Selected Publications and Projects about Energy Efficiency and Indoor Environment Quality


The aim of the project School of the Future (SoF) is to contribute to energy efficiency in school building retrofitting, and at the same time focus on the importance of healthy indoor environments. This report is meant to ease the work for people involved in school retrofitting by presenting existing knowledge, theories and experiences, concerning these topics.

The report includes a bibliography of publications about CO2 emissions related to energy consumption, effects of indoor climate on health and performance, and relations between energy efficiency and indoor environments. The most recent publications from the participating countries in the SoF project are reviewed, i.e. Italian, German, Danish and Norwegian publications. Some of these publications are written in English, but mostly they are written in national languages. Titles and abstracts of those publications are translated to English. Included are also some selected publications in English from other countries. Furthermore the report draws the attention to international projects relevant for school building retrofitting, and to programs and centres in the participating countries.
