A research study on the “11’% Superbonus” to drive energy transition in construction

The Client, a world leader in the production of sustainable construction materials, requests our support for the realisation of an informative study on the Italian “110% Superbonus”. Results contribute to public debate on financial schemes to achieve higher energy efficiency standards in buildings, boosting the construction sector, greening buildings, as well as creating new jobs and improving people’s lives. The report gives an overview of strengths and weaknesses of the bonus, and of the Italian building in time. In fact, the bonus scheme was arranged by the Italian Government to increase the national building retrofitting rate, which was around 1% in 2019.

Project Goals


the technical and financial features of the financial scheme, highlighting strengths and weaknesses


policymakers on possible ways to make the incentive more efficient through suggestions stemming from interviews of Italian stakeholders


a public-private partnership to drive energy transition in construction

Discover the Team of this project

We are proud of...

Leveraging impact for capital

We are spearheading the impact model which is fundamental to financing the hospital refurbishment. This entails a discount on the price of capital offered by the EIB in exchange for the capital saved being used to fund impact initiatives.

Driving impact through innovation

The impact fund recently invested in Stem Sel, a University of Bologna spinoff developing stem cell imaging and collection technologies. Additionally, the fund was used to finance two life-saving ventilators during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

“PlusValue is not a typical consultancy. Its dedication and seemingly unlimited network enable this team to deliver consistently superb results”

Andrea Ruckstuhl, Head of Continental Europe, Lendlease

Monitoring the value created

We designed and are currently implementing the Impact Certification Framework which will track the impact fund to ensure that all investments produce a positive impact.
