    In Europe, buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. Currently, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, and by improving the energy efficiency of its building stock the EU could reduce its total energy consumption by 5-6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%.



    Local governments can influence the efficiency of new and existing buildings in their communities and can deploy a variety of measures, policies and incentives to speed-up renovation in the public and private sector.
