In the coming decades, cities will accommodate an increasing number of inhabitants. Most of the housing stock of the year 2050 has already been built but is energy inefficient and in need of renovation. In order to improve the existing stock and the quality of living there, both technical (renovation) and human aspects of energy efficiency need to be scaled up. The projects DREEAM and TRIME aim to share the best practices currently developed with a wider, European audience. In DREEAM, tenants are involved before, during, and after renovation, in order to include their needs and build trust in the process. In TRIME, goal-led training on energy efficiency is provided to the dwellers.
