Policy factsheet (2017)
CommONEnergy prepared a policy paper to highlight the important role these commercial buildings could have to reach European sustainability goals if properly included in the EU Directives.
The project has examined the sub-sector of shopping centres, which is the only one with a renovation rate of about 4.4% per year. As a consequence, more than 60% of the shopping centre building stock will be upgraded by 2030, representing a unique trigger point to realise sustainable energy-savings solutions along the planned aesthetic renovations. The findings are available in the policy factsheet: "Cost-competitive deep renovation of shopping centres, a driver for EU policies", available here.
