The City of Rotterdam provided support to ´Associations of Owners´ (AOOs) to accelerate the renovation of private sector buildings owned in multi-family buildings. This support consisted of dedicated technical assistance to Associations of Owners in decision-making towards energy renovation of their dwellings, including the technical analysis of the energy efficiency measures, requests for quotes, and the participation in the AOOs meetings.
Rotterdam aimed to renovate about 10,000 private dwellings in multi-apartment buildings, corresponding to about 1,500 apartment buildings, during the ELENA project period. At the end of the contract period, only 7 multi-apartment buildings were renovated. Most of the investments were related to the renovation of the heating system and also included some investments related to the insulation of the building’s façade and replacement of windows.
