Improving Energy Efficiency in Traditional Buildings, Guidance for Specifiers and Installers
Ireland has set ambitious targets to reach to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and meet international commitments on climate change mitigation. Improving energy efficiency in the traditional building stock is key to meeting these commitments.
While the emphasis on the energy retrofit of buildings is important, the integrity of our traditional buildings needs to be respected when changes are being made. The energy performance of most of our historic and traditional buildings can be improved, helping them continue to be viable, both now and into the future.
We want to keep our traditional buildings in use and allow them to continue to provide comfortable, safe and beautiful places to live and work.
This guidance aims to provide clear and robust advice to specifiers and installers, while also being accessible to a wider audience.
