When facing a retrofitting project which tries to improve the energy performance of a cultural heritage building it is necessary to weigh carefully different aspects such as: energy efficiency, modernization and comfort. These energy improvements are desirable, but are not always possible without compromises. The situation may become slightly problematic when solar energy systems should be installed in historic buildings. The first step to overcoming barriers successfully, is to better understand the processes for both, historic preservation and solar PV project implementation, and to foster working with professionals in each sector to receive appropriate support and guidance. Establishing an assessment criterion for each step was the top priority of the research project presented here to assist in achieving a successful result.
