Sometimes seen as highly energy-consuming buildings, shopping centres have though the potential to be energy efficient and reach the environmental and energy goals of the EU. The retail industry’s size, reach and impact have a great deal of potential which can be exploited in order to make a difference and transform shopping centres into best-practice cases for sustainability. The EU-funded project, CommONEnergy seized the challenge to help re-conceptualising these peculiar, complex buildings and turn them into beacons of energy efficiency.

Non-residential building use/type includes wholesale and trade, offices, hotels and restaurants, health, education and other buildings.

CommONEnergy focuses on existing shopping malls to be refurbished and buildings with a different original function, redesigned to become shopping malls. Wholesales and Retail buildings represent 28% of the total non-residential ones (BPIE, 2010), accounting for approximately 157 Mtoe in 2005 (EU EEAP). Considering typical shopping malls high impact on modern society (ICSC, 2008), the project addresses their transformation as lighthouses of energy efficient architectures and systems as well as assessment transparency.
