A regional program to retrofit 5000 apartments in the next 5 years, to restore investments in the real estate sector.
In Italy 70% of existing buildings needs to be retrofitted: the Public Administration will steer economic recovery.

 
The methods used by Acer Reggio Emilia to retrofit a condominium owned by the Italian municipality of Reggio Emilia, in Northern Italy, are becoming a milestone in Italy and Europe.
It is the “Fresh project”: as one of the main European actors of this EU program, Acer Reggio Emilia retrofitted the condominium situated in “via Maramotti” in Reggio Emilia, a 13-apartment building built in 1981. The costs of the projects are covered by the energy savings obtained by the retrofits, which generate for the tenants guaranteed savings on the energy bills between 7% and 10%, yearly.
The efficacy of the project has been acknowledged also by the EU which gave grants to realize the feasibility studies and recognized the implemented model and results as landmarks to be replicated.
On the 29th January, some of the most salient experts in the field gathered in Reggio Emilia to examine these topics: specialists from the European Union, the Ministry of Economy Development, the Emilia Romagna Region, the Italian “Cassa Depositi e Prestiti”, ENEA, and the national Trade Union discussed the results of the Fresh Project and the new patterns needed to exploit the remarkable opportunities that urban and energetic retrofits can give to the economic recovery of Italy.
 
The engineer Luigi Guerra, Head of the Energy Office of Acer Reggio Emilia, highlighted the energy savings realized in the condominium thanks to the retrofit, estimated around 38%, a first step towards the achievement of the EU and Italian Government objectives, which aim at having nearly zero energy buildings in the Public Sector by 2018.
The Government, represented by the engineer Enrico Bonacci from the Ministry of Economic Development, presented the new incentives for energy efficiency created by the new legislation, the “Conto energia termico” recently approved. In particular, he confirmed the intention to enrich and harmonize the set of public and private fiscal incentives, in order to start a structural program of retrofitting for the real estate public properties, to be developed through the ESCo system (Energy Service Company).
 
The solution proposed by the engineer Attilio Raimondi, Head of the Energy Department of the Emilia Romagna Region, is to give continuity to the incentive system in order to develop structural projects of deep renovation of buildings, bringing benefits to all the system of enterprises working in the real estate sector and the economy at large. A thesis which has been endorsed by dr. Fausto Braglia, Expert in Corporate Finance and EU funds of Acer Reggio Emilia, who introduced the topic of financial instruments in EPC (EPC, Energy Performance Contract), underlying the central role of the Public Administration in certifying the technical and financial sustainability of the projects, which become milestones for the private sector and which should take advantage of EU funds, national incentives and other guarantee tools, as in the German model.
Dr. Valter Menghini, Head of Kyoto Funds, Facilitated Credit and Economic Support from Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, confirmed the intention of cooperation between the Public Administration and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, in order to define the bankability of the projects and to involve the local banks in the definition process of the financing tools. The Public Administration becomes therefore decisive for the economic recovery and development, as an agent for the proper allocation of funds at facilitated rates (such as Kyoto funds), of large amounts of EU structural funds and of European Investment Bank financing for energy efficiency.
 
Indeed, in Italy, some 70% of the 11 millions of existing buildings need retrofitting. Architect Gaetano Fasano, Head of the Department of Energy Efficiency for Public Buildings from ENEA, estimated it. Particularly, he insisted on the necessity to create an incentive system especially for structural projects, reaching minimum critical amounts of investments and bundling different types of buildings, in order to develop retrofitting programs where the cost-benefit ratio is sustainable.
 
Strong support comes also from the ESCo system and from Sunia, the Tenants’ Trade Union, whose representative, the General Secretary Daniele Barbieri, underlines the quality of the project for the condominium owned by the municipality of Reggio Emilia, represented by Ugo Ferrari, Town Councillor for the City Planning and Housing, and realized by ACER Reggio Emilia, represented by its President, Marco Corradi.
 
The experience of Reggio Emilia, according to the experts, is the landmark for a new pattern aimed at developing structural programs of retrofitting for thousands of dwellings, through funding from EU programs, national incentives and energy savings: a structural project which could renovate 5,000 public apartments throughout the Region in 5 years is not only desirable, but concretely realizable.
 
Such a program would not appear ambitious; actually, it would comply with the energy savings objectives set by the EU, the Italian Government, the Emilia Romagna Region and the Municipalities themselves. They would have an extraordinary opportunity to reduce costs of housing for families and to make the local real estate companies recover with retrofitting projects.
It is therefore a necessary structural program, where the institutional actors have to play a team work aimed at renovating the public properties initially, to serve as an example for and be replicated also in the private properties.
