Renovation Summit – Day 1

16-11-2022

The Summit will kick off at the Committee of the Regions where we will discuss how to make sure that a renovation project delivery goes as planned so that we can enable communities with a better living after the re-make of their homes. In the afternoon, we will host a workshop to make “housing neighbourhoods of tomorrow” a reality today. 

How is the public, cooperative, and social housing sector riding the Renovation Wave? 🌊

 

Two years ago, in the middle of the pandemic, not-for-profit housing providers showed ambition – to renovate 4 million homes by 2030.

Only six months later, Housing Europe and the International Union for Tenants (IUT) organised the very first Renovation Summit in May 2021, calling for a fair, inclusive, green energy transition that achieves decarbonisation while preserving social fairness and affordability.

🎯Good practices showed that this is mission possible.

The months after have been incredibly turbulent. Tenants, residents, social and affordable housing providers, and cities faced the impact of the coronavirus, have been welcoming Ukrainians fleeing their countries, and paying incredibly high energy bills and construction materials.

Legislative, financial, and soft measures backed up with solid innovation can still ensure a smooth energy transition for homes and neighbourhoods in Europe.

Who? How? By when?

⌛️The second edition of the Renovation Summit organised by the European Affordable Housing Consortium: Sustainable Housing for Social Impact (SHAPE-EU), Housing Europe, the European Construction, built environment and energy efficient building Technology Platform (ECTP), and Eurocities will be taking care of bringing these questions and answers to the surface.

The two-day event on November, 16th and 17th is arranged in partnership with the European Committee of the Regions and the House of Dutch Provinces.

Social, Cooperative and Public Housing providers are at the forefront of the fair energy transition: the average energy performance of their homes is better than in any other segment of the housing market and they cater for most of the low-income families at an affordable price.

By 2030, they aim at refurbishing 4 million homes which will decrease the energy consumption of housing units on average by 50% by 2030, cut emissions by at least 50% and save up to €700/year on average to each resident. But how to make sure the project delivery goes as planned?

How can we procure the renovation in the best way?
How can we enable communities with a high level of quality of life and affordable cost of living after the renovation?

The session is going to discuss how to make sure the project delivery goes as planned and how we can procure the renovation in the most efficient way.

The ultimate goal of the session is to describe a project implementation that ensures a high level of quality of life and affordable cost of living after the renovation.

13:00 – 14:00  Lunch at the Committee of the Regions

The Renovation Wave brings a one in a lifetime opportunity to make our buildings less energy consuming, but also more liveable and affordable for everybody. Often building renovation works absorb all financial resources available while the social and design aspects of a district remain unfunded.

However, residents’ acceptance and satisfaction are greatly influenced by other issues than energy efficiency measures like: comfort (indoor air quality, temperature, lighting and noise levels); affordability of energy and housing;  access to services and amenities; availability of green space; and good architectural design.

In other words, making renovated housing districts ‘beautiful, sustainable and inclusive’ as the New European Bauhaus Initiative claims. In this session, we are bringing people working on the ground to make the “housing neighbourhoods of tomorrow”, a reality today.
