Abstract housing sector. There are two ways to reach this target – either to apply measures to all houses to reduce their energy consumption by 20 %, or 20 % of all houses has to become ‘zero energy’. This applies not only to Europe as a whole, but also to each country and region. In Europe, there are about 255 million houses, and this implies that over 50 million houses should be retrofitted to provide for the zero option. It is interesting to note that the EU targets, adopted by the national governments, require this to be done before 2020. In other words, now we have 3 years left to deal with 50 million houses, that is, we have to retrofit around 8.5 million houses a year. Realizing this, the only strategic option is to immense retrofit and upgrade programs to be run for many years to keep these targets in sight. This could and will provide a huge amount of work and thus reduce unemployment.
