This report presents the main results of the research
project Methods and Concepts for sustainable Renovation
(MECOREN) carried out at VTT in 2009-2012.
The overall research project was a Nordic collaboration
between the following research partners: VTT in Finland,
SINTEF in Norway, SBI in Denmark and
KTH in Sweden.
This report presents methods and concepts for building
renovation and analyses the impacts of alternative
renovation scenarios on Finnish building stock in terms
of energy use and carbon footprint. The focus of the
study is on residential buildings. The calculations were
carried out for years 2010, 2020 and 2030.
In addition to the assessment of the renovation concepts
of building stock, the report also discusses and gives
recommendations about the use of environmental data for
energy sources, discusses and makes conclusions about the
significance of building materials in renovation projects
from the view point of greenhouse gases and total energy
use, discusses and make recommen-dations about different
renovations concepts, assesses and makes conclusions
about the economic impacts of building renovation.
