Abstract: Improvement of the energy efficiency of existing buildings in EU has great potential in the efforts to reduce energy consumption, which is with no doubt relevant issue also for Ukraine. In this article the importance of public building stock modernization was analysed with special focus on school buildings. The optimal cost methodology was used to evaluate not only the economic, but also environmental as well as social effects of school building stock modernization. In searching for the optimal level of energy-efficient modernization of school buildings in Ukraine, the European and Slovenian experiences were used. It is demonstrated that the sustainable reconstruction with the nearly-Zero Energy Building (nZEB) guidelines, as defined in EU regulations, is feasible with good results and can be recommended also for reconstruction of school buildings in Ukraine.
Keywords: cost optimum, energy efficiency, nearly zero energy building, building envelope, heating
