Deep Renovation

29-03-2013 | Global全球South-East AsiaSouth-East Asia

The GBPN promotes a “deep” renovation of the existing building stock to help the building sector achieve significant global energy savings and plays its role in mitigating climate change. However, what does “deep” renovation mean? Do experts around the world use the same definition? This recent report “What is a Deep Renovation” seeks to harmonise and clarify a definition for deep renovation to help building a global knowledge dialogue and facilitate best practice sharing than can support better policy-making.

随着中国经济的快速增长,中国的建筑业也经历着前所未有的飞速发展。建筑物的能源使用直接影响着中国的温室气体(GHG)排放。GBPN与中国可持续能源项目(CSEP)就若干专项研究进行合作,以帮助决策者制定建筑能效方面的“一揽子”政策,用以提高中国新建和既有建筑的能效性能,并控制建筑物用能产生的CO2排放增长趋势。

What is a “deep” renovation? The GBPN convened collaborators on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world in order to formulate coherent definitions. Together we reached a general understanding on the most commonly used expressions: deep renovation and deep retrofit.

Buildings represent around a third of the total global energy use and the energy-related CO2 emissions, existing buildings account for a major part of this consumption, especially in developed countries. Therefore a critical pathway to reach policy targets for energy efficiency in the existing building stock is through Deep Energy Renovations.

Definition of DR

gbpn_admin's picture

The GBPN found that there was a lack of a commonly agreed definition for deep renovation, additionally, there are a variety of terminologies in use by different regions. The definitions most commonly found globally are: deep renovation, deep retrofit and deep refurbishment.

The largest differences in definition occurred in the EU and the US.  The GBPN found that confusions arising in defining a deep renovation hinder the uptake and demand for these deep energy improvements. Therefore, GBPN’s goal was to establish a clear and harmonised definition for deep renovation.
