The project for the Franklin district of Mulhouse is the first French experiment in the renovation of old buildings in the context of a deteriorating urban area with a historic character to preserve incorporating firm energy objectives. Its first phase has just been completed with the publication of a feedback report regarding its energy concept; large parts of this paper are based on these findings. The latter is in line with the Annex 51 programme of the International Energy Agency; Energy Efficient Communities: Case Studies and Strategic Guidance for Urban Decision Makers. The aim of this paper is to clarify the main elements enabling this project and to present the first results after two years of monitoring.
