last modified Nov 30, 2017 05:34 PM
The research team led by Dr Franz Fuerst in the Horizon 2020 EU project "Incentives through Transparency: European Rental Housing Framework for the Profitability Calculation of Retrofitting Investments (RentalCal)" presented their preliminary findings at the 16th FRAP Finance, Risk and Accounting Perspective and 2nd SSFII - Social and Sustainable Finance and Impact Investing conferences in Cambridge from 25 to 27 September 2017.

The twin conferences aim to facilitate the exchange of innovative ideas in the finance and accounting areas and are organised by the ACRN Oxford Academic Reseach Network. The RentalCal presentation by Donald Stevens focussed on the risk dimensions of energy efficiency retrofits and presented a sensitivity analysis of the main variables affecting this investment decision in the private rental market. The results underline that green retrofit investments are generally resilient to modest increases in interest rates and energy prices.
