Industrialising deep retrofits in Europe - Driving transformational change in the construction value chain

Globalisation, disruptive technologies, emerging business models and growing sustainability concerns are putting unprecedented pressure on European industry to adapt, while also representing a significant opportunity for all players.

The Industrial Innovation for Competitiveness Initiative (i24c) and the European Climate Foundation are exploring how they can help scale and accelerate the pace of certain types of innovation or interventions - including through new business models - so that they deliver both rapid and deep decarbonisation as well as economic and competitive advantage in and for Europe. In the building efficiency space, the contours of a promising approach around deep retrofits are emerging and could help resolve the issues of scale and depth.
