This scheme is now closed.   “RYŚ” programme – Grants for thermo-renovation of single-family residential buildings in Poland   The “RYŚ” programme is administered by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management WFOŚiGW. The fund was initiated in 2015 and is due to continue until 2023 with a total budget of €95M, that includes €29M for non-refundable forms of support.

This guide outlines key construction details when building a new home (commonly identified as requiring further guidance during multiple site inspections) as well as good practice for delivering them. Overall, the book aims to improve the quality of new homes built, focusing on comfort levels and energy bills and assists builders improve site processes to deliver better performing homes and reduce the risk of condensation and mould growth, excessive heat loss and failure to meet building regulations.

This study gives a detailed overview of Greenlandic residential buildings from 1957-1963 and describes their condition based on extensive measurements (blower door, thermography, indoor air quality measurements, etc.). The study - conducted for the four most common types of standard houses in Sisimiut, Greenland - found the standard houses in a poor condition, even though they had all to some extent been renovated. The blower door tests showed that the air change rate of the houses were much larger than the limit for new buildings.

The Spanish consortium Construye - partner in the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) Buildup Skills Project - developed an application for the training of construction workforce.   The application displays in an educational way five thematic modules in respect to energy renovation activities in buildings by using exercises with interactive navigation, animations and simulations. The five sections are the following:

Most German homeowners focus on individual energy efficiency refurbishment measures instead of carrying out a complete refurbishment. The German Energy Agency (dena) analysed which of these measures were implemented in 2014, based on an evaluation of funding statistics from the state-run development bank KfW. The first most frequently supported individual measure was the replacement of heating systems; In 2014, KfW subsidised roughly 56,500 new condensing boilers, heat pumps, solar thermal systems, pellet heaters or other efficient heating technologies.

Current energy conservation standards often call for space saving insulation technologies, especially for building refurbishment. Therefore, new super insulating materials (SIM), such as types of vacuum insulation panels (VIP), gas filled panels (GFP) and aerogel based products (ABP) have been rapidly spreading in the building insulation market.

NanoInsulate will develop durable, robust, cost-effective opaque and transparent vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) incorporating new nanotechnology-based core materials (such as nanofoams, aerogels and aerogel composites) and high-barrier films, that are up to six times more energy efficient than current solutions.These new systems will provide a product lifetime in excess of 50 years suitable for a variety of new-build and retrofit building applications. Robustness (resistance to physical and climatic damage) is key in these applications.
