building and insulation performance, fire protection, acoustical
performance, environmental and health standards, and now
sustainability standards.
Mineral wool producers
also explicitly
promote third party control over the declared properties of
the products
. The mineral wool producers participate via their
national standardisation body and they provide expertise in
various standardisation committees.
The mineral wool industry is convinced that
sound knowledge
is the best possible base for any policy development and in
the case of a
complex matter such as the energy savings
in
buildings, this is even more
necessary
.
This is why for over a decade Eurima, supported a series of
publications issued by Ecofys on energy performance of
buildings and its influence on Climate Change. This series
of nine research studies quantified the
potential of energy
savings in buildings
, the
economics of these savings
, and the
policy instruments needed
.
Eurima has also supported
research into the economic and
financial issues related to building renovation
. In 2011,
Ecofys carried out for Eurima the report: “Economics of deep
renovation”, which details the economic feasibility of deep
renovations for single and multi-family homes across the EU,
taking a case-study analysis as its basis. More recently, Eurima
and Climate Strategy & Partners published a study on the
financial mechanisms that are needed for the renovation of the
EU’s building stock.
All Eurima studies are available for public information in our
