43% of the European population lives in condominiums/multi-occupancy apartment blocks, which are primarily of low energy performance. How can cities accelerate the energy retrofitting of these buildings?
Energy Cities coordinates the project, leads the communication and dissemination activities of the project. Energy Cities also co-organises study tours in the partner cities and will launch a roll-out campaign for the replication of the governance model developed within the project in other European cities.

For a long time, and until now, they have been considered the black sheep: multi-flat buildings. As working with condominiums is very complicated for a number […]
Greater Lyon, gathering 59 municipalities, has developed a comprehensive large scale energy retrofitting programme. Based on strong and trustful collaboration between complementary public institutions and […]
Through this guide, partners from the EU-funded ACE Retrofitting project share their learnings on how to act as facilitators between co-owners in condominiums and building experts when it comes to energy retrofits.
