Pilot country for new financial models of energy efficient renovations in the social housing sector
By tailoring public and private partnerships, the SUPER-i project aims to ensure new refurbishments in the social housing sector are energy efficient. SUPER-i engages investors on a regional and national level to meet their financing challenges in the social housing market. Through the SUPER-i work, we propose a set of innovative financial instruments to facilitate renovations, making the energy efficient choice more accessible. The project works with:
- Involving energy service companies in direct dialogue at local government level between financial institutions, private investors, and social housing managers.
- Collecting relevant data on energy efficient investments, helping to develop efficient financial schemes.
- Boosting the development of energy efficiency public and private partnerships.
EGC is partner in SUPER-i, working close together with the Danish Association of Social Housing Organizations (BL – Danmarks Almene Boliger). We will contribute to the development of a SUPER-i guidebook and portal, but also to the capacity building and replication activities, aimed at empowering social housing organizations, financial institutions, and energy service companies together with partners in Belgium, England, Italy, Slovenia, and Spain.
When SUPER-i is completed in the fall of 2024, we will have two finished pilot projects in Jylland, presenting concrete financing models for energy renovations in the social housing sector. This will not only be available for use in the development of green cities across Denmark but contribute to the implementation of the European ‘Green Deal’ and reaching the target of making the EU climate neutral by 2050.
