This project is a part of a joint European research project, “Total Concept”, which is a method for improving the energy performance in existing non-Residential buildings. The method focuses on achieving maximum energy savings in a Building within the profitability frames set by a building owner, who plans to invest. The method differentiates from other refurbishment approaches by using a comprehensive energy audit plan, advanced energy simulation methods, a complex economic model and analysis of measures that may have a reasonable energysaving potential. The aim of the demonstration project was to form a package of measures for an energy performance improvement in the building based on the Total Concept method. This paper presents results from recently analyzed data on two renovated Danish buildings according to the rules of “Total Concept” method. According to the estimation done based on available information the identified measures in total lead to at least 22% and 37% energy saving, respectively for the building 1 and Building 2.
