The project 3ENCULT bridges the gap between conservation of historic buildings and climate protection, which is not an antagonism at all: historic buildings will only survive if maintained as living space. Energy efficient retrofit is useful for structural protection as well as for comfort reasons - comfort for users and “comfort” for heritage collections. 3ENCULT will demonstrate the feasibility of “Factor 4” to “Factor 10” reduction in energy demand, depending on the case and the heritage value.

3ENCULT explores the possibilities of this integration. Currently, most EPBD requirements exclude formally listed historic buildings. Evidently, conservation aspects make it less evident to demand energy efficiency targets when historic buildings undergo major renovation. But there are thinkable alternatives which encourage the choice for energy saving measures, without asking for the impossible.

Schloss Retzhof is a hotel and conference center which had three different construction periods (16th c.,1960, 2009). The three buildings were supplied by a heating network; with a total heating area 4.000 m2.The initial situation: inefficient natural gas boiler, high energy cost. No insulation of building envelope (protection of historic monument). Energy consumption ratio ~ 185 kWh/m2/year. Demolition of boiler house to make room for new guest house.Goals of building owner:
