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.

The online check will calculate for different buildings types the potential energy savings and gives advice with which measures the heating saving goal can be achieved. High energy prices are more and more demanding to the consumers. Costs for space heating and domestic hot water have nearly doubled in the last 10 years. A holistic energy efficiency retrofit can lead to up to 85 % energy savings. A more detailed building analysis can be realised by an energy consultancy which is partly sponsored by the German bank of the Federal State.

The output - compiled with the collaboration of key target groups - is a set of guidelines with a methodology which clarifies the various aspects of the LCA, e.g., purpose, benefits, requirements, flexibility and different techniques. This is applied to real buildings by a number of collaborating target groups. The results are disseminated to a wide target group through multiple channels and the potential for energy saving highlighted. Through this project tools for use in an integral planning process are

The German SurPlusHouse includes photovoltaic on all walls (also on the north side as a system was chosen that can produce electricity from diffuse radiation as well) and a heat pump for heating, domestic hot water and cooling. The building is very compact and results therefore and because of the vacuum insulation in very low transmission losses.

The conference was organised by the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre of the International Energy Agency together with Energie- und Umweltzentrum am Deister (E-U-Z) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics. In parallel to the AIVC conference the international symposium on "Airtightness of Buildings and Ductworks" took place accompanied by an exhibition of industry developments in this field. The conference papers will be offered soon for download on the AIVC website (http://www.aivc.org/).
