Despite energy and climate packages, energy consumption in the European Union is increasing, which means solutions are called for. A crucial, but often neglected, sector is the private thermal energy sector. Especially the existing building stock offers large potential savings. This paper studies overall conditions and their impact on future developments of solar thermal power and brings these into relation with a specific type of building within the building stock. In Vienna, ‘Gründerzeit’ buildings make up for a significant part of the building stock. Since many of these buildings have to follow urban heritage conservation guidelines, renovation is even more complicated. In this paper, the stock condition of a case study building is analyzed, and the results used to assess three different scenarios of integrating solar thermal energy. For assessment, defined parameters such as heating demand, environmental emissions, and solar coverage are compared. Based on overall conditions analyzed and solar coverage calculations, one can deduce which chances solar energy has for ‘Gründerzeit’ buildings in Vienna. The use of a renewable heating system after renovating the case study building reduces the environmental emissions by 80 % per year. The solar coverage of the renovated building lies at around 33 %, in the scenario with the least heating demand the coverage is at 60,3 %. The economic efficiency analysis and the water storage tank difficulty are not taken into account, which must be explored in further studies.
