The paper contains the analysis of the goals and objectives of improving energy efficiency of residential buildings, as well as the methodology of selecting energy-efficient modernization measures for historic buildings. The priority objective of this study was selected as a residential housing energy efficiency of historic buildings as a tool to improve the quality of the human environment. The development of renewable energy technologies is presented as an alternative for energy saving. If we take the purpose of improving energy efficiency as an improvement of the quality of the human environment (from the living quarters level to global environmental sustainability), the alternative to energy saving of traditional energy resources can be the replacement of them by energy from renewable sources, even lavish spending of which does not harm the environment . All energy saving should be focused primarily in man-made environments (industrial processes, heating systems and etc.), the anthropogenic environment (living environment) should get the maximum energy for the stable provision of quality microclimate.
