Deep renovation

In accordance with the Energy Efficiency Directive (see recital 16), cost‐effective deep renovations lead to a refurbishment that reduces both the delivered and final energy consumption of a building by a significant percentage compared with the pre‐renovation levels leading to a very high energy performance. Such deep renovations could also be carried out in stages. The Commission services have indicated (see SWD(2013) 143 final) that the significant efficiency improvements resulting from deep renovation are typically of more than 60% energy savings.
