Abstract: In this paper the existing housing stock in EU Member States is considered, especially in seismic active regions with high or medium seismic hazard and possible seismic risk. It is focused on individual energy renovation and seismic retrofitting of RC buildings with infill walls and masonry buildings and how to increase the seismic and thermal properties using innovative new materials. Moreover, it is about the simultaneous energy and seismic renewal of the existing buildings using new composite systems and new materials. At the end, we can envision that in the next years after energy deep renovations building will be sustainable and seismic safe and less vulnerable in potential new earthquakes.
The paper is specifically related to the analysis which are given by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) (2018). JRC is the Commission's science and knowledge service and carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy. Due to revised Directive (EPBD) Member States with high and moderate seismic activities must prepare National Energy Efficiency Action Plan and describe the energy efficiency improvement measures for energy deep renovations with seismic retrofitting, which are planned at national level to achieve the target of the Directive.
