The city of Differdange, with the support of the Ministry of Energy and Spatial Development and the Ministry of Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development, Klima-Agence, and INPA, is piloting a large-scale energy efficiency project to promote the renovation of existing properties and reduce the energy consumption of their residents. To achieve this, the aim is to increase the renovation rate in the most suitable neighbourhoods and to provide close support to the owners throughout the renovation process.
As one of the municipalities involved in the European project "NetZeroCities", the city of Differdange is actively supporting projects that contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. The energy renovation of the 4,000 or so existing buildings on the city's premises is one of the key elements in achieving this ambitious objective, and it is together with its citizens that the municipality will achieve this.
Identifying the different types of houses in the municipality of Differdange
The “zesumme renovéiere” project structures its approach by identifying the different types of existing houses according to their address and thereby offering specialised and tailored support to the need of each building.
To encourage homeowners to participate, we developed a “ready-to-use” catalogue showing the benefits of renovation and providing examples of the most common building types in Differdange’s neighbourhoods.
Explore the potential for renovation of your home by identifying the building type of your property to make your renovation a success!
Actors who are committed to the renovation of residential buildings in Luxembourg
The pilot project "zesumme renovéieren" initiated by the city of Differdingen is being co-developed with the government, Klima-Agence, and INPA. The aim is to explore new approaches to energy renovations of existing buildings and to evaluate the results on a national level in order to contribute to the objectives of the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (PNEC). This pilot project also supports the Netzerocities project of the municipality of Differdange, which aims to achieve CO2 neutrality by 2030.
