This project aims to demonstrate that large scale energy performance improvements in existing non-residential buildings can satisfy profitability demands set by the building owner/investor and thus become a market driver for major refurbishment of existing buildings towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings.In order to reach the 20-20-20 EU-target it is a fact that the existing European building stock must improve its energy performance.

With today´s knowledge and economical methods there is a great risk that only the easy measures, “the low hanging fruits”, will be carried out while a number of possible and profitable measures will be overlooked. This will lead to energy savings of only 5-20% that will be far from the necessity that each building, when carrying out measures, make improvements of 50-70%.In order to overcome this obvious risk a new and innovative method, called the Total Concept has been developed.

The basic idea is to make an energy saving package of all measures that together fulfil the profitability frames set by the building owner. In this way the economic realities a building owner has to take into account are considered at the same time as the ambitions is increased which will make it possible to come much further with the energy savings than with traditional methods. The project aims to test, adopt and promote the Total Concept method in northern Europe.
