Indicators and motivators for energy renovation


The aim is to improve the energy consumption of existing dwellings by 2050 through renovation. In order to create a reliable and accurate assessment of progress towards the goals of the renovation Pact, the level of renovation needs to be periodically monitored. The challenge is to develop indicators which can be monitored and which can provide a quarterly overview of the progress in Flanders.

By looking for motivators for occupants to engage in deep energy renovations,  insights from the field of behavioral economics will be used. Following a literature review, specific experiments will be carried out which will test the effectiveness of framing and nudges of energy renovation.
