The Project

BuildHeat aims to elaborate a set of reliable, energy efficient and affordable retrofit solutions for multifamily houses, which execution is facilitated by industrialised, modular and flexible HVAC, façade and ICT systems made available on the market. Despite the affordability, innovative solutions are more expensive compared to off the shelf ones. BuildHeat aims to leverage private and public investments by aggregating customers into energy efficient communities that are attractive to large investors, thus promoting retrofit actions at quarter level.
