Abstract

The BELOK Total Concept is a method that motivates property owners to
carry out larger energy renovation projects with maximum energy savings in a costefficient way. The purpose of the present work is to clarify the benefits and business opportunities in using the Total Concept method. In order for the method to be used on a larger scale, there must be commercial interest from the different companies to provide services with the method. The target groups are among others Engineering companies with energy consultants, design engineers and architects, Contractors and technology providers, energy controllers and ESCO companies. The article provides a market analysis of possibilities and barriers for energy renovations that have been carried out in Finland, Denmark and Sweden together with experiences from pilot buildings where the Total Concept method has been applied. The estimated annual market volume of renovation in the three Nordic countries is estimated to be about 4 million m2 and the total investment volume up to 280 MEUR per year. For the key actors involved in the Total Concept method the annual market volume is estimated to be about 70 MEUR. Furthermore, a new relevant key function relevant for the process, called a Total Concept Manager, has been
identified.
