The ENERFUND tool aims to scale up investments in deep renovation of buildings across Europe. Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, it provides key stakeholders such as financing institutions, energy service companies and local authorities, with sound and up-to-date information regarding the energy efficiency of the EU’s building stock.

Energy efficiency is "an energy source in its own right". By 2030 more energy will be saved than the amount of oil-based energy then, thus energy efficiency is expected to actually become the “first fuel”.

Report on suggested elements, content and layout of the iBRoad tools.
The Report “The iBRoad Concept in practice” aims to elaborate on the concept and benefits of the Individual Building Renovation Roadmap, giving an overview of the potential services to be provided by the relevant software itself, as well as of the potential links with other tools or services available on the market, and present the ones that are to be actually implemented and tested under the iBRoad project.

Between November 2017 and January 2018 we carried our research into the provision and selection of privately rented student housing across the seven SAVES 2 countries - Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, Romania and the UK. Recently this analysis of current trends in the rental accommodation market for students was made public and we can now provide some insights.

The engagement of stakeholders during the development process of the iBRoad project is considered of high value since the beginning. Following the stakeholders’ mapping procedure, a process that included the identification, the analysis, the visualisation and the prioritisation steps for each stakeholder, namely the levels of expertise, influence, involvement necessity and interest to the project, the first round of physical meetings took place during February and March 2018 in 8 countries.

The iBRoad project video has been completed with shots in Berlin and Athens, describing what is the building logbook (iBroad-Log) and the individual building renovation roadmap (iBRoad-Plan), and how they will enable a building’s deep renovation.
The video answers relevant questions by interviewing some of the key experts from the iBRoad consortium.
There is both a short (3’34’’) and a long (14’12”) version of the video available with subtitles in 10 languages (Εnglish, Greek, French, German, Bulgarian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Swedish, Romanian).

ENEA, jointly with the Construction Technologies Institute of the CNR, has made available the new version of DOCET, a simplified software tool for the certification of existing residential buildings, targeted at technicians and operators of the building sector. The software, to be used for buildings up to 200 m2 without major renovations, can draft the energy performance certificate (APE), which assesses the energy efficiency and energy class of a building and includes recommendations on how to best improve the energy efficiency of the property.
