In January 2015, the Norwegian energy agency ENOVA improved the national subsidy scheme that grants energy efficiency technologies as well as renewable energies in the residential sector since 2008. Since 2015 the applicant has a legal right for the funding“ if the household fulfills all eligible criteria. This is called “rettighetsbasert” in Norwegian, which could be translated to „rights-based“. Households enjoy a financial support of 25 % of the documented total expenses (including VAT).

Buildings are responsible for up to 35 % of the total energy consumption in many IEA countries. Exemplary non-residential renovation projects are showing that total primary energy consumption can be drastically reduced together with improvements of the indoor climate. This IEA SHC report highlights 20 of these renovation projects. The projects are also described in detail in a series of eight-page brochures available for download from http://task47.iea-shc.org/publications.
