CEN Workshop Agreement on Guidelines for an integrated approach of building retrofitting projects based on enhanced shallow geothermal technologies

This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) provides orientation for the management of building retrofitting projects, based on enhanced shallow geothermal technologies, in form of guidelines for the classification of an integrated design team and the identification of the primary roles of actors among the whole project life-cycle.

As well as a general workflow for building retrofitting projects based on enhanced shallow geothermal technologies, to be adapted or modified considering the specificities of each project requirements, and site characteristics, and stakeholder profiles involved in the process.


This workshop was motivated by the currently ongoing Horizon 2020 GEOFIT project (Deployment of novel GEOthermal systems, technologies and tools for energy efficient building retroFITting), whose general objective is the implementation of a global, effective, energy-efficient retrofitting strategy for the stock of existing buildings in Europe, boosting the adoption of appropriate geothermal based energy-efficient building retrofitting technologies and methods.


All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft CWA to the Workshop secretary, Mrs. Ana Benedicto (abenedicto@une.org), by 10 September 2022
