The primary intent of this research project is to review the current state of knowledge and risks relating to the deep energy renovation of traditional buildings, which have different hygroscopic and thermal behaviors to buildings of modern construction, and which represent approximately 16% of the total housing stock in Ireland. One of the key characteristics of traditional buildings is that they are constructed of solid masonry walls that are ‘breathable’, i.e. the building fabric allows moisture to be absorbed and released cyclically.

In April last year, the City of Ljubljana agreed a public-private partnership (PPP) with a consortium of GGE and Petrol for the energy retrofitting of public buildings in the municipality. The EUR 14.9 million project will deliver energy savings of 8,245 MWh annually and a reduction of 2,956 tons of CO2 emissions each year.

This guide shows how to identify measures where energy and cost savings can be easily made with little or no cost. It is designed for use by anyone new to carbon saving (especially in smaller businesses) and recognises that not everyone has the time or resources to undertake a full carbon management programme. This guide can be used on its own or as an introduction to the many sector and technology specific publications in the Carbon Trust’s library.

Modelling scenarios for development of the energy system is highly dependent on the assumptions. An essential input to any modelling exercise are assumptions about the development of technologies - both in terms of performance and costs. While these assumptions have been traditionally developed by the modelling consultants, based on a broad and rigorous literature review, the Commission is increasingly seeking a review of these technologies by stakeholders to make them even more robust and representative of the current projects as well as experts’ and stakeholders’ expectations.

As of 1 September 2018 energy intensive and inefficient halogen lightbulbs will no longer be sold across the European Union. As a result of these rules, European consumers will be able to save on their household bills and, by addressing this at EU level, this will mean significant EU-wide energy savings – equivalent to the electricity consumption of Portugal over 5 years.
