Abstract
RENSOL (Regional Energy Solutions) project deals with the use of Nordic energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions in Kaliningrad Oblast to tackle the climate change. Overall objective of the RENSOL work package 1 is to build awareness and knowledge on solutions for energy efficient buildings and street lighting applications. This project report describes available solutions to improve housing energy efficiency.

Firstly report discusses about barriers and possible solutions related to the housing energy efficiency improvements. Nordic solutions to improve energy efficiency in buildings are then introduced. Energy efficiency in street lighting applications is also studied. Two example cases in Kaliningrad Oblast are finally studied with a modelling tool, and their energy efficiency improvement potentials are determined. Based on the obtained results, suggestions for improvement actions are given. Finally, generalised conclusions are formed according to the obtained results.
