IEE project LEAF presents technical toolkit for energy saving measures at apartment blocks in multi-ownership

Energy efficient renovations of apartment blocks in multi-ownership are difficult to realise, mostly because of difficult decision taking and other legal and financial boundaries. The LEAF Technical Toolkit enables organisations to identify and understand appropriate energy improvements for apartment blocks. This includes estimated costs and savings from measures, and potential subsidies. It also contains advice on the impact of resident behaviour, and how energy saving behaviour can be promoted.

The technical toolkit offers guidance on the following topics:
