Conclusions of the identification of local needs and actors in place (D3.1, November 2020)
This report analyzes the local needs and actors in place in view of implementing the integrated TURNKEY RETROFIT service in Spain and Ireland. An in-depth analysis of the renovation market has been carried out with the support of the local implementation groups (LIGs) to identify potential users of the service (suppliers and clients as well as building professionals). LIGs are groups of experts from local and regional organizations bringing together key representatives from the supply side that are essential to run and manage the service in each country.
In light of each countries’ characteristics and the need to adapt the service to the local context, it is necessary to count on the collaboration of the local implementation groups (LIG) from the initial phases of the project and to maintain constant communication with them.
For both the Irish and Spanish markets, building strong partnerships to create a one-stop shop platform that supports the existing retrofit ecosystem is key for the success of the TURNKEY RETROFIT service. The service must provide the customer with all needed information and a retrofit roadmap allowing them to perform all steps of the renovation process. At the same time, it should offer quality assured companies and contractors and connect the customer to an available and impartial renovation consultant.
Key considerations in the design of a One-Stop-Shop retrofit model
The Irish Government’s Climate Action Plan emphasizes the need for increased retrofit activity within the built environment. As such, the plan has set targets for the completion of 500,000 energy efficient retrofits by 2030 at a rate of 50,000 per annum.
Ireland’s current retrofit uptake rate is considered relatively low, at approximately 23,000 primarily shallow retrofits per annum. Thus, a significant step change is required to drive retrofit investment at a national scale, however, there are various barriers existing to such.
Considering these targets, the establishment of a One-Stop-Shop (OSS) retrofit model has been identified in the Climate Action Plan as a key action. Such OSS models are emerging across Europe, with some OSS style models already introduced in Ireland. However, significant upscaling is required to deliver on the targets set.
This paper, written by our partner NUI Galway, provides a definition of a OSS model, highlights its benefits and how it responds to some of the barriers limiting retrofit uptake in Ireland.
Market & PESTLE Analysis (D2.1, November 2019)
Read our PESTLE report that identifies the state of play and analyses factors that encourage the implementation of One stop Shop Platforms in France, Ireland and Spain.
This report describes the analyses performed for the countries where the implementation of the new service is targeted, using the PESTLE tool. This acronym refers to the factors that have been taken into account when carrying out the analysis: Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental.
BENCHMARK OF PROMISING EXPERIENCES OF INTEGRATED RENOVATION SERVICES EMERGING IN EUROPE AND CUSTOMER-JOURNEY DEFINITION (D1.1, September 2019)
