The scoping study here funded by Historic England, Historic Environment Scotland and Cadw, looks at the potential for a developing a research framework to address the potential for energy efficiency for historic buildings to be increased with better maintenance programmes. The new British Standard for conservation has already triggered recognition of the correlation of dampness to energy efficiency (British Standards Institution., 2013), here we aim to address further means to link building condition to building performance and to further substantiate that claim. More broadly the paper investigates the potential for recovering evidence in the interests of incentivising maintenance as a business case addressed to stakeholders and custodians, underwriters and legislators.
