Danish White Paper on Energy renovation of buildings
Buildings account for almost 40% of global energy consumption and they represent a pressing, but also promising, action area in the green transition. It is predicted that 85-95% of the European building stock that will exist in 2050 has already been built. Thus, targeting the energy consumption of buildings is a key priority for any country or community striving to reduce CO2 emissions. Promoting energy efficient buildings has long been a cornerstone of Danish green ambitions, and the innovative solutions developed by both the public and private sector have made Denmark a global leader in this field. The Danish goverment and Danish companies are constantly raising the bar and showing the way to make our buildings more energy efficient.
This white paper prepared by the State of Green team, provides tangible pathways to realise the untapped energy efficiency potential in the built environment. From governance tools and meaningful partnerships to the implementation of technical installations and successful repurposing, it encompasses a broad range of perspectives and concrete cases on how to promote, enable and support energy renovation efforts.
