Perceptions versus real change. Is the building market ready to value energy efficiency?
A recent survey, conducted within the ZEBRA2020 project, among real-estate agents from 8 Member States and with over 610 respondents, points to difficulties in using of Energy Performance Certificates as instruments that create market demand. Real-estate agents were asked for their professional opinion on the main factors that households consider when selecting properties to rent or buy. The analysis of the survey answers points to a set of significant findings that are further developed in a recent article published in the European Energy Innovation magazine at page 42.
The report on this survey will be soon made available.
