Energy Exploitation and Performance Contracting for Low Income and Social Housing
December 2006 - November 2009
Cauberg-Huygen Raadgevende Ingenieurs bv, Netherlands
Promotion of energy efficiency in the existing low income and social housing faces a large number of barriers. At the same time this stock is characterised by high energy use, due to poor energy efficiency of heating installations and poor thermal insulation, poor thermal comfort and indoor air quality. Major barrier is the lack of financial means as well as with owners as housing corporations. Private organised Energy Exploitation and Energy Performance Contracting are potential solutions for this problem.
