FEDARENE Info 52 – Focus on European Integrated Renovation Services

For this autumn edition, we dive into a key topic of the renovation wave: one-stop-shops and renovation services.

The Energy Transition will not happen without energy-efficient, renovated buildings. This is something FEDARENE member energy agencies and regions have understood for a long time, and this has also now become a core policy priority of the European Union through the Renovation wave. But how do we put this into practice, and to convince citizens to renovate their homes — often seen as a costly, lengthy and complicated process? How to transfer the knowledge of FEDARENE members and other delivery agents to the citizens, to support them in this journey? The answer is: Integrated Renovation Services or one-stop-shops.

In this 52nd edition of the FEDARENE Info, we partnered with the OPENGELA initiative to present you a complete overview of the topic at hand, addressing the policy dimension, but also of course the technical aspect of it, and some best practices.

More precisely, inside the publication, you will find:

  • An Edito by Jean Van Pamel, FEDARENE’s Treasurer and Inspector General at the Wallonia Region;
  • An interview of Christophe Milin and Adrien Bullier, Project Managers at the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) of the European Commission who work on the Horizon 2020 and LIFE Clean Energy Transition programmes;
  • The renovation services offered by the 3 Counties Energy Agency to the citizens of Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford, and Wexford;
  • The story of the Paris region one-stop-shop, once known as “Energies POSIT’IF” and now called “Île-de-France Energies”, which received funding from the European Investment Bank;
  • A preview of what makes the Opengela OSS so unique and how it is being replicated at national and European level;
  • Some information and updates from our QualdeEPC and Energee Watch projects.
