deep renovation

The European Commission has published a report on high energy performing buildings, showcasing EU funded innovation and market uptake projects.   A total of 24 projects funded under the Energy Efficiency part of the Horizon 2020 programme are presented, addressing three priority areas: deep renovation of existing buildings, new Nearly Zero-energy Buildings, and smart buildings.

Securing funds for renovating hospitals, schools and other large public buildings to reduce their energy consumption is not easy for public authorities in the Mediterranean area. Indeed, public bodies cannot afford the high costs of deep renovation so they need to attract private investors. However, the poor financial prospects of such projects - long payback time and low internal rates of return (IRR) – makes the investment unappealing for the private sector.

The primary intent of this research project is to review the current state of knowledge and risks relating to the deep energy renovation of traditional buildings, which have different hygroscopic and thermal behaviors to buildings of modern construction, and which represent approximately 16% of the total housing stock in Ireland. One of the key characteristics of traditional buildings is that they are constructed of solid masonry walls that are ‘breathable’, i.e. the building fabric allows moisture to be absorbed and released cyclically.

In April last year, the City of Ljubljana agreed a public-private partnership (PPP) with a consortium of GGE and Petrol for the energy retrofitting of public buildings in the municipality. The EUR 14.9 million project will deliver energy savings of 8,245 MWh annually and a reduction of 2,956 tons of CO2 emissions each year.

The EU-funded, Horizon 2020 project STUNNING, which promotes knowledge exchange and interaction in the field of energy-efficient building renovation, is conducting a survey on barriers for energy refurbishments to seek out answers and recommendations for the stagnant renovation rate in Europe. Based on the survey’s evaluation, STUNNING will provide insights on the processes that need to take place for the alleviation of the most common obstacles and market failures.
