Booklet “Energy Efficiency in European historic urban districts – A practical guidance” – available soon!

The booklet “Energy Efficiency in European historic urban districts – A practical guidance” will be available as printed version at the final conference of EFFESUS on June 24, 2016 in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. Afterwards it will be also available as online version at this website.

It provides insights into the main results and findings of the four year European funded EFFESUS project. Organized in five main chapters, the booklet contains a wide range of information to support communities in improving energy efficiency in European historic districts. It includes key project outcomes of EFFESUS such as strategies for energy assessment, the analysis of existing solutions, the development of innovative solutions and a software-based decision support system, as well as presenting non-technical barriers encountered and experiences of the case studies.

Furthermore, together with the booklet, the EFFESUS video, illustrating the main project outputs, will be released.
