Overheating risk mapping

This leaflet, released by the Zero Carbon Hub, introduces current research and risk mapping methods, including outcomes presented at a city or regional level, and a national level. It is based on work carried out by the Zero Carbon Hub over the past two years as part of a large-scale project on ‘Overheating in Homes’, and specifically draws on the detailed evidence review, ‘Overheating Risk Mapping’, prepared by AECOM for the Zero Carbon Hub.

Impacts of overheating in homes

This leaflet, released by the Zero Carbon Hub, is intended for housing providers and building professionals. The document highlights and summarises some of the key impacts of overheating in homes. It is based on work carried out by the Zero Carbon Hub over the past two years as part of a large-scale project on ‘Overheating in Homes’, and draws specifically on a detailed evidence review of the ‘Impacts of Overheating’ prepared by AECOM for the Zero Carbon Hub.


UK Government aid for households undertaking energy efficiency measures falls

A new research, conducted by the Association for the Conservation of Energy (ACE), has revealed a significant fall, since 2012, in the number of UK households receiving government aid to improve their energy use. Figures show a 75 per cent reduction following cuts to government programmes aimed at making homes warmer and cheaper to heat. More specifically, the number of efficiency measures installed through government-backed schemes fell from 1.7 million a year in 2012 to 340,000 now.

Tackling energy efficiency in multi-occupancy apartment blocks
Tuesday, 8 March 2016
With 43% of Europeans living in apartments, improving the energy efficiency of these properties is critical to achieving Europe’s energy and carbon reduction targets. Yet retrofitting these properties is notoriously challenging, particularly when they are under multiple ownership. Difficulties include the identification of appropriate measures, engaging multiple stakeholders, securing finance and decision-making.

Trade Energy Management. Energy-efficiency Potential in German Retail Buildings

The study of the EHI Retail Institute performed for the German Energy Agency dena contributes to the information and data basis on the energy use and energy saving potential of retail buildings in Germany. It further examines the results of the previous study “Energy Efficiency in Retail. Analysis of Existing Buildings and their Energy Situation” dated June 2015.

Study on retail energy costs shows great savings potential for small grocery stores

A recently released EHI Retail Institute study conducted on behalf of the German Energy Agency (dena) shows that within the food industry, annual energy costs for smaller shops and specialist stores premises amount to about 74 euros per square metre, on average. At the same time annual electricity and heating bills for larger chain stores and grocery chains sum up to about 57 euros per square metre.


Studie zu Energiekosten im Einzelhandel zeigt großes Einsparpotenzial bei kleinen Lebensmittelgeschäften

Eine Studie im Auftrag der Deutschen Energie Agentur (dena) zum Energieverbrauch von deutschen Lebensmittelgeschäften ergab für kleinere Läden und Fachgeschäfte mittlere Energiekosten von 74 € pro Quadratmeter Verkehrsfläche und Jahr. Bei größeren Filialen und Lebensmittelketten betragen die mittleren Energiekosten nur 57 €/m²a. Der Unterschied in den Kosten ist u.a. durch ein professionelles Energiemanagement und geringere Kosten für Energieeinkauf und Energieerzeugung bei Lebensmittelketten bedingt.

Energiemanagement im Handel: Energieeffizienzpotenziale in den Gebäuden des deutschen Einzelhandels

Die Studie des EHI Retail Institute im Auftrag der Deutschen Energie Agentur dena trägt zur Informations- und Datenbasis zum Energieverbrauch und Energieeinsparpotenzial im Einzelhandel in Deutschland bei. Sie knüpft an die Vorstudie Vorstudie „Energieeffizienz im Einzelhandel. Analyse des Gebäudebestands und seiner energetischen Situation“ aus dem Juni 2015 an.
