The German Federal Association of Housing and Real Estate Companies (GdW) has claimed that money and effort spent on the nation’s buildings renovations have not worked. But Andreas Rüdinger at IDDRI has looked into the evidence and concluded that the opposite is the case. CO2 emissions from the residential sector in 2018 were 37% lower than in 1990. Though final energy consumption was broadly stable, that’s because efficiency gains were offset by an increase in the residential building stock. But the calculations per square metre show a significant decline.

Our 2021 Spring Edition of the FEDARENE Info is out!   This season, we focus on District Heating and Cooling – a sector that could become one of the most important contributors to the EU Green Deal and Energy Transition. Heating and cooling drives half of the energy consumption in Europe. However, more than two thirds of demand is met with fossil fuels. Changing the conventional fossil paradigm in heating and cooling is essential for reaching the EU decarbonisation goals.

The former fire station is a listed building, which was built in 1926 by architect Franz Baumgartner in the style of the architecture at the lake Wörther See. It is now used as a music school. The building is characterised by its strongly articulated gates on the main street façade. The large roof area is broken up by an enormous front gable. The building comprises two full floors, an attic, a partial basement and a turret room. The market town of Velden am Wörthersee implemented a comprehensive thermal-energetic renovation of the building.

During building design and construction phases, workers have many priorities to consider from start to finish. It’s essential to use proper rain and runoff management techniques to avoid floods, prevent erosion and more. Everything built without such precautions will experience structural damage.

by Mark Douglas Wessel   In principle, the idea of retrofitting homes to net zero sounds appealing enough. But the cost of implementing deep energy upgrades that might cost 45-60,000 Euro per home has long been a non-starter whether you’re an individual homeowner at one end of the scale… or manage thousands of rental units at the other. At either end of the spectrum, the potential long-term energy savings are often trumped by the up-front costs.
