Energy efficiency in the building sector has recently become a priority topic relating to the fulfilment of the EU 3x20% targets by 2020, due to the share of buildings in the total energy consumption as well as the complexity ot this matter. However, the fact that a number of buildings are protected by cultural heritage regulations presents an empirical obstacle for deep energy renovation of the building stock. Percentage of buildings listed as cultural heritage is significant, by some estimates as high as 25%. This has created an unnecessary gap between energy managers and conservers which, at first glance, may seem to present an insoluble problem. Still, although seemingly oppositional, bringing the disciplines of conservation and energy management together can result in creative and advanced technological solutions. This is demonstrated in a number of excellent cases that ensure sustainability of cultural heritage while contributing to sustainable use of resources.
