In Amsterdam 700-900 dwellings will be retrofitted and CO2 reduction target is 3,000 tonnes per year. The existing building stock will be improved to ensure affordable total living costs (rent and energy) for tenants now and in the future, while in the same time establish better comfort in the dwellings. To reach these goals, the key is to empower tenants and home-owners to save energy and to involve them in the to co-designing with other stakeholders innovative approaches for energy efficient retrofitting. Home-owners are challenged to invest in energy saving measures, as they benefit from a lower energy bill, more comfortable and a healthier home.
