Description

This study aims to analyse the effect of economic indicators on cost-optimal levels of residential building retrofits in Mediterranean region of Turkey. Sensitivity analyses were applied on the cost-optimality calculation results for the residential reference building. The sensitivity analyses address discount rate and potential investment cost decreases. Results reveal that 6% variation in the discount rate corresponds to more than 30 kWh/m2y difference in the primary energy consumption of the cost-optimal solutions. Potential investment cost decreases for certain retrofit measures are also effective on identified cost-optimal levels and subsidy opportunities appear as an effective tool to achieve higher energy efficiency in existing buildings and to stimulate building energy retrofits.

Effect of Economic Indicators on Cost-Optimal Energy Performance Levels of Residential Buildings Retrofits in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey
