PROtect traditional built HERITAGE Skills – PRO-Heritage According to the climate change and energy policy of the EU, each member state needed to identify and develop a series of energy efficient goals and regulations, of which buildings are a key element, in order to reach the set goals. However, Europe has numerous historic buildings, which need permanent maintenance and refurbishment in order to fulfil the requirements of sustainability and use.

Improving the energy efficiency of heritage buildings is one of the priorities of the European Commission. Historical buildings play an important role for their cultural value and social identity within the vast real estate heritage. Only by carefully planning the energy refurbishment of these buildings is it possible to improve users’ comfort while preserving the architectural features for which they are protected.

USEF was founded in 2014 by seven key players, active across the smart energy industry. It grew out of the Smart Energy Collective (SEC), a Dutch multi-partner collaboration, developing smart energy technologies and services and bringing them together into five large-scale smart energy pilot projects. This work demonstrated an urgent need for a common standard for smart energy development to ensure  interconnectivity in a future integrated market.

ENERFUND is a tool that rates and scores deep renovation opportunities. The tool is based on a set of parameters such as the Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) rating, year of construction of the building, cost of retrofitting in the said area, and others. During this workshop, the step by step process of how a user can filter and select buildings within the ENERFUND database will be shown.
