Internet-Based Value-Added Calculator for Energy-Saving Building Refurbishment

The economic effects of energy efficiency measures and especially those of energy-saving building refurbishment are barely mentioned in regional energy concepts. In view of this fact the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety assigned a research project to calculate these economic effects. This project revealed specific value-added and employment effects for the energy-saving building refurbishment measures for single- and multi-family houses as well as for office buildings. A specific preparation of these findings for the target audience of manufacturers and architects did not follow until today. The internet-based calculator shall enable municipalities and other interested parties to estimate the economic effects of energy-saving building refurbishments for their municipalities or regions.

The project is funded by the National Climate Protection Initiative (funding number 03KF0033A). For further infomation see webpages of BMBU and PTJ.
