PAREER-CRECE Programme [Spain]

Promoted by the IDAE (Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving), the PAREER programme aims to help finance retrofitting to reduce both the energy demand and consumption of buildings. The programme was introduced in 2013 and has been implemented through three successive calls: Pareer I (2013), Pareer + Crece (2015) and Pareer II (2017).

Over the years, 42,358 dwellings have been built. However, the geographical distribution of the actions supported is uneven, with 80% of the total actions concentrated in just four regions.

Recommendations

  • Ensure greater accessibility to data and information on the results achieved.
  • Ensure better coordination between the state and the regions as well as between the IDAE, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry for Ecological Transition.
  • Review the criteria to promote a more even distribution of aid throughout the Spanish territory.
  • Improve access to financing through alternative public financing tools (not only direct subsidies), such as combined access to grants and public credits; creation of a new line of public guarantees to obtain credits with longer terms and fixed interest.
