Abstract
As tomorrow’s cities are already largely built, many strategies stress the importance of urban renewal processes to address current energy issues. This paper focuses on the Spanish residential building stock built until 2001, which has a low level of energy performance. Considering the current economic crisis, the future lies in renovating the built environment, which holds a significant energy-saving potential. This potential is here quantified by applying the cost-optimal methodology, initi...
