The following tool has been developed in the frame of the A2PBEER project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.

In the publications most of the projects reports (best practices, financial assessment,strategies for energy efficient retrofitting,etc.) are available.

In Europe, buildings consume about 40% of total final energy and are responsible for 36% of co2 emissions since 1990, and those buildings built before 1980 represent 95% of this energy consumption. The low renovation rate of building stock since 1990 (1% per year) means that boosting energy efficient buildings’ retrofitting is the only way to reach EU’s “20-20-20” targets. A higher impact will be achieved through interventions in non-residential buildings, as their energy consumption is 40% higher than in residential buildings. Public buildings represent more than 30% of the non-residential buildings in the EU.
