IEE LEAF

Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) was a three year project that looked to improve the energy efficiency of multi-occupancy apartment blocks by overcoming the barriers experienced during the retrofit process. The project ran from March 2013 to March 2016 and was funded by the EU’s Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme and local organisations in each country.

Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) was a three year project that looked to improve the energy efficiency of multi-occupancy apartment blocks by overcoming the barriers experienced during the retrofit process. Retrofit of this type of building is essential to meet climate change targets and reduce fuel poverty as approximately 43% of Europeans live in flats[1]. However, this type of building is notoriously difficult to retrofit due to short-comings of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and the challenges of engaging multiple owners.

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.

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:

The Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) project developed a set of resources to support stakeholders such as building managers, housing associations, local authorities/municipalities, energy agencies, charities, residents’ associations and private landlords to improve the energy efficiency of apartment blocks. This set consists of a technical toolkit and an engagement toolkit, designed to be used together as a step-by-step guide to retrofit.   The Technical Toolkit

Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) is a European-wide project aiming to improve the energy efficiency of apartment blocks by overcoming a number of key barriers to retrofitting these properties, such as the limitations of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), as well as the difficulties associated with buildings under multiple ownership.

With rising energy prices and international efforts to tackle climate change, improving the energy efficiency of homes is increasingly important across Europe. Energy use in homes makes up a quarter of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and the EU has committed to a 20% reduction in EU greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 from 1990 levels. Furthermore, 9.8% of households in Europe cannot afford to heat their home adequately.
