The primary intent of the EU Policy Recommendation Paper is to review the current state of policies across the EU relating to renovation of heritage buildings taking into consideration their energy consumption and energy efficiency measures.

Effective policies and incentive schemes to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings require a solid understanding about the current building stock, especially the special features of heritage buildings. VIOLET partners have each contributed to an improved understanding within this report culminating in policy recommendations, as each partner has gathered facts, figures and recommendations surrounding their regional building stock. The VIOLET partnership would like to hear from like-minded persons, organisations who have comments to make on the paper, or would like to make additional recommendations, in an effort to raise this issue to decisions makers at an EU level.
