MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"Rapid global warming and climate change are two main problems today’s generation is facing. A significant contributor to those developments is the building stock, which represents approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. While only a few existing buildings are modernized each year, almost three-quarters are presently energy inefficient. Renovating the old building stock towards sustainable energy goals would therefore significantly benefit the energy savings. These energy improvements are desirable, but not always possible without compromises, especially when approaching heritage preserved architecture. Implementing energy efficient measures to these precious buildings can create physical implications that may arise as a conservational issue. In some cases, aesthetic alterations require review and approval by the corresponding official authorities, which usually implies long and tedious administrative work. In other cases, missing conservation guidelines and regulations can lead to high damage of this heritage. For this reason, the research aims to find proper aesthetical solutions that fuse both, sustainable energy interventions and architectural heritage conservation. This thesis examines the importance and characteristics of conservation, focusing on residential architecture in Europe. By analysing four essential retrofitting techniques within the context of preservation, this thesis addresses the application of solar panels in historic buildings. It provides insight into installation principles, and the proposed conclusion offers a design solution as part of the integrated case study of a heritage preserved Villa in Potsdam, Germany."
