (GEN – 1162.00)

01 October 2020

2 min read

GEN – 1162.00. The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) has assessed the 14 available national/regional Long-Term Renovation Strategies (LTRS), The analysis by BPIE concludes that many Member States still do not seem to prioritise action in the building industry.

About BPIE (background)

BPIE was set up in 2010 to drive towards energy efficient and sustainable building policies. Among its Directors, it numbers Randall Bowie who was the main policy officer driving the development of the first Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings 2002/91/EC between 1996 and 2007 and accompanied the Commission Energy Action Plans at the time.

Long-Term Renovation Strategies (LTRS)

The LTRS are publicly available on the European Commission website. The Commission is assessing them in light of the Renovation Wave.

BPIE ‘s analysis shows, among other findings, that Member States without LTRS could miss the opportunity to access new funds from the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility to help finance the implementation of LTRS.

Only one LRTS is fully compliant with the EPBD requirements and that most of the Member States have submitted strategies that are not in line with the EPBD requirements, with many of them being deficient in assessing the wider benefits of building renovations.

Few Member States consistently followed the European Commission’s guidance in transposing the requirements of the EPBD when designing policies.

Recommended actions

The BPIE study shows that members will have to live with the different national interpretations on their LRTS. This means that it will not be possible to address the renovation market in a harmonised way. Companies wishing to address the renovation markets would still have to do it from a national or regional perspective.

The European Commission is expected to become stricter towards the Member States, if only to give the Renovation Wave a good start.
