On the occasion of the kick-off meeting of ACE-Retrofitting – Interreg North-West Europe, the Paris Climate Agency (Agence Parisienne du Climat – APC) organised in cooperation with Energy Cities a full-day event on the energy retrofitting of condominiums, on 18 January 2017 in Paris. Besides the ACE-Retrofitting project partners, the event gathered local players from the renovation sector in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United-Kingdom, Germany and Slovakia.
After a great morning session focusing on public policy and local energy renovation schemes for Parisian condominiums, the day unfolded with a visit of the Du Guesclin multi-appartment dwelling that proves possible to complete ambitious thermal retrofitting in a condominium where there are great historical and architectural challenges to face!
“Showing that it is possible” is the motto of the actions undertaken by the APC, whose main tool is CoachCopro, which is both a collaborative web tool and a comprehensive supporting scheme that provides guidance to co-owners and building professionals through several steps to accelerate condominium energy retrofitting.
This will for an operational scheme relies on several levers aiming to accelerate the transformation:
As a conclusion, APC Director Anne Girault expressed her enthusiasm about being a partner in the ACE-Retrofitting project. She sees it as an “extraordinary opportunity to get another point of view on Paris’ experience, to benefit from others’ to go further, and to unite European local authorities around this huge common project”!

Accelerating energy retrofitting with the CoachCopro approach
|This site visit was organised as part of the Interreg North-West Europe ACE-Retrofitting project – Accelerating Condominium Energy Retrofitting (Sept 2016 – March 2020). The ACE-Retrofitting project aims at developping a governance model led by local authorities that will support owners and professionals from the building sector to accelerate the energy retrofitting of condominiums. The French CoachCopro tool will be enhanced and adapted to other countries. The project consortium is composed of the Paris Climate Agency – Agence Parisienne du Climat (France), Maastricht University (Netherlands), Energy House Antwerp (Belgium), City of Liège (Belgium), Aberdeen City Council (UK), Frankfurt Energy Agency (Germany), City of Maastricht (Netherlands), Changeworks (UK) and Energy Cities (lead partner).|
