Are you planning to renovate a building? Would you like to combine energy efficiency improvements with architectural additions? The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose which you can test for free.
Case study buildings should either have planned energy renovations or have already undergone renovations. Tools and analytical methods developed by the project team will be applied to each case study building, providing valuable technical, financial and regulatory outcomes to aid the decision-making process.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with the aim to create more transparency about the energy performance of individual buildings. To date, the implementation of this instrument varies significantly across Europe in terms of scope, information, comparability and user-friendliness, limiting its acceptance by users as well as its market penetration.

The EnergySavingCheck 3.0 is a calculation tool developed to estimate a household’s energy and water consumption and savings. It was first introduced by Caritasverband Frankfurt e.V, Germany for the EU-funded project ACHIEVE and it is based on the calculation tool of the Cariteam Energiesparservice. Later, it was appropriately adjusted by the Energy Agency of Plovdiv, Bulgaria and the Focus Association for Sustainable Development, Slovenia for the needs and purposes of the REACH project, another EU-funded project.

Training of Photovoltaic Installers
The high photovoltaic market growth rates, further favoured by the EU supporting policies and the favourable national regulatory frameworks, may cause some concern to the PV industry due to the lack of adequately skilled workforce for PV installation and maintenance. Furthermore, the interested parties (manufacturers, developers, investors) seek skills certification and quality assurance in all phases of a PV installation (design, installation and maintenance).
