Design and Management Options for improving the energy performances of Housing

Objective

Since the renewal of the existing building stock is about 2% per year there exists an enormous potential for improving energy savings and introduction of renewable in connection to the needs for rehabilitation of existing building areas in Europe. This will be even more relevant when the prospective new EU members states will join the EU.

And with the right initiatives which could also be coupled with the Energy Performance Directive from the EC it could be possible to obtain a large impact on the high amounts of investments which will be necessary to improve the building stock in all European countries. The aim of the proposed project is to develop minimum standards and recommendations in connection to healthy, cost effective, energy efficient and sustainable rehabilitation and to agree on actual quality agreements in this field. It is here the intention to realise a common action that can make a real difference in Europe.
