Residential building energy renovations with on-bill financing
RenOnBill aims to scale up investments towards deep energy renovations of residential buildings by promoting the development and implementation of on-bill schemes, based on the cooperation between energy utilities and financial institutions.
RenOnBill has chosen four focus countries - Germany, Italy, Lithuania and Spain – in order to capture to an extent the differences that can be encountered when replicating on-bill across wider Europe. The success of the project will allow to take a huge step forward in reaching the European Union energy and CO2 targets and will have an important impact on the economic system, offering a win-win perspective for different actors: companies from the construction sector, energy services, utilities, investors, and ultimately for the society as a whole.
The newly published RenOnBill report provides a detailed analysis of the main data, drivers and challenges involved in the energy renovation of residential buildings in Germany, Italy, Lithuania and Spain.
Wirtten by the RenOnBill partner UNIGE and published on the International Journal of environmental research and public health, the paper introduces a top down methodology for the forecasting of residential energy demand in Germany, Italy, Spain, and Lithuania.
