Die energetische Sanierung des Gebäudebestandes stellt einen wesentlichen Baustein der Energiewende dar. Die Gebäudehülle und die Anlagentechnik, die im Gebäude eingesetzt wird, bilden eine Einheit und sollten vor einer Gebäudesanierung grundsätzlich gemeinsam analysiert werden. In dieser Publikation soll dennoch nur die Gebäudehülle behandelt werden, der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der Wärmedämmung. Die Autoren nehmen zu den häufigsten Einwänden, Vorurteilen und Missverständnissen zum baulichen Wärmeschutz und dem Einsatz von Dämmstoffen Stellung.

Energy efficiency regulations for buildings often focus solely on operational and thermal energy demands. Increasing a building׳s thermal energy efficiency is most often undertaken by increasing insulation thickness and installing high performance windows. These measures can result in a significant increase in embodied energy which is currently not considered in the majority of existing building energy regulations.

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.

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.
