Reports & Findings
Lessons learnt to inform future large-scale uptake (March 2022)
This report provides a comparison of the evaluation results in France, Spain, and Ireland of the implementation of the TURNKEY RETROFIT bricks. From this evaluation, partners have elaborated lessons learned and guidelines for future large-scale uptake of the TURNKEY RETROFIT service beyond the project lifetime.
Evaluation report (D4.2, February 2022)
This document provides the results of the data collection that has been carried out to evaluate and validate the TURNKEY RETROFIT service. Among the three countries that participated to the project (France, Ireland and Spain), the contexts are very different regarding One Stop Shops in terms of existing offer, business models, and regulations. To maximize the added value of the TURNKEY RETROFIT project, the platform and services that have been developed are specific to each country.
Lessons learnt from the local implementation (D3.4, February 2022)
This document presents the Solutions4Renovation platform in France and its current operation, as well as its adaptation in Ireland and Spain, including details on the different business models. Together with the first results and conclusions obtained from the platform operation tests carried out in different pilot cases, we’ve been able to obtain key lessons learned from the local implementation of the TURNKEY RETROFIT service.
An Assessment of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of Energy Efficient Retrofits to Existing Residential Buildings (January 2022)
This research from NUI Galway proposes an integrated framework for evaluating retrofits using a set of economic, social, and environmental KPIs for assessing and demonstrating retrofitting benefits.
The KPI framework is applied in a pre- and post-retrofit assessment of 5 case study dwellings in Ireland, revealing its usefulness in demonstrating the wider benefits of retrofitting to householders
Underpinning the role of One-Stop Shops in the EU Renovation Wave – First Lessons Learned from the Turnkey Retrofit Replication (D4.4, August 2021)
One-stop shops can play roles as facilitators in the Renovation Wave, by interconnecting funding opportunities, incorporating solutions to new regulatory requirements, organising training and apprenticeship programmes and supporting various awareness-raising activities.
The Renovation Wave Strategy outlines a central role for one-stop shops where it identifies a need for “standardised one-stop shops that can be deployed quickly”. This report discusses the replicability of the renovation journey and highlights 12 key recommendations for how the European Commission can support an effective roll-out of one-stop shops across the European Union.
Guidelines for implementation in different EU countries (D3.2, February 2021)
Taking into account the previous findings gathered in the report Identification of local needs and actors in
place in France, Ireland and Spain, this document provides the necessary guidelines to implement
the TURNKEY RETROFIT integrated renovation service in different European countries.
This report describes the various actions to undertake and identifies the potential obstacles and barriers that may arise when replicating the Turnkey Retrofit model, based on the experiences in France, Spain and Ireland.
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.
Process and impact evaluation strategy (D4.1, June 2020)
This document provides the strategy and data collection instruments (i.e. surveys for homeowners, semi-structured interviews for Local Implementation Group members) for evaluating and validating the TURNKEY RETROFIT service. This document allows project partners in France, Spain and Ireland to have a common strategy and methodology for process and impact evaluation and provides a template to present the evaluation results arising from the analysis of the TURNKEY RETROFIT service in each country.
TURNKEY RETROFIT specifications (D1.3, March 2020)
The integrated home renovation services currently operated in France by EP and OPERENE are targeting different key players in the construction value chain and the renovation process, for these two services have been designed according to their customer decision-making logic (homeowner for single-family house, board of co-owners for multi-family building).
The first step of the Implementation phase of the project is to assess technical constraints. In order to do so, this deliverable gives the functional and non-functional requirement specifications for the Implementation of the TURNKEY RETROFIT service in Spain and Ireland (methodology and digital platform).
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.
