IEA-EBC Annex 55: Reliability of Energy Efficient Building Retrofitting - Probability Assessment of Performance & Cost (RAP-RETRO)
The ultimate outcome of the project will be to develop knowledge and tools that support the use of probability based design strategies in retrofitting of buildings to ensure that the anticipated energy benefits can be realized. These will give reliable information about the true outcome of retrofitting measures regarding energy use, cost and functional performance.
The principle objective will hence be realized by merging hygrothermal building physics with probability and economic analyses. The methods developed will then be applied to optimize energy retrofitting methods.
