Fiscal and financial incentives for buildings provide cost-effective
solutions for improving Europe's building stock

Well-designed financial and fiscal programmes for energy efficiency improvement projects in buildings have a cost-effectiveness to governments of around €20-25/tonne of carbon emissions mitigated, which is lower than virtually all alternative non-traded carbon abatement measures. That is the conclusion of the latest research report from EuroACE which looked at over 100 instruments currently in place across the EU representing tens of billions of Euros of investment in energy efficiency.
The lack of appropriate financial mechanisms is often cited as one of the barriers to increased energy efficiency renovations in Europe’s buildings. With 32 case studies and 16 country-by-country datasheets provided, this research provides a comprehensive overview of what is currently available to building owners.
