Tor Broström participates in the first International Energy Agency Task 59 : DEEP RENOVATION OF HISTORIC BUILDINGS TOWARDS LOWEST POSSIBLE ENERGY DEMAND AND CO2 EMISSION (NZEB). The meeting takes place in Edinburgh
The Objectives of the Task are to
- Develop a solid knowledge base on how to save energy by refurbishing historic buildings in a cost-efficient way.
- Identify the energy saving potential for historic buildings according to building typologies (residential, administrative, cultural…)
- Identify and assess replicable procedures on how experts can work together to produce integrated designs which retain the values of the historic building whilst improving its energy performance significantly
- Identify and advance tools which support these procedures and their single steps
- Identify and assess conservation-compatible retrofit strategies using a “whole building approach”
- Identify specifically the potential for the use of solar energy (passive and active, heating, cooling and electricity) and promote best practice applications
- Transfer knowledge.
