Refurbishment of housing estates
It is intended that Germany’s building stock shall be nearly climate-neutral by 2050. The rate of refurbishment therefore needs to be significantly increased, since the average annual refurbishment rate for the entire building stock is currently still under one per cent. The elimination of refurbishment obstacles requires not just strong financial incentives and market-ready technologies. New planning and implementation tools enable a wider range of refurbishment variants not just for individual buildings but also for entire urban districts – through coordinated technology combinations and the bundling of measures as well as their integration into the refurbishment processes. Such systemic aspects are becoming increasingly important.
Additional advisory and activation measures are necessary so that not just the municipalities and the housing sector are mobilised but also private owner-occupiers and landlords as an important target group.
