The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

A large number of modern European buildings are equipped with ducted air distribution systems. Because they represent a key parameter for achieving a good indoor climate, increased attention has been given to their performance during the past fifty years. One aspect that is particularly developed in this handbook concerns the airtightness of the ductwork, which has been identified as a major source of inadequate functioning and energy wastage of HVAC systems.

This CECODHAS-Housing Europe led initiative is supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme now has an official on-line home at www.powerhouseeurope.eu. The new site provides space for organizations to upload case studies and an on-line forum to allow them to get in touch directly with others or to share views. There is also a selection of tools, guidebooks and case studies aimed at helping organizations to develop their energy strategy in the resource section of the site.

Refurbishments should also be cost-effective - many of CECODHAS-Housing Europe members have raised concerns about studies which maintain that investments can always be recovered in the short term through reductions in energy bills alone, while in reality, without proper funding optimal refurbishment cannot be carried out.

The EU wishes to better tap the possibilities and potentials of energy services in the future and has therefore brought to life the European Energy Service Initiative in 2009. Considering the depletion of non-renewable resources and global climate change, new solutions for energy supply become increasingly important. Energy service companies (ESCOs) in Europe are already showing that energy efficiency and profitability do not contravene. Innovative Energy Performance Contracts can reduce energy consumption of buildings by 25 percent and more.
