The Simplified Economic Evaluation Tool (CERtuS SE²T) has been developed under the CERtuS Project. It is a user-friendly and informative tool on financing issues, addressed principally to Municipalities but also to building owners that wish to implement a deep energy renovation on their buildings, in order for the latter to become nZEB. The CERtuS SE²T tool is used in the initial stages of a building retrofit project in order to evaluate the project's financial sustainability.

Building Deep Energy Retrofit: Using Dynamic Cash Flow Analysis and Multiple Benefits to Convince Investors
Deep energy retrofit (DER) of the existing building stock is a meaningful strategy to reduce fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. However, the investment volumes required to undertake DER are enormous. In Europe, cumulative demand for DER is estimated at close to 1,000 billion EUR until 2050. Public expenditures and political measures can help to stimulate DER, but substantial private investments are required to achieve significant results.
