In general, the recommendations based on cost-efficiency are similar to the recommendations derived from possible Post-Kyoto targets. If adapted, the findings on floor insulation and cooling demand, could also account for floors in southern Europe, which show larger differences in this comparison.

As an important conclusion it can be stated that the climate targets discussed and the corresponding insulation levels necessary can be justified from a financial point of view.
