ABSTRACT
According to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, buildings account for up to 40% of energy use in most countries. Reducing energy consumption and eliminating wastage are among the main goals of the European Union. The identification of the most appropriate energy retrofitting options is a topic of outstanding importance given the potential costs and impacts involved. The paper will present a comparison between the energy consumptions of a building in four given scenarios. Also the cost efficiency for the two energy retrofitting variants will be analysed.

Keywords: energy performance, energy retrofit, costs, sustainable buildings
