Abstract

The geographic scope of the project "Integrated strategies and policy instruments for retrofitting buildings to reduce primary energy use and GHG emissions" (INSPIRE) is on four European countries: Denmark, Romania, Sweden and Switzerland. The building sector accounts for 40% to 50% of the final energy consumption in these countries. While in the European Union (EU) energy-related requirements for new buildings are constantly increasing (e.g. EPBD; nearly zero energy buildings up to 2020), the improvement of energy performance of the existing building stock constitutes a major challenge for the future, especially with relation to the greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals of 2050. The mastering of this challenge requires the identification of cost optimal retrofit strategies to achieve maximal reduction of energy consumption and carbon emissions through and within building renovation.
