EmBuild: Barriers that hinder deep renovation in the building sector

This report focuses on the main barriers to deep renovation that municipalities in Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia have to face. The barriers are divided in six groups, corresponding to the categories identified by BPIE as the main topics that should be given serious consideration to facilitate a successful planning and delivery of the national renovation strategies and their renovation potential:

  • Legislative and Regulatory barriers
  • Fiscal/Financial
  • Communication/Capacity building
  • Technical
  • Research and Development (R&D)
  • Strategic

Despite different national characteristics and building stocks and specific local conditions, the division of barriers to renovation in the six categories used in the report resonates among stakeholders. While specific barriers can be identified in each of the countries analysed in this report, fiscal and financial barriers were identified as the strongest barriers that hinder deep renovation, followed by legislative and strategic ones.

Read the full report or country specific ones on national languages: German, Romanian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Slovenian and Croatian.
