Donald Stevens, University of Cambridge Six barriers and one solution for saving energy
To make new achievements in energy efficiency, we need to remove or minimize existing barriers. RentalCal project, supported by EASME, has studied the country specific barriers in the eight countries, participating in the consortium.
Kai Möhrmann and Thomas Lützkendorff "The chain of effects of energy retrofit measures – a contribution to the project RentalCal"
As a contribution to the EU-project RentalCal it is discussed and illustrated, what consequences result from energy performance improvements of existing buildings and how they influence cash flow and real estate value along a chain of effects. In particular, explanatory patterns and lines of arguments which complement and interpret empirical evidence are developed.

The economics of such structural measures are often questioned because of the bonus by the energy cost savings alone to the tenant. The article discuss the energy-saving investments, especially from the perspective of owners and renters. Read the article in German here
