These case studies are steps showing the potential results which can be obtained at the building scale with a life cycle energy cost analysis. They give:
- the results of an energy retrofitting optimization only as regarding the factor 4 and so with only one criteria: the reduction of greenhouse effect gas emissions
- the results of the life cycle energy cost analysis of best practices in each European country and especially in France and Italy.


Life Cycle Energy Cost Model implemented in different case studies.
