Our project lead, Alexandros Charalambides, Assistant Professor at the Cyprus University of Technology presented ENERFUND and talked about what is needed for energy retrofiring at the European Utility Week in Barcelona.


ENERFUND will help you prioritize which buildings under your responsibility will benefit the most from energy retrofitting, not only in energy terms, but taking employment, health issues and other social aspects into consideration.

Banking & Financial Insitutions

ENERFUND will rank large private and public buildings, not only based on their energy performance, but also on financial and other exogenous indicators, providing you with targeted investment opportunities.

Energy Retrofitting Companies

ENERFUND will provide you with targeted customer leads by comparing both individual buildings and data at an aggregated level and a customer management solution by enabling you to display your clientele in a user friendly way.


ENERFUND is a tool that will rate and score deep renovation opportunities – like a credit score used by banks to rate clients. The tool will be based on a set of parameters such as EPC data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, etc. By providing a rating for deep renovation opportunities – whether for private establishments or for public buildings – funding institutes can provide targeted loans, retrofit companies can identify sound opportunities, municipalities can promote targeted incentives and the public’s trust for retrofitting will be enhanced.


The project consortium, led by the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), is composed of 15 interdisciplinary organisations representing 12 EU countries.
