On Monday, 5 February, Mr. Andreas Androutsopoulos presented for the ENERFUND tool to representatives of ESCOs at CRES premises in Athens. He showed the structure of the tool and its capabilities and discussed the advantages of the tool information and the potential to be utilized by Energy services companies. A photo from the event is shown below.
The ENERFUND project was presented on 30.01.2018 at the 5th Interregional Event of ENERSELVES project organised by the North-East Regional Development Agency (ADR-NE) in Iasi, Romania.
Best cases on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy from the Region were proudly presented to Romanian stakeholders and international project partners, together with latest news and description of tools for deep energy renovation and nZEB implementation from EU projects.
ENERFUND is a tool that rates and scores deep renovation opportunities. The tool is based on a set of parameters such as Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes, etc.
By providing a rating for deep renovation opportunities, ENERFUND helps to provide targeted loans, identify sound opportunities, promote targeted incentives and gain confidence in retrofitting.
This document (ENERFUND_APP_UserGuide) guides the users of the ENERFUND web application through a step by step approach. Also, the ENERFUND team has produced a short instructional video on how to use the application.
Mr. Horia Petran, member of the ENERFUND project, has participated at the workshop ‘Vocational Skills for Energy Efficient Buildings’ that was held in Bucharest, Romania on 24 October, 2017. Participants present and discuss challenges and opportunities in relation to empowering skills to support the quality of building construction and the rate of building renovation towards NZEB. The event was also streamed live through the BUILD UP portal.
On 20 and 21 November 2017, the official launch of the ALDREN “ALliance for Deep RENovation in buildings implementing the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme” project was held in Paris. Focusing on creating a common language between technical experts and financial sector and investors, overcoming market barriers and promoting deep renovation of non-residential buildings, the project is funded by Horizon 2020, the European framework programme for research and innovation.
How is ALDREN going to achieve higher renovation rates and better renovation quality?
The excellence of the ALDREN solutions offered are:
1) a harmonized comparable Energy performance rating based on the European Voluntary Certification Scheme (EVCS) verified by measured energy to increase comparability, confidence and market uptake by standardized solutions (CEN / ISO);
2) associating low energy renovation with high quality indoor environments to trigger renovation and to promote health and comfort;
3) aligning market recognition of high quality with enhanced building value by financial tools and capacity building. Establishing business case for deep renovation to motivate private investment and to link building ratings to private, or public national or European financing instruments.

Mr. Marcel Lauko has presented ENERFUND Project and tool during the workshop ‘Breakfast with Buildings for Future’ and in the general assembly of the Slovak Association of Energy Services Providers (APES) on 16.11.2017 and 25.11.2017, respectively.
Mr. Andreas Androutsopoulos presented for the first time the ENERFUND tool during the European Utility Week (EUW17, 3-5 October) in Amsterdam. He showed the structure of the tool and its main capabilities and answered to questions relating its potential use. He also took part in the panel discussion for “Data for Disruption” where he emphasized the importance of energy saving in buildings and the need to effectively use large amounts of energy data.
A successful meeting was held on 19th of October between Institute of Building, Alicante, as a partner of ENERFUND, the Energy Agency of Alicante and the Municipality of Elche in Alicante, Spain.
The participants think that ENERFUND is an interesting tool. Also, the Elche Municipality reported that the tool can be very useful for displaying specific information to citizens. Municipal technicians positively value to find information about the status of achievement of the defined actions in their buildings.
