Abstract: Energy efficiency in buildings is a top priority for energy policy at European Union level. Important legislative initiatives are in place to increase the diffusion of high energy performance buildings in European building stock. However, the cost for achieving energy efficiency, especially in the field of building construction and renovation, is still high and this acts as a barrier in individual investment decisions. This is likely to increase the division between advantaged and disadvantaged social groups, fostering vicious circles of social exclusions, fuel poverty, precariousness and uncertainty on the future. Structuring a Concept for a Design Competition is a way to build a path to achieve concrete results. The Guidelines of this Competition can serve as a concept catalyst for demonstrations, showcase projects, innovative ideas to merge societal, economic and environmental goals in the field of building design and construction.
