Understanding and overcoming non-technological barriers in energy efficient renovation at district level

The greatest barriers to the wide market deployment of energy retrofitting in Europe are of non-technological nature, namely financial, organisational, legal, social and cultural barriers. 

CITyFiED Model for selection of energy retrofitting strategies at district level

Assessing energy efficiency and renovation scenarios at district level: a simple framework for success

CITyFiED Methodology for sustainable urban renovation at district level

Methodology for city renovation at district level: innovative, integrated and open methodology for sustainable renovation of existing residential districts

CITyFiED Monitoring Platform and visualisation tools

Three local monitoring platforms have been developed and deployed at home, building and district level, which allow to store data and measure the impacts of the project in relation to different energy variables, environment, economic performance and social acceptance.

CITyFiED Methodology for Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) systems for residential buildings

CITyFiED has enabled an extensive implementation of a novel technology that makes possible to use low-temperature energy sources for heating living spaces.

CITyFiED Plan for replication of district energy retrofitting

Replication plan – a handbook for applying sustainable retrofitting strategies at district level, maximizing the replication potential of CITyFiED

Business models for energy retrofitting at district level

Analysis of Member States' rules for allocating heating, cooling and hot water costs in multiapartment/purpose buildings supplied from collective systems

Energy savings achieved through the improvement of metering and billing of individual consumption of heating/cooling and domestic hot water in multi-apartment and multi-purpose buildings can make a contribution to the scaling up of efforts to achieve the energy efficiency targets of the EU in 2020 and beyond.

The IEA Energy Efficiency Indicators Database

Having reliable data and indicators on how energy is used is key to informing and monitoring the effectiveness of energy efficiency policies. Highlighting the importance of such data, the IEA has for the first time published an Energy Efficiency Indicators database with annual data from 2000 to 2015.

A smarter way to delivering large-scale change: the CITyFiED Methodology for Sustainable Urban Renovation at district level

Sustainable urban renovation is complex, particularly with respect to the decision making process, where a number of key stakeholders and several aspects need to be considered simultaneously. Evaluating and selecting alternative scenarios or measures to be implemented can be a substantial use of time and resources for cities. 

Good practice in energy efficiency

For a sustainable, safer and more competitive Europe

Methodology Applied to the Evaluation of Natural Ventilation in Residential Building Retrofits: A Case Study

The primary objective of this paper is to present the use of a steady model that is able to qualify and quantify available natural ventilation flows applied to the energy retrofitting of urban residential districts. In terms of air quality, natural ventilation presents more efficient solutions compared to active systems. 

Energy efficiency a route to a competitive and climate conscious world

If energy efficiency rules and eco-design product standards were harmonised across the globe, the savings in energy and greenhouse gas emissions would be enormous, a new European Commission study has found. Up to 7,600 TWh of electricity would be saved by 2030 – a 13% reduction on the business as usual scenario

Renovation in Practice

IEA Energy Efficiency Market Report 2015

A new International Energy Agency (IEA) book Energy Efficiency Market Report 2015 reveals that energy efficiency improvements since 1990 in IEA member countries avoided 870 million tonnes of CO2 emissions in 2014 – and a cumulative 10 billion tonnes over the last 25 years, roughly equivalent to current annual emissions by all IEA member countries
