An EU-funded consortium has developed a next-generation insulation system using lightweight nano-cellular foam in combination with active moisture monitoring and control technology. The aim is to improve the thermal performance, longevity and sustainability of new and retrofitted buildings.
Close to 10,000 pupils, students and teachers are achieving reductions in their energy consumption from 15% to 30% thanks to the Green Awareness in Action (GAIA) project where youngsters are using digital technology to drive behavioural change.
The ACE-Retrofitting project, co-funded by the Interreg North-West Europe programme, has launched a discussion group open to all individuals interested in the energy retrofitting of condominiums (tenements).
INEA has received 159 project proposals by yesterday’s deadline of two Competitive Low-Carbon topics, focusing on renewable energy systems integrated in buildings (LC-SC3-RES-4-2018) and improving renewable technologies (LC-SC3-RES-11-2018 ).
Today, EU ambassadors confirmed the political agreement reached between the Estonian presidency and the European Parliament in December 2017 on the revised directive on the energy performance of buildings.
This event aims at identifying solutions to overcome potential constraints and hurdles of private property owners to engaging in energy efficiency retrofitting of their buildings by exploring the potential advantages of AdoREs. “AdoREs” is an acronym that stands for “Assistant buildings’ addition and Renewable Energy Sources” (AdoREs). It refers to a set of assistant building units – such as additions to the side, the top or façade or even entire new building constructions – potentially integrated with renewable energy sources.
Having previously explored financing home renovation as part of this series of webinars within the frame of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums contract, this webinar looks at home renovation from the perspective of the end user. While capital may be readily available to finance renovation, services that combine technical and financial advice together are not always available and the complexity and the burden of implementing a renovation project may be too high for some householders. This webinar will present successful examples that overcome these barriers and deliver home renovation at scale.
