Financing Mechanisms for
Europe’s Buildings Renovation
Assessment and Structuring Recommendations
for Funding European 2020 Retrofit Targets
Financing Needs
for European Buildings
A review of recent research shows that from both policy and
financing perspectives, Europe is delivering energy efficiency
retrofit activity rates below 50% of those required to meet the
buildings component of its energy efficiency goals for 2020.
By Peter Sweatman
Existing Financing Mechanisms
Appropriate national policy frameworks remain the most significant drivers of optimal national energy efficiency and refurbishment outcomes
Funding the Gap
There is a clear need to create mechanisms and support programmes
which have the absolute financing capacity to stimulate investments in the order of Euro 100 billion per annum into European buildings in aggregate from public and private sources
EuroACE states that the rate of European retrofitting consistent with 2020 targets is 5 million deep interventions per annum. Depending upon required investment capital per intervention (Euro 10,000 – UK example – through Euro 36,000 in Germany) this gives an annual European investment capital budget range of Euro 50 billion to Euro 180 billion
Houser et al use a World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) model to assess
the amount of investment required to achieve the building-sector emission reductions called for by the IEA, the resulting energy cost savings, and the abatement cost of these investments across various geographic regions. This gives an annual investment figure for buildings in the EU27 countries of US$ 158 billion (Euro 110 billion) each year until 2050.
Procurement and
Development Cost Approach:
Barclays has developed a demand-driven model using estimates of the adoption rates of 40 commercially viable Low Carbon Technologies (LCTs) on a per country basis to derive a total cost of LCT adoption for Europe by 2020 (Euro 2.9 trillion) within which buildings require a total 2011-2020 procurement and development cost of Euro 600 billion (approximately Euro 67 billion per annum).
Using the IEA’s 2050 GHG targets
Investment Capital Europe's Building Renovation
Building Owner
Building Occupier
Renovation Contractor or Energy Supplier
The amount of capital that is made available by each of these sources to renovate Europe’s buildings depends upon:
three factors
1 - the source’s access to and cost of funds
2 - its perception of the risk/ return characteristics
of the renovation investment and
3 - other competing investment priorities
Case Studies
Green Deal
Germany has 39 million homes of which 75% were constructed before 1979, prior to the introduction of higher energy savings standards.
Germany currently refurbishes around 200,000 buildings a year (equating to c. 400,000 homes) and to date has retrofitted 9 million units to high energy-efficiency standards.
The German Alliance for Work and Environment was very successful in using subsidies to stimulate private sector finance:
$5.2 billion

of public subsidies
stimulated a total investment of
$20.9 billion

in buildings retrofits
creating or maintaining some
140,000 jobs

In addition, the coalition believes around
$4 billion

of the government input
was recovered through tax and needs for unemployment benefits was averted.
From 2001–2006
From 2006–2009
KfW’s financing activities across various programs deployed
€27 billion

in loans and grants
leading to a total investment in energy efficient homes of more than
€54 billion

KfW’s funding has enabled the energy efficient renovation of
1 million

, and the building of
400,000 new highly efficient homes
, and is credited with the
creation of 240,000 new jobs per year
in the building and building supply-related industries.
In the UK starting in 2012, the “Green Deal”
anticipates the retrofit of over a million homes
per annum.
The Green Deal looks to provide a maximum of
investment capital per intervention.
And is expected to deliver aggregate investment in the region of
£7bn−£11bn per year
(0.5-0.7% of UK GDP) over 15 years.

A major ramp up from existing UK Energy efficiency investment of
£1−2bn per year
The UK is also in the process of creating a Green Investment Bank to promote low carbon investment including offshore wind and energy efficiency.
The UK’s Green Investment bank (GIB) anticipates an initial capital allocation of
£3 billion
from the UK Government which it anticipates to catalyse a further
£15 billion
of green infrastructure investment over four years (
an initial 1:5 leverage ratio
Member States’ energy efficiency refurbishment policies and programmes should focus on three areas:
The alignment of the economic interests of
the five principle non-Governmental financial actors:
The removal of regulatory
and non-economic hurdles
in delivering target levels
of retrofit activity
The inclusion and adequate capitalisation of financing facilities structured similarly to those of Germany or the UK which can lever Member State public funding by factors of up to 10 times.
Building Owners
Building Occupiers
Refurbishment Contractors
Energy Suppliers
Identified potential sources of new private sector finance:
Value Framework
and Economic Incentives
Unlocking Greater Amounts
of Funding
These key features identified in the existing financial value-framework for energy efficiency renovations will lead to sub-optimal outcomes for Member States if they are not addressed by specific new policy measures on energy efficiency finance.
Lower Cost and Better Access to Energy
Efficiency Financing for Building Occupant:
a - On-bill Finance
b - Accreditation, Quality
Assurance and Standards
c - Credit Support
Placing an Explicit Value on Implied
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions:
Greater Engagement of Banks and Energy
Suppliers in Aggregation, Execution and
Finance of Energy Efficiency Retrofits:
Focused Public Investment in specific
Capacity Building, Programme Design,
Technical Support, Knowledge Sharing
and Education:
a - White Certificate Schemes
(Compliance or Cap & Trade)
b - Government Funding Schemes
a - De-risk the Underlying Transaction
b - Improving the Economics of Retrofits
c - Co-financing or Risk Sharing in the
d - Significantly Increase Customer Demand
a - Production of “Best in Class” Guidelines and
Templates for Specific Retrofit Activities
b - Increased Funding to support the Streamlining of
Public Contracting and Processes, e.g. EIB’s ELENA
c - Raise the Profile of the Non-Financial co-Benefits
of Optimal Energy Efficiency Retrofits
This significant financing gap can only be filled with adequate and coordinated policy frameworks with subsidy programs designed to:
align stakeholder interests,
facilitate execution
and, most importantly, engage key private sector actors in the wide scale funding, distribution and sale of energy efficiency retrofit solutions to their customers
there is much to learn from the
German and UK experiences
There are specific EU-level funding sources (like the EIB’s ELENA program) which can play an instrumental role in building the capacity and financing the employment of
“best practice” and standardized approaches to accelerate the processing and execution of energy efficiency rehabilitation of Europe’s public buildings.
Four keys to the greater involvement of private
sector actors and additional private sector co-financing:
Improved Financing and Simplified Procedures for the Buildings Occupant,
Explicit Valuation of the GHG Emissions Reductions resulting from Retrofits,
Driving the Engagement of Private Sector Distribution Channels (Banks, Energy Suppliers and ESCOs)
Increased Focus on the value of the Other Material Co-Benefits to Refurbishment.
Within each of these four areas we highlight selected policies which can complement new public funding programmes, modelled upon today’s “best in class”, and create a “waterfall effect” to unlock private financing sources and deliver the economic, employment, environmental and strategic benefits of this Euro 100 billion European marketplace.
Retos y oportunidades
de financiación
para la rehabilitación energética
de viviendas en España
By Peter Sweatman
El reto de la eficiencia energética
Marco político y mecanismos financieros
Análisis Financiero
Peticiones de WWF
La mejora de la eficiencia energética
La mejora de la eficiencia energética de los edificios existentes y el ahorro de energía a través de la rehabilitación energética es un objetivo clave para la UE y para los estados miembros por cuatro razones:
WWF considera que hasta el año 2020
España alcanze:
Es imprescindible que España consiga implementar un ambicioso programa de rehabilitación energética del sector residencial, ya que este sector es responsable del 17% del consumo de energía final del país y concentra la tercera parte de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero
En la actualidad existe una clara oportunidad de ahorro energético en los hogares españoles, dentro del contexto europeo de reducción de un 20% de consumo de energía primaria para 2020 y de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en un 80-95% para 2050.
Caracteristicas principales
Formas de Intervención
Utilizando la metodología LIDER, descrita por el Ministerio de Vivienda y el Código Técnico de la Edificación HE1 del IDAE1 , junto con el programa CALENER de clasificación energética de los edificios, WWF logró calcular un antes y un después en el perfil energético y las emisiones de la matriz anterior de perfiles de edificios, lugares, antigüedad y
programas de reforma, obteniendo los ahorros que se ilustran aquí:
WWF ha modelado cuatro tasas de reforma anual (117.500 viviendas por año, 312.500, 625.500 y 1,25 millones) para demostrar cuánta energía (%) se puede ahorrar en los hogares españoles para el año 2020 a través de cada una de las formas de intervención:
Conclusiones estudio de WWF 2010:
Los hogares españoles tienen el potencial técnico y económico para obtener un 30% de ahorro en el consumo final de energía para 2020 a través de la reforma de entre 500.000 y un millón de viviendas al año (de 3 a 7 veces las tasas previstas actualmente).
Reducir en un 30% el consumo de energía de los hogares españoles permitirá ahorrar 2.300 millones de euros en costes energéticos y 8,7 millones de toneladas de emisiones de CO2 al año. Así, en 2020 la cantidad total de energía ahorrada
representará 290 TWh, 10 veces el consumo energético de la ciudad de Madrid en el año 2009.
Para lograr estos resultados, la reforma de los hogares debe tener como objetivo prioritario mejoras en aislamiento que vayan más allá de las recomendaciones actuales que establece del código técnico español de la edificación.
Si no se mejora la envolvente de los edificios mediante el aislamiento el impacto integral de las actualizaciones de los electrodomésticos y las instalaciones domésticas de energías renovables sobre las viviendas será limitado.
Para poder obtener estos beneficios y resultados sustanciales para España en 2020, WWF pide:
Frente a una crisis ambiental y económica tan grave como la actual, ningún país se puede permitir olvidar el potencial de ahorro energético que supone la rehabilitación de edificios. Para lograrlo son necesarios dos elementos básicos, la voluntad política y los mecanismos financieros apropiados. Países como Alemania, Reino Unido y Estados Unidos, donde
la combinación de estos elementos ha funcionado bien, ilustran un progreso importante en el sector de la rehabilitación.
Estudio de WWF 2010
Contexto Español
Aparte de los marcos regulatorios y legislativos que están directamente vinculados a la mejora de la eficiencia energética del sector de edificación, las políticas sobre los objetivos de ahorro y eficiencia energética se expresan principalmente a través de la Estrategia de Ahorro y Eficiencia Energética 2004-2012 (E4) y a través de los Planes de Acción de Eficiencia Energética (PAEE 2008-2011 y PAEE 2011-2020), presentados por el IDAE.
En el sector de la edificación, España hasta ahora ha mostrado un importante retraso en la transposición de las directivas de eficiencia energética de los edificios, así como una pobre e incompleta integración de algunas medidas, lo que le ha supuesto a España una demanda del Tribunal de Justicia de la Unión Europea.

WWF cree que la senda para dinamizar el sector de la construcción pasa por la creación de un marco legislativo integrado que ofrezca las herramientas necesarias, tanto regulatorias como financieras, que faciliten el crecimiento sostenible del mercado de la rehabilitación energética de los edificios y contribuya a la creación y mantenimiento de empleo.
Fuentes de financiación
Con € 6000 millones de fondos federales fue capaz de desplegar € 27 mil millones a través de las actividades del programa.
Estimulando un flujo total de inversión pública y privada por un total de € 54 mil millones.
Se espera que produzca la inversión agregada en la región de £ 7 mil millones de libras esterlinas, 11 mil millones al año durante 15 años
Green Deal
El programa recibió 5 billones dólares EE.UU. millones de dólares en financiación para rehabilitar 600.000 viviendas gracias a la Ley de Recuperación y Reinversión
Comparación de los programas de rehabilitación
Se percibe una clara necesidad de crear mecanismos de financiación, regímenes de obligaciones y programas de incentivos para estimular la entrada de capital privado y de fondos públicos en el sector. Para financiar el ahorro energético es fundamental el uso estratégico de las subvenciones que pongan en marcha el nivel adecuado de actividad, así como el suministro de recursos financieros de bajo coste y a largo plazo.
Influyen en la matriz de financiación y tienen un fuerte impacto sobre las cantidades y las formas de participación del Estado en el sector de la reforma
Factores Clave
Impacto de las variables en cantidad (€) y en plazo (años) de apoyo del Estado a la rehabilitación energética
WWF considera que España puede alcanzar alrededor de 400.000 reformas energéticas profundas al año para 2014 y puede crear un sector de reformas sostenible con una óptima inversión pública.
Características atractivas de este nuevo escenario
La subvención pública directa sólo es necesaria hasta 2021.
El nuevo sector de las reformas creará entre 140 y 150 mil empleos directos durante décadas.
La subvención de inversión pública por trabajo creado puede ser de
únicamente de 6.000 euros anuales.
El perfil de los préstamos de eficiencia energética subvencionados de bajo coste y a largo plazo es muy atractivo.
Sector de la rehabilitación sostenible con inversión pública optima
Nuevo escenario
Contexto Europeo
Contexto Español
En noviembre de 2011, The Economist informó de que el mundo puede ahorrar unos 2,9 trillones (2,21 billones de euros) de dólares extrayendo y utilizando sus recursos de manera más productiva.
Este documento proporciona un análisis financiero, desarrollado con Climate Strategy & Partners, de la extensa investigación llevada a cabo por WWF en 2010 para estudiar la oportunidad de eficiencia energética que existe en las viviendas españolas.

Llega a la conclusión de que España puede emprender la reforma profunda de unos 400.000 hogares al año hasta 2050, de manera que beneficie a los propietarios e inquilinos, a la economía nacional y a los objetivos de reducción de emisiones y a ayudar a cumplir los objetivos europeos de eficiencia energética planteados para 2020 y la hoja de ruta hacia el año 2050.
El año 2012 es crítico, pues se prevé la aprobación de una nueva directiva de eficiencia energética para llenar la brecha existente
entre los objetivos de eficiencia energética de Europa para 2020 y su rendimiento real actual.
España, donde el 80% de la energía primaria se importa, no puede permitirse el lujo de no participar en las actividades y políticas estratégicas de eficiencia energética de forma inmediata.

GTR's 2012 Report
A Roadmap for a New Housing Sector
Moving Forward
This report – the second collaborative work from the Rehabilitation Working Group (GTR – El Grupo de Trabajo sobre Rehabilitación) - uses the same methodology and structure GTR developed for Spain in 2011.
By Peter Sweatman and Albert Cuchí
The report was launched at Conama 12 in Madrid on November 28th 2012. It was coordinated by GBCe and Fundación Conama
A National Perspective on Spain's Building Sector
Spain has a unique opportunity to be a pioneer among its European peers through the establishment of a new framework for energy and emissions savings in the buildings sector and creating thousands of local jobs nationwide.
Necessary Conditions for
the New Housing Sector (NHS) to be a viable sector
GTR’s 2012 economic model introduces over eighty new parameters, and significantly deepens the technical and cost analysis in the detailed hotspot intervention menus and their creation as well as better adapting itself to the more specific segmented housing characteristics and considering more external scenarios.
GTR has focused on the direct incorporation of the new legislative guidelines from the European Union’s new Energy Efficiency Directive, as well as new national and international processes and developments in the field.
In 2012, GTR was also able to more confidently detail the key components of a new legislative, operational and financing framework for a New Housing Sector (“NHS”):
To save up to 390,000 million euros in energy efficiency and GHG emission reductions in Spain, by 2050.

Deliver an 82% reduction in the CO2 emissions of Spanish homes by 2050 through deep renovation
