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.

Το Εργαλείο Οικονομικής Αξιολόγησης (CERtuS SE²T) αναπτύχθηκε στο πλαίσιο του προγράμματος CERtuS . Είναι ένα φιλικό στη χρήση του και κατατοπιστικό εργαλείο πάνω σε ζητήματα χρηματοδότησης, το οποίο απευθύνεται κυρίως στις αρχές τοπικής αυτοδιοίκησης καθώς επίσης και σε ιδιοκτήτες κτιρίων οι οποίοι επιθυμούν να ανακαινίσουν ενεργειακά το κτίριό τους εκ βαθέων, προκειμένου αυτά να χαρακτηριστούν κτίρια σχεδόν μηδενικής ενεργειακής κατανάλωσης (ΣΜΕΚ).

The Simplified Economic Evaluation Tool (CERtuS SE²T) has been developed under the CERtuS Project. It is a user-friendly and informative tool on financing issues, addressed principally to Municipalities but also to building owners that wish to implement a deep energy renovation on their buildings, in order for the latter to become nZEB. The CERtuS SE²T tool is used in the initial stages of a building retrofit project in order to evaluate the project's financial sustainability.

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).
