Workshop IEA SHC Task 47: Retrofit of Non-Residential Buildings
September 7, 2012 - Brussels, Belgium
Exemplary renovation projects have demonstrated that total primary energy consumption can be drastically reduced while also improving building’s the indoor climate. However, the experiences gained from these projects have not been systematically analyzed to make them a reliable resource for planners. Because most property owners are not even aware that such savings are possible, they set energy targets that are too conservative. And, buildings renovated to mediocre performance can be a lost opportunity for decades. It is essential that building owners be aware of the successes and set ambitious targets. The aim of this symposium is to show some exemplary renovation projects in the participating countries of task 47.
