The REVALUE project was featured in a recent report from the Joint Research Center, Energy efficiency, the value of buildings and the payment default risk.
The report supports “de-risking” activities by evaluating the impact of energy efficiency improvements on the value of buildings and on operational costs. The specific impacts of labels and certificates to create “a green premium” and “brown discount” are analysed.
The report also looks at the impact of energy efficiency on the payment default risk. The analysis shows that higher energy efficiency is clearly linked to lower default risk, which should be reflected in financial products.
