Energy efficiency technologies and materials

As for the last year, the Sustainable Places Conference (Cagliari, 5-7 June 2019) was the occasion for a working sessions of the H2020 project dealing with deep renovation of buildings.   This year, the topic of discussion was “Exploitation of Business Models for Deep Renovation”, as a key issue for ensuring the future implementation of the project results. The involved projects presented their approaches on exploitations in order to highlight potential synergies and strengths to be shared.

European researchers are developing a device that stores and uses solar energy to provide both hot water and mechanical ventilation for multifamily houses. Moreover, an app linked to the machine monitors the users’ energy consumption   Nowadays households wanting to switch to solar energy have to deal with variability over time. In addition, if they are part of a condominium, the ability to store solar energy in an apartment without taking up significant living space is a big issue.

Over the past few years a new trend has been spreading in Europe. The concept of smart cities has gained momentum in connection with the sustainable development of urban areas and, hence, the life quality of their inhabitants.   By means of using digital technologies as a vector to increase the efficiency of a large number of urban functions and services, several solutions are being developed and tested in the fields of Energy Efficiency, Mobility and ICT.

Historic buildings are defining elements of city centres but also responsible for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to reduce their energy demand, it is important to improve envelopes’ thermal transmittance without damaging the historic integrity of their façades by applying interior insulation.   Thus, a detailed planning is needed to guarantee that case-specific variables are well considered. In this study, a holistic performance-based evaluation method is developed.
