Climate change – Brickstone buildings – Energy refurbishment: Co2olBricks

Rasmussen, T. V. (Lecturer)

Activity: Talks and presentationsTalks and presentations in private or public companies

Description

Tightened requirements to thermal insulation of new buildings and the resulting demand for a reduction of energy consumption for heating and comfort in order to reduce CO2 emissions mean that existing and especially older buildings have a very low thermal standard compared with today's requirements. Therefore, there is an increased interest in improving the thermal insulation standard of many existing and older buildings.
However, special attention should be paid to prevent degradation of the existing construction when the energy demand for heating and thermal comfort of a building decrease as a result of improved thermal insulation measures.
