This technical and social feasibility study is a deliverable of the Nearly Zero Energy Renovation (NeZeR) project. The purpose of the stydy is to show the advantages of nearly zero-energy building renovation (NZEBR) over the traditional renovation alternative,both from technical and social point of view, in the project's partner countries (Finland, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, and Sweden). The main technical indicators of these two renovation alternatives for the selected reference buildings have been calculated and analysed.
The study evaluates and analyses the potential to achieve NZEBR and deploy renewable energy sources in the partner cities for the identified residential typologies, as well as the related social aspects. The feasibility study is focused on the NZEBR alternative, as traditional renovation is supposed to be rather standard and low-risk.
The results of this analysis show that the technical and social feasibility of the NZEBR alternative is relatively good in each partner country; the risks introduced by the implementation of specific measures are in managable levels. The main NZEBR advantages over the traditional renovation alternative could be accounted through the level of energy savings, the reducing of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the increasing of indoor comfort.
