Energy Pathfinder

Historic buildings represent one of the biggest challenges for improving energy efficiency in the Northern Periphery and Arctic region. The Energy Pathfinder project will work with owners, residents, and other stakeholders in identifying and addressing these challenges. The main outcome from the project will be an online tool kit that will support owners of historical buildings to carry out an energy retrofit that is socially, culturally and environmentally appropriate.

Energy Pathfinder involves six partners from Ireland, Sweden, Scotland, Finland and the Faroe Islands and is supported by the European Union through the Interreg programme for the Northern Periphery and Arctic Region.

Energy Pathfinder Toolkit

Building owners and users need an online Toolkit that can be used to chart how Near Zero Energy standards can be achieved in historic buildings in different regions. In order to develop and demonstrate the toolkit, Energy Pathfinder will work with owners and other stakeholders through a participatory design process. The Toolkit will draw results from this co-design process as well as from an analysis of relevant retrofit measures and renewable energy installations, proposed or carried out on demonstrator buildings, to help owners decide what measures are most appropriate and effective to help their building reach Near Zero Energy Building standards.
