Housing cooperatives facing the energy transition. Insights from Poland and Czechia

2 October 2023

This study constitutes preliminary analytical material concerning the adaptative capacity of housing cooperatives to accommodate energy transition in Poland and Czechia. This report comprehensively utilises administrative data from Polish and Czech national registers for the first time. These data have been employed to (1) compare Polish and Czech housing cooperatives based on their type, age, and size, as well as (2) to provide an initial assessment of the support offered to housing cooperatives in the field of energy efficiency (3) and an initial evaluation of their susceptibility to energy crises. The results indicate that Polish and Czech housing cooperatives are at different stages of institutional transformations, which may influence their flexibility in response to crises and capacity to implement solutions related to energy transition.
