The European Green Deal proposes an epochal change in the European society by transformingenvironmental and climatic problems into opportunities and making sustainable and fair the EuropeanUnion economic system. Radical changes will also concern urban redevelopment and energy efficiencymeasures in order to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve these objectives, rules andstandards, as well as financial resources and assessment tools, are needed to support both urban planningand public decision process. This paper aims to analyze the existing European programs that are applied insome European smart cities, as they constitute a valuable source of information for the development offinancial schemes and evaluation tools ad hoc for the Green Deal implementation. Moreover, the analysisof the pilot projects of the ZenN program has made possible to identify some critical issues regarding theeconomic feasibility of energy retrofit at a district scale, though further studies will be required to respondto the new assessment challenges launched by the Green Deal.
