The GBPN is hosting a series of four webinars on “how to” implement a successful policy package that targets energy renovations for residential buildings based on the findings from the recently launched Policy Tool for Renovation.

Webinar #1 will focus on the overall performance of current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings.

Which countries or states have been successful in reducing the energy consumption of their residential building stock in the past ten years? What can other jurisdictions learn from their experience? What are the key factors that were significant in driving change? Front-runners from Europe and the United States identified through the GBPN analysis will provide insights into “how to” introduce and develop a best practice policy package that contributes to realising a reduction in energy consumption of the residential building stock.


Webinar organised in partnership with the Clean Energy Solutions Center

Energy renovation policy has only recently come onto the political agenda and is an emerging field. The Policy Tool for Renovation compares and analyses twelve current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings from Europe and the United States, using fourteen criteria that define a “state of the art” policy package. The Tool shows where positive steps have been taken, where other jurisdictions can learn from these actions and where there is scope for further progress to help countries and region to reduce the consumption of their building stock.

This target is set based on the energy consumption after the renovation and this needs to be below a certain threshold (i.e. reduction in energy consumed). All buildings will have the same standard after the renovation. Targets would be given in kWh / m2/yr (EU) and KBtu/ft2/yr (US) after renovation. [Source: GBPN, 2012]

Deep Renovation or Deep Energy Renovation is a term for a building renovation that captures the full economic energy efficiency potential of improvements. This typically includes a focus on the building shell of existing buildings in order to achieve very high-energy performance. The renovated building consumes 75% less primary energy compared to the status of the existing building before the renovation. The energy consumption after renovation for heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting, is less than 60 kWh/m2/yr. (Definition often used in Europe) [Source: GBPN, 2012]
