When intending to renovate an existing building,with energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions in mind, a building owner is always questioning himself if the availableinvestment resources are being directed to an effective returnand if there are ways to improve this return. In addition, it is quite difficult to identify all the criteria to be considered in suchdecision and how to structure it in a formal and systematic process that involves all necessary stakeholders. This paperpresents an innovative approach to support decision-makingwhen choosing energy-efficiency investments on building renovations. The proposed approach uses prediction based onmodel consumption to propose alternative energetic scenariosand the Analytic Hierarchy Process to select the best one.
