In the above open access journal publication the authors present the ENERFUND tool which displays the current energy performance of a group of buildings and pinpoints the energy renovation potential for the selected buildings. The tool was developed with the building sector in mind, mainly due to the fact that it is the sector with the largest consumption of energy. Many policies and national energy strategies have prepared ambitious goals to significantly decrease the sector’s energy consumption and the authors believe that an important step for the implementation of these strategies is the detection of the potential to energy renovate the existing building stock through ENERFUND. The tool utilizes data from publicly available Energy Performance Certificates in the form of an interactive web map and combines them with other geo-referenced data and general information to allow for a rating of deep renovation opportunities. The paper explains the various features of the tool, and presents typical examples of the tool use for targeted stakeholder interests.
