The Monument Information System is based on the “Raumbuch” (roombook) is presented on this poster. It is an inventory documentation tool that enables the structured documentation on urban and building level down to the single room. Thus users can “move” through the building on different levels of detail. To support a constructive discussion across all disciplines involved in preserving the heritage information of the objects is cross-linked to energy issues.

Through implementation of high quality energy efficiency solutions a remarkable reduction in the energy demand of historic buildings is achievable. Those solutions have to be very specifically targeted and adapted to the particular building case. An important basis for this approach is an experienced multi-disciplinary team which guarantees a failure free implementation.

IntroductionWhere space is limited and invasive interventions have to be avoided – be it historic buildings in particular or refurbishment projects in general – particular awareness and special solutions for HVAC systems are needed. Within FP7 project 3ENCULT a number of such solutions have been developed and tested at case studies. Values and potential in historic buildings

The Transnational Feasibility Study (TFS) explores the technological, financial, environmental and institutional aspects of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RES) based solutions in heating public and in particular, historic buildings. Findings in regards to possible interventions on increasing RES and EE while reducing energy waste are compiled in this main output and linked to the other results of the project.
