This white paper, released by the Fraunhofer, Institut für Bauphysik – IBP, pinpoints key findings from a large literature screening of the impact of European indoor environments on health and performance in homes and schools.
The present report aims to support the refurbishment of existing sport buildings through step by step renovation towards nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB).
The report presents: - the status of nZEB definitions for sport buildings at EU level - the key steps to be considered by sport owners as well as sport facility managers, for achieving nearly zero energy sport buildings - specific energy performance indicators to help sport owners, sport facility managers as well as energy consultants to evaluate the energy performance of the buildings
This report from the Keep on Track! project is the latest edition of an annual publication which has been released each year from 2013 until 2015, monitoring the progress of renewable energy sources (RES) towards the 2020 targets, both at EU and Member State level.
The report examines in detail the deployment of RES in three sectors (electricity, heating and cooling, transport), providing for each Member State and for the EU as a whole:
The ZEMedS’s project (Zero Energy MEDiterranean Schools) is a 3-year project co-funded by the European Commission within the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme (IEE) that promotes the renovation of schools in a Mediterranean climate to be nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (nZEB).
The main goal of ZEMedS is to increase the knowledge and know-how on the nZEB renovation of schools in Mediterranean climates and give support to several new initiatives on the nZEB refurbishment of schools in the region.
EffiBUILDING.eu is a database of novel materials and products as well as prototypes within the area of energy efficient products & solutions for buildings. It is also an overview and benchmarking tool of the latest state of the art components and systems available on the market and the latest research results and prototypes.
EffiBUILDING is for Architects and Building Technologists to be used during the design phase. The EffiBUILDING data are also applicable for building modelling tools.
The Smart UrbaNServIces for Higher eNergy Efficiency (SUNSHINE) project delivers innovative digital services, interoperable with existing geographic web-service infrastructures, supporting improved energy efficiency at the urban and building level. Specifically, SUNSHINE delivers a smart service platform accessible from both a web-based client and an App for smartphones and tablets.
This publication, released by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), explains how buildings are lit and provides energy efficient solutions to ensure that buildings provide a healthy, comfortable and productive working environment. The information provided is intended for building operators, designers and employers allowing them to demonstrate compliance with Regulation 8, Lighting, in The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
This publication, released by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), explains the requirements of temperature in the workplace and provides energy efficient solutions to ensure that buildings provide a healthy, comfortable and productive working environment.
This brochure, released by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Energy in Buildings and Community (EBC) Programme Annex 56, compiles a selection of 9 successfully realised demonstration projects within the project’s partner countries. The report underlines successful solutions and presents general findings, similarities and differences emerging out of these selected examples of buildings located in Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland.
