The E2VENT system that we will develop is an external thermal refurbishment solution with external cladding and air cavity (fig.1).   The distinctive feature of this system is the Smart Modular Heat Recovery Unit allowing us to recover energy from the extracted air while performing the air renewal using double flux heat exchanger in the air cavity (fig.2).

Across Europe, 90 million children and young people spend their weekdays in schools, colleges and universities. More than one in three of the working population is office-based.   And every year, 90 million patients spend more than a week on average in hospitals. Yet the impact of the indoor environment on people's health, well-being and performances is not well understood or adequately addressed in EU.

    With more than 80% of the heat delivered to buildings coming from obsolete, inefficient and polluting boilers, decarbonising this sector is crucial. A steep increase in the current 20% share of renewables in heating and cooling is required, together with improving the efficiencies of our heating and cooling systems, in order to achieve the Paris Agreement goals.
