StepUP

Make decarbonisation of existing buildings a reliable, attractive investment

What is StepUP?

Deep renovation is key to drastically reduce energy demand and achieve the EU vision of a decarbonised building stock by 2050. The technology to achieve this reduction is available on the market today, but shallow retrofits persist. To transform the market and increase the rate of renovation across Europe, it needs to become an attractive, low-risk investment.
StepUP will develop a new process for deep renovation for decarbonisation,  to minimise performance gap, reduce investment risk and maximise value. 

Our Objectives

Make

renovation more attractive and reliable

Reduce

the performance gap to <10%

Minimise

Time on site to <40%

Optimise

renovation investments

Accelerate

the renovation market
