This book presents work undertaken as part of the COST Action Smart Energy Regions (SMARTER). The link between cost and value is demonstrated for both new buildings and for the retrofitting of old buildings, as well as infrastructure and energy systems, at both regional and national levels. Aspects investigated within this book related to cost and value include environmental design, sustainable retrofitting, energy systems and technologies as well as smart energy regions. The impact of both a top-down and bottom-up approach are considered in relation to progress the low carbon agenda relevant at a regional scale. 

This work supports the broader aims and objectives of the Smart Energy Regions COST Action to investigate the drivers and barriers that may impact on the
large scale implementation of low carbon technologies in the built environment essential to meet the targets for sustainable development set by the EU and national governments. This publication is part of suite of outputs from the Smart Energy Regions COST Action investigating different aspects associated with implementation of the low carbon agenda at a region scale.
