Priority for Economic Recovery

Focusing on energy efficiency in buildings is a priority for economic recovery aligned with climate transition, in line with the objectives of the European Green Pact. This Programme fits, among others, with the European “Renewal Wave” initiative, which is specifically dedicated to building renovation and aims to address the current low renovation rates across the EU, as well as providing a framework for renovation to play a key role in supporting a green and digital recovery. The programme “Energy efficiency in services buildings” covers the territory of mainland Portugal.

At a national level, this initiative is part of the National Energy and Climate Plan 2030 (PNEC 2030), approved by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 53/2020, of 10 July, the Long-Term Strategy for Building Renewal (ELPRE), approved by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 8-A/2021, of 3 February, and the Resource Efficiency Programme in Public Administration for the period up to 2030 (ECO.AP 2030), approved by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 104/2020. º 8-A/2021, of 3 February, and in the Programme for Resource Efficiency in Public Administration for the period up to 2030 (ECO.AP 2030), approved by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 104/2020, of 24 November, being fully aligned with the national objectives on energy and climate with a view to achieving carbon neutrality in 2050.
