Not many reports on energy efficient school retrofit project are known to the broader public. Even less reports are known about the issue of indoor environment quality in retrofitted school buildings. The purpose of this work package is to create a database on existing knowledge, which can function as part of the foundation for the succeeding work packages in our project, and also to be relevant for other school projects.
A comprehensive survey is to be carried out, regarding existing knowledge on energy efficient solutions and indoor climate that are appropriate for schools. There will be reviews of completed and on-going projects, and the most recent literature, relevant for school buildings, in the participating countries. The topics to be analysed are:
- Energy efficiency
- Carbon emissions
- Indoor environment
- Pupils performance
