Renovating to save. 2017 Subsidies
Barcelona is a dense and compact city and only has urban land available (there is no developable land where it can grow). This makes it difficult for new houses or flats to be built in it and has caused its housing stock to age: the average age of its buildings are practically 70 years old and only 7 % were constructed after 1980.
Bearing in mind this reality, the City Council has been implementing housing renovation policies for years. Our government measure for regenerating land and housing in Barcelona currently highlights the need for spearheading new energy improvements associated with renovating less efficient buildings so that they reduce their energy demand and, therefore, emissions.
