Subtask A: Methodology


To achieve these objectives, Subtask A is divided in four work packages:

Work packages (WP):
WP A1: Methodological Guidelines and National Framework Conditions
The goal of this WP is the development of the methodology for the assessment of building renovation as well as for the derivation of target values for energy and carbon emissions optimized building renovation;
WP A2: Cost optimization with respect to varying energy and carbon emissions reduction targets
The goals are the assessment of renovation strategies to determine cost effective combinations of renovation measures which optimize energy and carbon emissions savings as well as to evaluate the trade-offs between energy and carbon emissions reduction measures in the case of building renovation;
WP A3: Primary energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions with LC-approach
The goal is to define a flexible methodology that allows to assess the primary energy consumed and the greenhouse gas emissions of renovated buildings. The methodology will be based on the state of the art of LCIA approaches  for buildings;
WP A4: Co-Benefits of Renovation Measures
The goal of this WP is the identification of relevant co-benefits related to building renovation and to demonstrate how such co-benefits can be integrated into decision making in the case of building renovation.

Leader: Walter Ott, econcept, Switzerland
Co-leader: Manuela Almeida, University of Minho, Portugal

Subtask B: Tools


Work packages (WP):
WP B1: User requirements and needs and tools overview
The main goal of this WP is to get a clear overview of the needs and requirements of the different target groups taking into consideration the developed methodology, and further to clarify to what extent these needs are already covered by existing tools.
WP B2: Building Information Models and data bases
The goal is to explore the possibility of integrating modules with innovative renovation measures in existing BIM tools;
WP B3: Tools development
The main objective of thus WP is to develop new tools and add-ons to existing ones to fulfil the identified needs and requirements. The main issue will be to support the economic evaluation of energy and carbon emissions optimized building renovation as well as deal with added value related issues;
WP B4: Renovation Portal with guidelines for different user groups
The goal is to create a renovation portal where different users can find targeted information on how the different measures contribute to energy savings and GHG reductions.

Leader: Guri Krigsvoll, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Norway
Co-leader: Piercarlo Romagnoni, University of Venice, Italy

Subtask C: Case-Studies


Work packages (WP):
WP C1: Case Studies I - “Shining Examples”
The goal if this WP is the publication of a series of successful realized demonstration projects within all Annex 56 partner countries that will highlight successful solutions and provide general findings, similarities and differences emerging out of the demonstration projects from the different countries;
WP C2: Case Studies II – “Detailed Case Studies”
The objective is to perform a deeper analysis of selected case studies in order to validate the theoretically developed methodology based on generic data with data and experiences from practice;
WP C3: Reporting
The goal is to obtain an optimized and target group oriented publication of the results of Subtask C (the successful demonstration projects) in order to contribute to the overall Annex 56 dissemination strategy.

Leader: Karl Hofler, AEE - Institute for Sustainable Technologies (AEE INTEC), Austria
Co-leader: Ove Mørck, Cenergia Energy Consultants, Denmark

Subtask D: User Acceptance and Dissemination


To achieve these objectives, Subtask D is divided int two work packages:

Work packages (WP):
WP D1: User Acceptance
The goal of this WP is to characterize and understand the acceptance, motivation, needs, obstacles and drivers of the chosen target groups to the renovation process;
WP D2: Dissemination
The objective is to disseminate the Annex outputs among key stakeholders since the beginning of the project.

Leader: Rui Fragoso, Portuguese Energy Agency, Portugal
