The research aims to assist the evidence-based design of the most cost-effective new policies targeted at CO2 emission reductions in the Hungarian commercial and public building sector. The project goal was to estimate and to analyze CO2 mitigation potentials in the tertiary sector and associated costs resulting from the application of energy-efficient technologies and practices as well as the use of fuel switch options from the demand side. In addition, the study identifies the most promising options in terms of cost-effectiveness and CO2 reduction potential.
