ALDREN: ALliance for Deep RENovation in buildings ALliance for Deep RENovation in buildings Implementing the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme, as back-bone along the whole deep renovation process
:: Previous Initiative
ALDREN targets and supports investments in deep renovation, encouraging key Building stakeholders to contribute to the “Renovation wave” that has been recently announced in the European Green Deal. To be efficient, the Green Deal will have to be consistent from the political top level to the identification of relevant renovation actions by owners and consultants, investment decisions from the financial sector and application on the field by qualified building professionals. ALDREN proposes a transparent, consistent, common EU-wide assessment framework to trigger more ambitious renovation projects through the inclusion of improved sustainability metrics in certifications and the use of decision-support protocols and tools.
There is a need for a common language to be shared between the stakeholders of the implementation chain. An ALDREN Alliance has been set up to better specify their needs and reflect them in high-quality protocols.
ALDREN is a methodological framework consisting of 4 standalone MODULES to assess the energy performance, Indoor Environmental Quality, and financial value of buildings, and 2 reporting TOOLS (EU Voluntary Certificate, Building Renovation Passport).
ALDREN’s methodology has been explicitly demonstrated and implemented on a set of buildings (offices, hotels), concerned with deep renovation, and located in Spain, France, Slovakia, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
