The growing threats of climate change and the necessity of a sustainable energy transition are now well underway across the world (York and Bell, 2019). Different societies have implemented different measures to drive improvements in their energy system and meet sustainable development goals. In this context, the building sector -as one of the major contributors to the climate crisis- has a key role in the decarbonisation of the energy systems (Röck et al., 2020). At the European Union (EU) level, buildings account for around 450 Mtoe (million tonnes of oil equivalent) of the final energy consumption, making up 43 per cent of total EU energy use in 2019 (Rousselot and Rocha, 2021). Buildings in the EU are also responsible for 36 per cent of total direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions (European Environment Agency, 2021). The figures clearly show the need for fully exploiting the potential for energy conservation and carbon reduction in the building sector. The unique importance of sustainable transition in this sector has been a point of consensus in recent years (Wang et al., 2018).
