Do you plan a new HC system or building refurbishment? What is the replacement potential in the REPLACE regions?

01 April 2021

When planning to exchange an old heating or cooling (HC) system or to refurbish a building, many questions may arise. REPLACE offers a helping hand: with its 38 best practice examples, it presents projects that have been successfully realized and that now help to save energy, money and the climate.

The examples depict concisely e.g. what new technology people have chosen, if there had been any difficulties during the installation process or what worked particularly well, and how they profit from the new system. A table in the end of each example contains the most important data from installed capacity, over initial investment up to incentive schemes available.

All 38 Best Practice Examples are contained in the English version of the D4.4 Report.

For each of the ten REPLACE target regions, a selection of translated Best Practice Examples is available.



How do people in the REPLACE regions heat and cool their buildings today? And what potential for climate friendly replacements is there in the future? Based on the data available for a base year, the REPLACE team has developed three scenarios that describe the impact of the REPLACE project: in the number of boilers and homes replacing old inefficient systems by new sustainable ones, as well as the energy savings, CO2 emissions reduction and level of investment triggered.

The three scenarios cover a business as usual, an optimistic and a pessimistic REPLACE scenario. The scenarios in Report D3.2 refer to the overall project as well as the ten target regions from Western over Central to South-Eastern Europe.
