Second BuildHeat Newsletter – February 2017

21 Feb 2017

Welcome to this second newsletter from the project BuildHeat, a four-year initiative to elaborate a set of reliable, energy efficient and affordable retrofit solutions for multifamily houses.

At the conclusion of its first year and half of activity, the BuildHeat project is ramping up and we can be confident that the next year will mark a leap forward in our technical progress.

During the first 18 months, most of the technological development has happened: the project partners have deeply collaborated to the development of the multifunctional façade solution including passive and active elements as pipes, ducts, solar thermal and PV panels. The heating, cooling and ventilation units that are going to be tested at the three demo sites have been also developed and prototype units have been delivered.

As this point in time, all our demonstration sites are engaging in preliminary monitoring and design activities prior to the renovation that will take place starting this summer.

Other partners have been making headway in putting together the solutions for the financing of the demonstration measures to be set up, trying to get public and private funding together.

In parallel to the more technical activities, the technology providers have already started elaborating strategies for the business-exploitation of their products on the basis of the preliminary findings.

In this newsletter we present the Salford demo site with an article and 2 interviews to our partners in the area.
