This event aims at exploring if and how building volume extensions (including renewable energy sources) can help to finance deep building retrofits. Different financing options will be discussed and multiple benefits and potential advantages of AdoRes (added volume and renewables), where an expansion in volume can increase property income and the associated asset value as well as deliver greater returns, will be presented.

Researchers at the MEET Battery Research Centre at Münster University have developed a new energy storage system based on dual-ion battery technology. Its long service life is promising for stationary applications. The focus of the development was on cost-effective battery systems. The key difference to lithium-ion batteries is the purpose of the electrolyte. Chemist Dr. Tobias Placke from MEET explains further that, “In the lithium cell, it serves only as a transport medium for lithium ions between both electrolytes. In the dual-ion cell, however, it is an active material.”

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 These multi-family buildings do not meet current standards because they have huge maintenance cost, out-of-date heating-system, mouldy walls and draughty windows, as well as social problems.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.
