Project

Case studies on Sustainable Renovation in Eastern and Northern Europe (Kestävän korjaamisen periaatteita Itä-ja Pohjois-Euroopassa) - RESPIRE

is a project running under TEKES’s Kestävä yhdyskunta program, and it is a part of the umbrella project

"Integrated strategies and policy instruments for retrofitting buildings to reduce primary energy use and GHG emissions"

of ERACOBUILD's Sustainable Renovation program.



The goal of RESPIRE is to adapt the renovation experience of prefabricatedStrategies for cost-optimal energy efficient and sustainable building retrofitsStrategies for cost-optimal energy efficient and sustainable building retrofitsStrategies for cost-optimal energy efficient and sustainable building retrofitsStrategies for cost-optimal energy efficient and sustainable building retrofitsStrategies for cost-optimal energy efficient and sustainable building retrofits concrete residential buildings in Finland to Eastern European countries, with focus on technological, economic, institutional and policy settings.

Prefabricated concrete residential buildings present the largest retrofitting challenge in Eastern European countries; and one of the best opportunities to substantially improve energy efficiency of residential buildings on the large scale in the EU. The opportunity should not be missed to carry out these retrofits in a truly sustainable way.

The project has the following focus areas:
  1. Inventory of building typologies 
  2. Design practices in Romania 
  3. Renovation experience in Finland
  4. Technology overview
  5.  Retrofit market in Romania and Eastern European countries
  6.  Business models for sustainable retrofitting
  7.  Implementation of technology
  8.  Detailed analysis of case studies
