Abstract

In this introductory paper the intention is to give a glimpse on the building renovation framework in some East European countries. Firstly we highlight the volume of the renovation needs that are expected in the coming years; especially in relation to the panel building stock. Obviously the total need will not be matched by executed renovation works due to the lack of funding and administrative retarding factors. But some business opportunities do exist in the renovation sector, and are foreseen to grow in coming years. Secondly we reflect on the wishes and desired of the occupants of the properties. What kind of renovations they wish to see implemented? How much the existing top-down actions and financial instruments are responding to their needs? As preliminary conclusion it is suggested that a closer cooperation between City Authority and Owner Associations, in order to implement broader scope renovation measures would respond better to the desires of the occupants. Also, energy renovations alone have limited appeal to end user, and co-benefits should be always emphasized.
