Better Housing

Description

The Better Housing scheme (called Grøn Boligkontrakt before) facilitates home-owners to implement energy efficiency measures through a 'one-stop shop' concept. Energy efficiency advisors from the private sector can get certified under the scheme, and the idea is that these certified advisors assists home-owners in the renovation process from start to finish. Some municipalities and energy companies give financing to carry out the Better Housing process.

Results

An evaluation of the Better Housing scheme indicates that households that have received advice under the scheme carry out more renovations than households that are not under the scheme.
