EmBuild launches its Navigator: a practical guidance for the formulation and implementation of an effective renovation strategy for buildings

The EmBuild Navigator is structured around three main pillars: Plan, Invest, Benefits, which all are all aimed to provide local municipalities with the right toolbox to construct a successful strategy for the renovation of public buildings.


The Navigator starts with the planning: the value of a strategy consists not only in the renovation strategy itself but also in the process behind its development. The available tools include spreadsheets, templates and analysis on the exploration of the regulatory framework, the technical solutions, the barriers, and a national renovation strategy template respecting the requirements of Article 4 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.


The second step after the planning is the means needed to implement the strategy. EmBuild partners provided a set of best-practice examples and recommendations on how to plan and direct interventions on public buildings and private housing and attract investment.


The last section of the Navigator is focused on the wider benefits of energy efficiency. The Navigator provides local authorities with a reference to address benefits of renovation measures to target groups, as well as to strengthen motivational aspects in building renovation programs and illustrate that renovation is not only a matter of energy savings. The tools will raise the knowledge and awareness amongst local stakeholders on the wider benefits of renovation, such as comfort, air quality and local jobs.


With the use of EmBuild material, municipalities can use a comprehensive approach to plan, invest and implement wider benefits in their decision-making process and in the necessary reporting and evaluation schemes for deep renovation measures.
