Why RenoValue is important

The use of property valuation is an essential aspect of the property lifecycle. Incorporating energy efficiency and renewable energy considerations into valuation practice is essential to raise awareness on the value of investing in energy efficiency and renewable energy installations amongst prospective buyers, sellers, lenders and investors.

Being able to demonstrate the business case to these built environment stakeholders is a necessary prerequisite to accelerating the market transition towards sustainable buildings in Europe. In this context, RenoValue aims to develop and pilot tailored training material for practising valuation professionals from across the EU. The training material will provide professionals with a more profound knowledge base regarding the latest energy efficiency and renewable energy technological solutions, their respective impact on various
economic building performance aspects, relevant information sources, as well as methodological and theoretical guidance so that valuation professionals can appropriately factor energy efficiency and renewable energy issues into the valuation process and advise their clients accordingly.
