Abstract: Nowadays several technological and constructive options are available to improve energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality in buildings. Techniques exist to cut existing buildings' consumption by half or three quarters and to halve the energy consumption of typical appliances. But the renovation rate of buildings is too low, as is the uptake of the most efficient appliances. In order to determine the profitability of investments in building energy retrofit, a number of retrofit scenarios should be developed. The authors of this paper offer an approach for determining the energy retrofit effectiveness based both on expected energy savings and the increase in market value of the retrofitted buildings. In line with the proposed approach, the paper will present a comparison between the energy consumptions of a building in four given scenarios.
