Analysis of the construction sector in Catalonia

In the framework of the MARIE project - Mediterranean Rethinking Building for Energy Efficiency Improvement - a detailed analysis of the building sector in ten countries and regions of the Mediterranean has been developed: Portugal, Andalusia, Catalonia, Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur, Liguria, Basilicata, Piedmont, Golea (Slovenia), Greece and Malta.

The Analysis of Catalonia includes updated figures on the existing building stock and its development as well as energy consumption, broken down by uses and sources of energy. Due to the availability of data, the analysis focuses primarily on the residential sector and on the tertiary sector more tangentially. The document outlines the main barriers to energy efficiency improvement of the building stock on a large scale and suggests some measures for its improvement.
