Energetic renovation of social housing in Flanders

Dutch speaking chamber on January 27, 2021

The Court of Audit investigated which measures the Flemish government took to improve the energy performance of the existing social rental housing by 2020 and what the results of the Flemish energy renovation program 2020 are. It found that this program had fallen behind. Its targets had not yet been fully achieved by August 2020: 6.3% of social housing did not meet the roof insulation target, 8.1% did not meet the insulating glass target and 9.6% did not meet the target on central heating. The investigation also showed that the realization of roof insulation, insulating glazing and up-to-date central heating is hardly sanctioned.
