Technical Summary
The EU has identified the modernisation of its building stock as one of the key priorities of the European Green Deal and is promoting a wide range of initiatives, such as those identified by the Renovation Wave, to ensure that Member States invest sufficiently in their building stock. These initiatives, while supporting a variety of objectives, are primarily aimed at making the EU building stock more efficient and are a key driver in the transition to net zero by 2050.

The Malta Long Term Renovation Strategy (LTRS) is a key planning document that sets out how the Maltese Government aims to tackle this challenge and presents an overview of the current situation and of the government new strategy. This document provides:

An overview of the national building stock addressing key areas such as energy poverty and public buildings;

  • Indicative milestones for 2030, 2040 and 2050;
  • Reviews policies and actions implemented, and propose new ones to stimulate cost-effective deep renovation of buildings;
  • Defines initiatives to promote skills and education in the construction and energy efficiency sectors; and
  • Gives an estimate of expected energy savings and wider benefits.
