dc.description.abstractWorldwide the building sector is responsible for consuming more than 36% of the final global energy and produces 39% of carbon dioxide emissions. Accordingly, sustainable retrofit is an important method to achieve energy reduction and sustainable development. However, the lack of information on retrofit technologies and their benefits trigger stakeholders opposition to retrofit actions. The Energy Performance Certificate tool can be used to overcome the knowledge gap and boost energy saving by strengthening its recommendation report with retrofit technologies for energy performance. Therefore, this paper attempts to determine the best retrofit technologies to be highlighted in the Energy Performance Certificates recommendation report, by considering stakeholder's opinion. For this purpose, a model based on Quality Function Deployment has been developed. The model analyzes the data regarding stakeholders expectations when deciding to retrofit, and the potential retrofit technologies used. In order to validate the applicability of the proposed model, a case study was conducted in Romania. The findings are expected to contribute to improving the quality of the Energy Performance Certificate, as reflecting stakeholders opinion combined with sustainable concepts to achieve significant energy savings.-
