8. Comparison of results

The results of the calculations for U-value from an economic point of view and from the viewpoint of possible Post-Kyoto targets are compared hereinafter with existing requirements in the assessed countries. This can be done in two ways.

The first way is to directly compare the U-value from above calculations with legal requirements on component level. This comparison is done in chapter 8.1.

In a second approach, the calculated U-value are used as input for national calculation schemes to meet the required standards on the overall energy performance of a building according to the EPBD. According comparisons are described in chapter 8.2.
