The article discusses the general aspects of the energy retrofit of existing buildings, highlighting how the incentive policies and technology paths have produced a vicious circle, which hinders the spread of energy retrofits. The first part focuses on the international literature and identifies some useful dimensions to be applied to the illustration of the state of the art in Italy; the second part analyzes the national policies, the mechanisms that minimize effects and the reasons for the absence of medium to large scale energy retrofit cases in Italian cities; the third part deals with the issue from the point of view of technology paths, highlighting some of the difficult aspects of consolidation of the energy retrofit organizational field and the ongoing uncertainty around the efficiency and savings devices. In the conclusions some indications for policy are provided, highlighting how urban policies invest more on energy efficiency than energy saving, debunking incentive systems adopted on a national scale.
Keywords: Energy Retrofit, Urban Policies, Carbon Lock-In, Organizational Field, Technological Path, Uncertainty.
