The construction sector has been hit particularly hard by the financial and economic crisis. The main challenges facing construction are:
- Stimulating demand: Efficiency improvements in existing buildings and renovations have the highest potential to stimulate demand.
- Training: Improving specialised training and making the sector more attractive, in particular for blue-collar workers, technical colleges and universities.
- Innovation: More active uptake of new technologies.
- Energy efficiency and climate change: Buildings account for the largest share of total EU final energy consumption (40%) and produce about 35% of all greenhouse emissions.
