Objective

The final goal of the project is to provide the means to increase the number of energy-efficient buildings that are at the same time healthy. A set of performance criteria for healthy and energy-efficient buildings will be developed for direct input in CEN activities. These criteria will be tested in existing buildings by performing a multi-disciplinary study in 180 office and multi-apartment buildings, of which approximately 75% have been designed to be energy-efficient. This will be carried out in nine European countries and will be followed by a detailed study in at least 32 of the investigated buildings. The health and energy efficiency status of the 180 buildings will be determined. Protocols to test the performance of a building and to improve a building will be developed. The results will be made available on an interactive web site for the public.
