Abstract: There is a pressing need for housing renovations that integrate both inclusive design (ID) as well as energy efficiency (EE). A simultaneous renovation might lead to concepts supporting both. Based on surveys conducted at the UD living lab in Hasselt and a literature study, this poster shows the common goals in ID and EE and clarifies the triggers for people to renovate with an eye to ID and EE. The results outline that comfort is an important driver for EE, ID and for users themselves to renovate. Using comfort as a merging goal for inclusive design and energy efficiency is a disruptive approach to housing renovation but might be an innovative solution for social sustainability.
