- A Smart Modular Heat Recovery Ventilation (SMHRV) for the air renewal allows the heat recovery from the extracted air using a double flux exchanger. Indoor Air Quality is ensured while limiting the energy losses.
- A Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage (LHTES) based on phase change materials provides a heat storage system for heating and cooling peak saving.
- A smart management that controls the system on a real time basis targeting optimal performances
- An efficient anchoring system that limits thermal bridges and allows an easy and durable installation.

Today’s measured rate of refurbishment is much lower than what should be observed to remain in line with Europe 2050 ambitions. There is a need to accelerate the market uptake and large-scale implementation of energy efficient refurbishment solutions to bring the renovation level to 3% per year until 2030. The poor market acceptance of innovative and adaptable refurbishment solutions is in most cases due to the fact that these solutions are not associated to an adequate business model. Innovating on the technological side is not enough: there is also a need to innovate on the business side. Innovative business models have already been demonstrated and validated, but their replication is very slow: how can this replication be supported?The following business models will be presented:
Business models based on One Stop Shop (OSS) concept
- OSS based on Step-by-Step approach [Example: Enerphit]
- OSS provided as a complementary business (e.g. by utilities) [Example:Dong-CleanTech concept]
- OSS provided by Private-Public-Partnership [Example: Remourban]
- OSS provided by multi-disciplinary team cooperation [Example: Energiesprong]
- OSS provided by joint venture of retailers with industry and contractors [Example K-Rauta and Rautia]
- OSS provided by contractors’ cluster cooperation [Example: ENRENOV]
- OSS supported by digital tools [Example: BetterHome ]
Business models based on Product Service Systems (PSS) - Energy Service Companies (ESCO)
- Energy Supply Contracting (ESC)
- Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) [Example: EPC+]
- Integrated Energy Contracting (IEC)
Business models based on new and innovative revenue models
- Feed-in remuneration scheme
- Developing properties certified with a green building label
- Building owner profiting from rent increases after the implementation of energy efficiency measures
Business models based on new financing schemes
- Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing [Example: EuroPACE]
- On-bill financing
- Leasing of renewable energy equipment
- Energy savings obligations

RentalCal is an international research project funded by the European Union under the H2020 framework. The project aims at developing a methodology for the profitability assessment of energy efficient refurbishment investments in the rental housing sector. The second objective of RentalCal aims at providing comparable and transparent information on the profitability of energy efficiency investments that can be used both for the assessment of investment decisions, and for the comparative analysis of existing barriers in the private rental housing stock of participating countries. RentalCal specifically aims to prepare the ground for investment in the existing rental housing stock, all across EU.

This Business Model is now being adapted to Europe: EuroPACE adopts best practices from the US PACE market and intends to further enhance its reach, scope, and overall impact well beyond the American experience. This Horizon2020 EU funded project started in March 2018 and will develop, pilot and standardise the PACE financing scheme for residential energy efficiency retrofits in European cities.
