OBJECTIVES

  • To develop a cost-effective “energy efficient retrofitting” methodology for public buildings
  • To include existing available building solutions and also advanced innovative ones to develop a retrofitting “kit”

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS

  • A “kit-concept” will be applied in the development of new solutions in order to deploy adaptable and affordable solutions.
  • The methodology and retrofitting kits will be demonstrated and validated through three real retrofitting deployments, covering main climatic areas in Europe (Continental, Oceanic and Mediterranean), different types of public districts and main public end-users. Moreover, the replicability of A2PBEER results will be further validated through the deployment at three virtual pilot sites

TECHNOLOGIES

  • A “high performance envelope retrofitting”, based on an external and internal super-insulated façade (VIP–Vacuum Insulated Panels) retrofit
  • Smart windows
  • “Smart lighting systems” combining LED and natural light
  • The “Smart Dual Thermal Substation”, a new approach to district heating based in smart grid functionality and integrating heating and cooling

IMPACTS

  • Non-residential buildings’ energy consumption is 40% higher than in residential buildings. Public buildings represent more than 30% of the non-residential buildings in the EU. A kit concept for retrofitting public buildings will provide an accessible and practical way to improve the energy efficiency of our building stock
  • Training programs developed within the project scope will train an audience capable of making retrofitting decisions for different climate zones
  • Project outcomes have to the point impacts on building energy efficiency to reach EU’s “20-20-20” targets
