The value of derivative effects associated with energy renovation of buildings

Energy end use, efficiency and demand response | September 2019 - November 2019

Energy efficiency projects often have derivative effects, which are typically not explicitly recognised in the project economy. Many studies of derivative effects have been conducted over the years, but it is still a challenge to map and evaluate these effects, as robust values ​​require before and after measurements, preferably in longer time series, and with comparison groups.

In this project, Ea Energy Analyses performed a literary review on this topic, including a survey, assessment, and summary of results from studies that might be relevant in a Danish context.

The project was carried out on behalf of the Danish Energy Agency and ran from September to December 2019.
