2018. 6. 11.

The Comparative Study provides a brief overview of existing public policies promoting renovation and energy efficiency of buildings in individual V4 countries. The Study identifies best practices and pressing issues mainly in the 4 policy areas energy performance certification of buildings, innovation and sustainability of buildings, incentivizing building renovation after 2020 with limited EU funds and upgrading housing conditions of low income population in the Visegrad. 

Compilation of this Comparative Study has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the International Visegrad Fund and is part of a larger project „Improving energy security of the Visegrad through better energy efficiency of buildings“, pursued by a consortium including Buildings for the Future (Slovakia, project leader), Chance for Buildings (Czech Republic), Hungarian Energy Efficiency Institute (Hungary, MEHI) and National Energy Conservation Agency (Poland, NAPE).

The Study is based on previous work, public data and expertise of the project organizations and their experts.
