Improving the energy performance of the European housing stock

In their article for DETAIL Green, Frits Meijer and Lorraine Murphy (TU Delft ) analyse the characteristics and physical quality of the housing stock in selected European countries. A second section of the article analyses the current policies that are undertaken, including barriers and opportunities. In addition to the article, here is a link list with references for further reading.
