EU Peers: European Practitioners for integrated Home Renovation Services

EUPeers aims to support the development of Integrated Home Renovation Services (IHRS) which are part of the enabling framework breaking down barriers to renovation. The overall objective of EU Peers is to support the development of IHRS as key instruments to accelerating residential energy renovation in the EU.

By creating a European Community of Practice involving at least 615 members, including 175 IHRS, EU Peers will strengthen and upscale the IHRS concept. The inclusive Community will provide multiple entry points and opportunities to participate in order to provide the maximum benefit to its members. For this purpose, 7 Community platforms, for 6 priority countries (IT, FR, ES, LV, HU, IRE) as well as for other EU countries, will be established.

At least 45 exchange & collaboration meetings will take place at national and European level. Besides an online knowledge repository and digital collaboration tool to network among peers, EUPeers will offer 3 types of capacity-building, consisting of at least 34 capacity building sessions. EUPeers will contribute to a faster and better implementation of IHRS models across Europe, providing a start-up aid to at least emerging IHRS initiatives.

The project will advocate for improved framework conditions: European and national policy recommendations will be developed and be subject of 7 public policy debates. EU Peers will tackle improvements in the collaboration among actors along the renovation journey by organising 12 stakeholder dialogues. In addition, a campaign to engage public authorities to support the IHRS deployment in their area will target 150 public authorities across Europe. Creating a strong effect within the Community and beyond, EU Peers will provide data-based evidence that will illustrate the results and impact of its members and the IHRS movement in general.

The EU Peers project (101120790 LIFE22-CET-EU Peers) is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union.
