Energy renovation by individual homeowners is lagging. The impact of current support measures for these homeowners is limited because these measures are fractured and insufficiently based on the concerns of individual homeowners. Stronghouse will adjust and redesign these measures based on a better understanding of the drivers that motivate homeowners – individually and on a neighbourhood level - to invest and reduce the environmental footprint of their homes. Together these redesigned measures support homeowners in their journey from initial interest, to planning, financing and contracting energy renovation.
This innovative focus on homeowner concerns reduces the footprint of 15.000 homes, generates 100-millioneuro investment and 50 kiloton CO2 reduction. Stronghouse starts by analyzing existing instruments on their impact. Sharing, (re-)organizing and enhancing them with complementary tools, Stronghouse raises their impact and delivers four, related support measures
- Instruments and tools that enable individual homeowners to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energies
- Neighbourhood-approach to organize the necessary scale and drivers to invest
- Market access for regional SMEs specialized in energy renovation for individual homeowners
- Adoption strategies for implementing these instruments, approach and market access
