The European Union established the 2020 climate and energy package, setting three key targets, namely a 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, a 20% improvement in energy efficiency and a 20% of EU energy from renewable energy. This set of binding legislation was enacted in 200 9 to ensure that EU meets its climate and energy targets. The fact that about 41% of the EU energy consumption is coming from the building sector, imposes for the implementation of EU directives to its Member States for the building sector's energy performance, such as 2010/31/EU and 2012/27/EU. In this dissertation the EYATH S.A, office building, will be examined and ways to make it a nearly zero - energy building will be proposed, as commercial buildings are major energy consumers. Regarding the methodology applied in this study; a specific measuring equipment and KENAK software are used to examine the indoor environmental conditions of the building. Measurements from seventeen temperature/ relative humidity data loggers, a lux meter and a comfort meter were used in order to determine the prevailing indoor comfort conditions of the EYATH SA. The energy performance of the office building is assessed with the help of KENAK software, and three retrofitting measures are examined, with respect to potential energy savings. The results occur from the impact on the energy consumption and the financial analysis. (EN)
