Building operation, monitoring, energy management

The general objective of EduFootprint Project is to better manage, plan and monitor the energy consumption in public buildings in the Mediterranean area.   Specifically, EduFootprint aims to reach this aim working focused in public school buildings with an innovative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, considering not just direct energy impacts of buildings (consumption), but also indirect ones (public procurement or general human awareness and behaviour).

Using 3D modelling software, layering it with data, and working very closely with all partners in construction and engineering projects is critical if European companies are to survive in the challenging and rapidly changing market.   Building information modelling (BIM) is a digital information management approach. It means a more efficient use of resources, more effective communications and therefore collaboration within the partnership, greater flexibility and improved long-term planning.

The UK "stands no chance" of slashing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, nor meeting its interim carbon budgets, unless the government takes urgent action to improve the energy efficiency standards of buildings and households, a group of MPs has warned.   After carrying out an inquiry into the issue, MPs on the Committee found the rate of efficiency measures - such as insulation and low energy lighting - installed in UK homes under government schemes has plummeted by 95 per cent since 2012.

The Passive House standard was defined and put into practice for the first time in Darmstadt in 1991 almost three decades ago. Next October 2019, the 23rd International Passive House Conference will take place for the first time outside Europe, in Gaobeidian, China. Before that, in May this year the passive-house pioneering city of Heidelberg hosted the Better Building!
