Extended Public-Private Partnership for Investment in Smart Energy Efficiency Projects in a Social Housing context

Project description

An energy efficiency boost for the social housing sector

Energy efficiency renovations of social housing have the potential to reduce energy poverty and are a priority for many local governments across the EU. Energy efficiency and renewable energy actions in the housing sector are crucial for a more socially and economically inclusive urban transition. The EU-funded SUPER-i project will contribute to efforts aimed at increasing investments and data collection on energy efficiency in the social housing sector. The project will support the funding of energy efficiency renovation by establishing a direct dialogue between financial institutions, private investors and social housing managers. Starting from 3 pilot project pipelines (Denmark, Italy and Slovenia), the project proposes innovative and more profitable solutions.


An important component of a more socially and economically inclusive urban transition is the ability of the cities to implement energy efficiency and renewable energy (RES) projects and initiatives, especially in the housing sector. Despite the progress already made, the large-scale impact that was expected towards promoting energy efficiency is still far off from being fully achieved. The SUPER-i project will provide a significant contribution to generating investments and collecting data on energy efficiency in the social housing sector. Energy efficiency (EE) renovations of social housing can generate a significant social impact by reducing energy poverty. The objectives and impacts of the SUPER-i project will assist and support the European Commission to implement the European Green Deal.

The general objective of SUPER-i is to support the funding of EE refurbishment of social housing stocks across Europe while increasing the share of renewable energy in the final energy consumption through the following specific eight objectives: 1) Tailored ePPPs (EE Public Private Partnerships) and roadmaps; 2) Capacity building among financial investors; 3) Data gathering and processing; 4) Integration of EE investments within portfolio management strategies; 5) SUPER-i KPIs; 6) Awareness and Replicability; 7) SUPER-i investment pipelines; 8) SUPER-i Roadmap and Platform.

The SUPER-i project will contribute to generate substantial investments in energy efficiency within the social housing sector in two folds: 1) by establishing a direct dialogue, at local government level, between financial institutions, other private investors and social housing managers while also involving ESCOs (Energy Service Companies);
2) by collecting relevant data on EE investments, helping to develop efficient financial schemes. The direct dialogue and data collection will be pivotal to effectively boost the development of energy efficiency PPPs.
