How the EU taxonomy is affecting the building industry

The EU taxonomy is a classification system, listing definitions of different economic sustainable activities.  The intention is to increase transparency around the sustainability of investments, for investors and stakeholder, incentivising further investments into the activities that are being classified as sustainable by the taxonomy. The larger goal is to help the EU meet the requirements of the european green deal, their energy targets for 2030, and to fill the need for more climate resilience after covid 19. Solutions for aligning the economic activity of building ownership for both new and old buildings with the EU taxonomy therefore becomes increasingly relevant. Enyday can become a part of the transition the EU is hoping to achieve by assisting the transformation of the building industry towards carbon neutral operation in both new and renovated buildings. These are two questions that becomes relevant in relation to Enydays energy community solution:

  • How can Enyday contribute to taxonomy alignment for ownership of new construction?
  • How can Enyday contribute to taxonomy alignment for older buildings?

The EU taxonomy addresses ownership of real estate on the energy topic in residential buildings

A differentiation between buildings built before and after 31 December 2020 is made. In addition, special rules apply for large non residential buildings, the focus in this assessment however is regarding residential buildings.

The green transition is inevitable, and goals are set by large institutions. The green transition is inevitable, and goals are set by large institutions.
