One Stop Shop – An effective financing model for renovation projects in municipalities?
The EU aims at an annual 3% renovation rate of buildings. However, we are far away from a Renovation Wave as the current renovation rate is roughly at 1%. Building renovations decrease energy consumption while reducing energy poverty and at the same time mitigating C02 emissions to reach the EU climate targets. Municipalities and regions play a major role in facilitating building renovations. Unfortunately, financial questions often pose obstacles to renovation activities. Effective and easy financing models are needed. The Rhodoshop project from Bulgaria represents such an example.
In the first edition of the Renovation Lunch Zlatka Nikolova (Association of Rhodope Municipalities) and Ivanka Pandelieva-Dimova (Sofia Energy Center) will be sharing insights, successes, challenges and learnings of the Rhodoshop project with us.
There will also be enough space to share your thoughts regarding financing and facilitating renovations. What are your experiences, challenges and ideas?

We are very much looking forward for you to join us!
