Correlating Maintenance, Energy Efficiency and Fuel Poverty for Traditional Buildings in the UK

The scoping study here reviews potential for developing a research framework to address the feasibility for energy efficiency of historic buildings to be increased through better maintenance programmes. The new British Standard for conservation has already triggered recognition of the correlation of dampness to energy efficiency (BSI, 2013), here we aim to address further means to link building condition to building performance and to further substantiate that claim. More broadly the paper investigates he potential for recovering evidence in the interests of incentivising maintenance as a business case addressed to stakeholders and custodians, underwriters and legislators.
