To share a new way of doing business with a new business horizon oriented towards the “Green Economy” in a new “Green Deal” see more

The United Kingdom, which has a historical building stock characterized by poor thermophysical performance, has launched a program to perform large retrofit actions on 14 million of apartments by 2020, proposing an innovative approach based on the elimination of the initial costs of interventions, thanks to the use of the private investment (7 billion pounds/year) powered by a special Revolving Fund.

The program, called “Green Deal”, will create at least 100,000 new jobs. Even though some critical points are traceable in the approach, it would be interesting to adapt this experience to the Sicilian context, with particular attention to the interventions of sustainable construction, starting from some categories of public buildings (educational institutions, social housing, etc.).

Only a regional joint plan is able to bring together all stakeholders allowing to launch a building energy retrofit plan at a regional scale involving the development of effective tools to achieve the goal 3% public buildings retrofit yearly target described in the 2012/27/EU directive, to be extended to all public housing.

The experience of the District Ecodomus, whose main action tool is the pact of district development and is composed by organizations, institutions, municipalities and research centers, universities and banks as well as companies, could be an example to follow for a Sicilian “Green Deal”.

To do reseatch, innovation through sustainability by bringing together the best excellences available on the island and to actively participate to the District and to the Consortium promptly joining the district and the Consortium.
