THE ALDREN CONTENT
The overarching ambition of the ALDREN initiative is to consolidate, promote and implement an extended harmonized procedure, based on the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme for non-residential buildings (EVCS) and a set of relevant instruments, in order to support building deep renovation operations, all along the process, tackling its organizational, financial and technical components issues. In line with the development of the EVCS, the primary scope is focused on non-residential buildings (especially offices and hotels) but the real application is wider including residential sector.
Hotels and offices have been identified by the Triple E market study (see references) as the sectors that are most likely to benefit from a common scheme. The characteristics of the buildings have to fit the requirements for deep renovation (at least 60% of energy savings) and address health and well-being. Therefore, it is intended in the proposal to certify big buildings (floor area of around 10 000 m2) and a yearly primary energy use before renovation more than 200 kWh/m2 and after renovation less than 70 kWh/m2. The buildings could be buildings under renovation or subject to be renovated. In all cases the ALDREN procedure will be used to determine the improvements in all aspects (e.g. energy performance, health and wellbeing, asset value, actual performance).
