INZEB: National Supporting Partner of Renovate Europe Campaign 

The Renovate Europe Campaign (REC), launched in 2011 is an initiative of EuroACE, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings.
It is the only EU-wide campaign that focusses exclusively on ambitious renovation of the building stock in the EU and is the voice that ‘bangs the drum’ for energy efficient renovations, taking a technology neutral, integrated and holistic approach to energy efficient renovations.

Renovate Europe is a political communications campaign with the ambition to reduce the energy demand of the EU building stock by 80% by 2050 compared to 2005 levels through legislation and ambitious renovation programmes. This will bring the energy performance of the entire building stock in the EU to an NZEB performance level.
