When buildings are renovated the energetic targets are usually kept to the minimum requirements resulting in a reduction of energy use in typical retrofit projects between 10 and 20%. Considered from the perspective of a life cycle of a typical building, this approach is a "lost opportunity." Recent research from actual executed energy projects around the globe shows that energy reduction can exceed 50%, and that renovated buildings can cost effectively achieve the passive house standard or even approach a net zero energy status.

The Forum will include presentations addressing the following topics:

  • Energy requirements with major renovation projects
  • What is Deep Energy Retrofit and what does it mean for different building types, usages, climates and economic framework
  • Deep Energy Retrofit case studies from around the globe
  • Core technologies bundle to achieve Deep Energy Retrofit
  • How can quality assurance be achieved
  • Economics of Deep Energy Retrofit
  • With which business and financial models for Deep Energy Retrofit projects can be carried out cost effectively
