The huge stock of old multi-flat buildings all over Eastern Europe needs to be restored sustainable to avoid lost-opportunities. A Hungarian renovation program is underway but it will only result in minimal non-sustainable energy savings. Solanova aims to make the ongoing renovation sustainable. One selected building will be transformed into Eastern Europe's first "passive house".
Objectives: to reduce space heating and thus CO2 emissions by ca. 90%; to enable solar energy to be the main heating source; to show perspectives for development of heat supply system; to improve the inhabitants' social situation by cutting their high energy bills substantially; to improve the dwelling quality incl. the indoor climate; to open new market potential for all branches involved in the renovation; to minimize environmental impacts through the use of LCA.
