The project aim was to demonstrate the effects of improved energy efficiency (EE) of residential buildings on indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and health, and to develop an assessment protocol. We assessed building, IEQ, and health related outcomes in a number of case studies in Finland and Lithuania.
The specific objectives were to:
-Develop a common protocol for assessment of the impacts of improved EE of buildings on IEQ and health;
-Demonstrate the effects of EE on IEQ and health in 2–3 European countries; and
-Develop guidance and support the implementation of the related policies and dissemination of information.
