Renovation rate 2023 - Interview with Wolfgang Amann

In 2024, the ETHOUSE Award, the prize for energy-efficient renovations in Austria, will be presented for the twelfth time.
Ethouse invited housing researcher Wolfgang Amann, cooperative member of RENOWAVE.AT, for a talk on this occasion. He exchanges views on building renovation in Austria with Clemens Hecht, spokesman of the ARGE Quality Group for Thermal Insulation Systems.

The talk is about the essential role that building renovations play in achieving climate goals. According to Amann, the main goal is to increase the rate of renovation through a combination of one-stop-shop, renovation coaching and subsidies. In the interview, the two look back on the two-year renovation campaign of 2021/22, addressing its achievements and providing a forecast of the renovation rate expected in Austria for spring 2023.

The conversation partners also touched on the subject of the high vacancy rate in Austria: According to estimates by the Federal Environment Agency, around 400 million m² of built-up area remain unused throughout Austria, which is more than 40 m² per capita.
