Green Building Councils forge new path on energy efficient mortgages

Tuesday 17th October 2017

 

Ten Green Building Councils from Europe met in London today ahead of the publication of new research strengthening the case for energy efficient mortgages.

The GBCs – from Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK - are working to prepare initial proposals for how a European energy efficient mortgage could work, in terms of the building assessment process that will underpin it.

They will be hosting workshops with national experts in early 2018 to interrogate initial proposals with banks, energy efficiency experts and property valuers. 

Next week, WorldGBC’s European Regional Network will publish its first report through EeMAP - the Energy Efficiency Mortgage Action Plan initiative, which is exploring the link between energy efficiency and borrower’s reduced probability of default and the increase in value of energy efficient properties.

The GBCs will also publish a series of market briefs early next year aimed at banks and energy efficiency experts, to help them understand the different national landscapes for building assessment that EeMAP is aiming to implement an energy efficient mortgage into.
