European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power.
Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the EUSEW is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in close cooperation with Directorate-General for Energy.
This year, BuildHeat will partecipate to EUSEW with a Policy Conference in collaboration with other EU-funded like-minded H2020 projects. The Policy Conference is the biggest European conference dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe.
The session “Scaling up deep energy retrofit markets towards 2030 targets” will take place on 18 June – 16.00-17.30 in Brussels.
European Union fixed ambitious objectives in terms of building renovation. To reach them, market actors are searching for innovative solutions, providing a higher integration and adaptation to different situations in European countries. The refurbishment packages will also set oneself apart from other solutions if they succeed to have controlled budget.
The EU H2020 project STUNNING (SusTainable bUsiNess models for the deep reNovation of buIldiNGs) has the goal to promote successful and innovative building renovation packages and business models around a virtual and collaborative knowledge sharing platform: the STUNNING Renovation Hub, so as to accelerate their adoption.
After a short introduction of the STUNNING project by Karine Laffont and Nicolas Peraudeau from DOWEL Management (coordinators), three speakers from European projects will present their solutions:
– 4RinEU, presented by Roberto Lollini: 4RinEU aims at developing a Robust&Reliable technology concepts and business models for triggering deep Renovation of Residential buildings in EU. The 4RinEU pursued impact is to increase efficiency of the whole deep renovation process. Such impact can be achieved: by optimized technology deep renovation packages for different EU geoclusters, supporting stakeholders and market players along the renovation process, while helping to understand renovation issues and associated potentials, to ensure an effective and participated design, and a reduced users’ disturbance because of the renovation process. The 4RinEU rating tool can drive the investors in deep renovation decision process, considering technology risks and performances, in a comprehensive approach;
– BuildHeat, presented by Roberto Fedrizzi: The construction sector offers unique opportunities to decarbonise the European economy. However, as the replacement rate of the existing stock is very small (1-1.5 % per year), acceleration is needed.
BuildHEAT addresses this challenging sector by:
• elaborating systemic packages for the deep rehabilitation of residential buildings
• developing innovative technologies facilitating the implementation of the renovation measures
• developing financial tools enabling large public and private investments
• involving the construction chain from the very beginning and all along the building life cycle.
– HEART, presented by Claudio Del Pero: HEART is a multifunctional retrofit toolkit within which different subcomponents – ICT, BEMS, HVAC, BIPV and Envelope Technologies – cooperate synergistically to transform an existing building into a Smart Building. Based on a whole-building performance approach, the toolkit is conceived to achieve extremely high levels of energy efficiency in the existing residential building stock, with particular reference to Central and Southern Europe, where climate change and energy transition have boosted electricity consumption peaks both during summer and winter seasons. The system’s central core consists of a cloud-based computing platform which concentrates managing and operational logic to support decision-making in planning and construction as well as energy performance enhancement and monitoring during operation. The Toolkit provide energy saving, energy fluxes optimization, data exchange, stakeholders’ active involvement and Smart Grid interactivity.

Il progetto: Il consumo per il riscaldamento nel settore residenziale in Europa si aggira attorno a 2300 TWh/y e il consumo per l’acqua calda intorno a 500 TWh/y, mentre quello per il raffrescamento non supera i 100 TWh/y. Tali contributi fanno sì che il settore delle costruzioni offra delle opportunità uniche per de-carbonizzare e contemporaneamente per rilanciare l’economia Europea.
Poiché però il settore è estremamente frammentato, con più del 50% degli immobili in mano a singoli privati e il mercato dominato da piccole e medie imprese, sia sul fronte dei produttori di tecnologie che degli installatori, il risanamento degli edifici residenziali rappresenta una sfida immensa.
In questo ambito si colloca BuildHeat, progetto co-finanziato dalla Comunità Europea attraverso il programma H2020 per la ricerca e l’innovazione, il cui scopo è lo sviluppo di approcci e tecnologie per il risanamento sistemico dei condomìni.
Oltre allo sviluppo di tecnologie per il riscaldamento, il raffrescamento, la ventilazione e il monitoraggio, che permettono di affrontare a 360 gradi il risanamento in termini di efficienza energetica, comfort e salubrità dell’ambiente abitato, BuildHeat sta sviluppando soluzioni per il finanziamento degli interventi.
In particolare, per il lancio di queste soluzioni sul mercato sono necessari meccanismi di finanziamento mirati al condominio nel suo complesso o addirittura all’intero quartiere. A questo proposito BuildHeat sta mettendo in campo soluzioni in cui si integrano finanza pubblica e privata.
Il seminario: Obiettivo di questo seminario è di riunire esperti del settore delle costruzioni, della finanza e della politica, per discutere in merito alle tecnologie, alle normative vigenti e agli strumenti finanziari sviluppati nell’ambito del progetto. Allo scopo, dopo ogni intervento sarà dato ampio spazio al dibattito.
