The energy rehabilitation of housing

energy rehabilitation

As we have said in previous news, the energy rehabilitation of buildings is the order of the day. Factors caused by climate change, such as cold waves, heat waves or reduced rainfall, generate a hostile environment in which we should adapt homes to improve the well-being and health of the inhabitants.

The truth is that in Spain, because most buildings were built between 1960 and 2007, they do not comply with current energy regulations or are outdated. This creates a greater situation of vulnerability to the climatic conditions that climate change is causing. Therefore, it brings health problems to a society that is increasingly aging.

Therefore, as WWF puts it in its new study entitled: The energy rehabilitation of homes: how to improve the quality of life and combat climate change" regenerating the buildings of our cities is an essential social investment.

WWF's requests for energy rehabilitation

The WWF has followed up requests from the institutions to achieve energy rehabilitation, of which we attach those that directly influence the world of construction:
  1. “Integrate among the conditions for the technical design of the housing information on climate change scenarios, so that new or rehabilitated homes adapt to the foreseeable future situations.”
  2. Collect the adaptation and resilience of housing to climate change as a specific section of the Technical Building Code (CTE).
  3. Integrate the vision of gender and generation (age) urban planning in urban rehabilitation and regeneration policies, and the principle of access to sustainable housing. ”

Once we have seen these points and the need that society has to adapt housing, we believe it is appropriate to launch the following message: Now it is our opportunity to contribute to improving things through energy rehabilitation and more sustainable constructions that provide more well-being to the population.
