The EU project on smart districts has unveiled its energy saving achievements after its renovation works in three residential areas
Post date: 15 Jun 2018
One of the main objectives of 4RinEU is to improve the energy performances of existing buildings through the renovation of their envelope. Therefore, within the project, a new concept of façade is being developed, namely a timber prefabricated multifunctional façade. These façade elements do not replace the existing façade, but they are added externally to the existing façade to increase its performances.

From Croatia to Ireland, projects are leveraging local investment, by combining European funding with innovative business models, and proving that energy efficiency investment is a win-win, for citizens and local governments alike.

A Smart City is a city where life has become very easy.
Bus tickets can be bought directly from an App while private vehicles are replaced by cars and bikes shared by the public. Buses and cars don’t run on gas or other conventional fuels but are powered by electricity. Charging infrastructures are disseminated all around the city, so there is no need to go to the gas tank anymore! Consequences of all these improvements in mobility are the reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions and the reduction of the door-to-door journey time.

Are you planning to renovate a building? Would you like to combine energy efficiency improvements with architectural additions? The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose which you can test for free.
Case study buildings should either have planned energy renovations or have already undergone renovations. Tools and analytical methods developed by the project team will be applied to each case study building, providing valuable technical, financial and regulatory outcomes to aid the decision-making process.
