This task consisted in compiling a general inventory of the different innovative energy saving measures for the building stock that have been implemented in the last 5 years by the participating Social Housing Organisations. This new approach enabled the project partners (especially research institutes) to obtain a clearer view of the real performance of each energy saving measure.
Once the general inventory has been completed, Social Housing Companies have been asked to collect all data necessary to conduct a full impact assessment.
Specifications regarding certain aspects of the nature of the data or collection methods have been provided by the national research institutes and Social Housing Organisations.
While data were being collected, other “tips” regarding the implementation and performance follow up of different Energy Saving Measures were also been taken into account. This provided all participating companies with concrete information to help them in their everyday work.
The work done during the Inventory period is the first step to select the 18 Pilot Energy Saving Measures that will be tested during the second phase of the project.
These 18 Pilot ESMs will be analyzed more in detail regarding their maintenance and management aspects. Their costs will be detailed and their impacts on the concerned Pilot Sites will be deepen thanks to an exhaustive scientific analysis. Furthermore, optimization solutions will be proposed in order to improve and to strengthen the economic, energy and social efficiency for these types of interventions. The selection of the 18 Pilot ESM is directly connected to the conclusions of the Inventory.
The objective is to keep, among the 84 Factsheets included in the Inventory a good panel of the most relevant measures for the European Social Housing Organizations.
The Inventory is a raw data basis gathering some repetitive or some well-identified measures. The 18 Pilot ESMs will refine the general blueprint of the Inventory operating a selection process regarding the main concerns of the participating Social Housing Organizations. This next phase of the project will allow to correct and re-orientate some deficiencies of the Inventory.
A particular effort will be carried out in order to propose:
– a coherent ensemble.
Including measures targeting the main topics regarding energy savings with a particular focus on the efficiency of the heating systems. These measures will target the wide range of buildings and systems included in the Inventory. They will try to respect, as much as possible, the general proportions and balance of the Inventory.
– a representative and innovative collection
The Inventory is gathering two families of measures. Some of them are well-know by the practioners but still need some feedbacks regarding some particular aspects (improvement of the energy efficiencies, corrections, supervision of the maintenance). Other measures are more innovative and still need to be integrated in the practices of the professionals. The18 Pilot ESMs selection must keep a balance between these two families in order to bridge the gap between the existing knowledge and routines and the future trends that will impact the everyday practice of the social housing sector.
The Conclusion of this deliverable presents the main outputs reached by the partners after the Inventory. It introduces and justifies the 18 Final Pilot ESMs selection.
Principles and justifications for this selection will be detailed for every selected Measure in the report dedicated
