Panel buildings built by industrialised technology are an illustrative problem of Hungary and Eastern Europe. These multi-family buildings do not meet current standards because they have huge maintenance cost, out-of-date heating-system, mouldy walls and draughty windows, as well as social problems.
The main objective of the MLEI-SOLANOVA project is the integrated energy retrofit of 14 panel buildings using the SOLANOVA technique.

The Interreg Europe REBUS project (Renovation for Energy efficient BUildingS) aims to improve the capacity of public authorities in European regions to undertake efficient renovation works of their public building stock, thus saving energy and public resources. The huge potential for energy savings in the public building stock is hampered in each phase of the local authority energy renovation process: planning, implementing and monitoring. These problems all stem from a basic need in public authorities: to raise awareness and build skills on energy related issues among civil servants...

Energy efficient and Cost competitive retrofitting solutions for Shopping buildings
The EcoShopping project aims to build a holistic retrofitting solution for commercial buildings to reduce primary energy consumption down to less than 80kWh/m2 per year and increase the share of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) more than 50% compared to the state of the art.
The approach will be systemic by developing:
