Understanding potential user needs

A survey analysis of the markets for Individual Building Renovation Roadmaps in Bulgaria, Poland and Portugal

10 Apr 2018
Description

The iBRoad project aims to eliminate barriers to deep renovation by developing an Individual Building Renovation Roadmap for single-family houses. The tool provides a customised renovation plan over a long-term period (10-20 years), which considers the occupants’ needs and specific situations (e.g. age, financial situation, composition and expected evolution of the household, etc.) and avoids the risk of ‘locking-out’ future renovation solutions due to a lack of foresight.

During the iBRoad project, the concept will be tested in three countries: Bulgaria, Poland and Portugal. In preparation for the testing, this analysis provides user-profiles and gathers knowledge of their needs, preferences, and trust in the pilot countries. Insights gathered will improve the understanding of the end-users and enable a more effective design of the individual building renovation roadmaps, tailored to the specific markets.

This Report based on a survey of 1500+ participants from Bulgaria, Poland and Portugal. This report highlights key findings from a set of qualitative interviews and a survey study conducted by Ipsos in Bulgaria, Poland, and Portugal. Decision-makers should consider the residents' viewpoints in future energy renovation projects.
