An important part of the energy efficiency improvement potential lies in the existing residential building stock. If we are to achieve significant reductions of energy use in existing buildings, it is important to perform future large-scale retrofitting of buildings in a systematic and controlled manner. When retrofitting a building many aspects must be taken into account and a quality assurance (QA) system can be a helpful tool in this process. To achieve effective routines during the management stage is also important.

This tool calculates characteristic indicators for the construction, such as linear (or point) thermal transmittance or the matrix of thermal coupling coefficients (i.e. boundary conditions independent results).
AnTherm facilitates generation of geometrical models through a graphic input display of building structures, as well as by providing very fast, fully automated generation and precise solution of the underlying numerical model. AnTherm allows the user to control the precision of numerical solutions through parameters.

provides totally new capabilities for evaluating building envelope elements or even whole buildings with particular attention to thermal bridges and (optionally) vapour diffusion. It provides modern three dimensional visualization functionality speeding up the complex evaluation process in terms of qualitative research followed by quantitative (numerical) analysis of results.

The BEST RESULT project aims to develop a working strategy to extend
the market of small scale RES applications in the building and energy
sector through common and local activities addressing RES suppliers and
consumers. All activities are aimed at opening new market opportunities
and raising suppliers’ awareness and knowledge of RES applications by
providing information and suggestions on how to improve their
positioning inside the market. Information and communication activities
targeting the general public or specific groups of consumers will
