Abstract

When dealing with renovation or restoration projects aiming to improve the energy performance of a building belonging to a country’s historical and cultural heritage cultural heritage it is necessary to carefully weigh different aspects such as: energy efficiency, modernization or comfort. The EnBau project focuses on energy retrofitting of historic heritage buildings with high architectural values to be preserved. The main focus of this project is to find appropriate solutions combining the interest for energy improvement and monument protection without risking damaging the irreplaceable historical values. Technical solutions are presented through the analysis of three Swiss case studies. The objective of this paper is to raise the awareness of restoration experts regarding energy efficiency issues, providing them with potential solutions by developing a useful decision-making tool.
