Climate Alliance project on deep renovation announced as European Sustainable Energy Award finalist

A European jury has selected the outPHit project on renovation with Passive House principles as a finalist in the 2024 European Sustainable Energy (EUSEW) Awards for its ability to lead on the clean energy transition. The EUSEW team confirmed the Climate Alliance project today as one of three project shortlisted for this year's awards in the Innovation category.

“You have to apply future-proof quality any time you replace building components or renovate. If the European building stock is not renovated with the best energy efficiency standard currently available, the energy transition will not be possible,” warns Jan Steiger, outPHit project coordinator and managing Director of the Passive House Institute. Through the project, 25 case studies across five European countries are demonstrating how high performance, deep retrofits to the EnerPHit standard can be made faster and more cost-effective.

The European Sustainable Energy Awards recognise outstanding projects for their efforts in energy efficiency and renewables. A total of nine finalists in the categories of innovation; local energy action; and women in energy have been announced. The EUSEW Awards Ceremony will take place in Brussels on 11 June. The public now has until 2 June to select the winners via an online public vote.
