Energy retrofit of historic buildings is a relatively new task in the construction sector. It is therefore important to offer reliable solutions to practitioners and end-users that prevent any undesired outcome. Often, the lack of trust and awareness of the available solutions is limiting the extent of interventions. This has a negative effect on the final energy savings and occupants’ comfort, important factors when it comes to the use and conservation of historic buildings. The Atlas will provide an international collection of exemplary case studies that go beyond current practice in their scope and in depth of information provided. This unique collection of experience from all over the world will allow architects and building owners to browse through best practice examples and find the most relevant information to pursue their own renovation. The purpose of this paper is to show and discuss the need for such a repository as well as the functions and possibilities of the database.
