1) Objective

This topic contributes to the goals of the EU Renovation Wave strategy and aims to help implement current and future buildings policies, notably in view of the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), but considering as well aspects of the New European Bauhaus initiative.

This topic addresses several areas that are key for the achievement of the ambitious EU targets for the decarbonisation of buildings. It aims to develop and deploy approaches that bring actors, markets, frameworks and innovative solutions together to increase the attractiveness of building performance up-grades and to reduce the administrative, logistic and financial burden that still goes along with (deep) retrofitting of buildings. The topic also aims to address the need for quality data to make verification and financing more robust and to help deploy services that valorise building energy efficiency and smartness. Proposals should, where appropriate, explore synergies, while linking to, building on, complementing or promoting the market uptake of results from projects funded under other EU programmes, notably Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.

2) Eligibility

In order to be eligible, the applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must: be legal entities (public or private bodies).

3) Location

Proposals must relate to activities taking place in EU countries, Ukraine, Moldova, North Macedonia.

4) Budget

The total budget earmarked for grants under this call is €6,000,000. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to €1,500,000 would allow the specific objectives to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

5) Application

The application deadline is 19 September 2024 17:00:00 Brussels time.
