The webinar aims at providing a summary of the essential aspects that should be taken into account when replicating iBRoad across Europe. Deliberate efforts are required to scale up the concept into a widely accepted instrument, to benefit more people while at the same time anchoring renovation policies and programmes to a long-term perspective. During the webinar, we will unpack the challenges and enablers for successful design and implementation, and briefly unfold guiding steps to a feasibility study.

The project (planned for completion in 2019) is part of a study that compares the practical comparisons of different energy concepts for highly efficient, ecological and economically operated multi-family dwellings. One goal here is to achieve the lowest possible energy and heating demand in the operation of the building. For this purpose, different variants were already planned and selected for the construction, such as heating system and building shell according to the latest research findings.

This new residential complex in Tirol, completed in 2018, is a passive house construction with 20 condominiums, 19 underground parking spaces and 8 carport spaces. The structure is U-shaped and is divided, due to the slope, in a basement with underground parking, a ground floor and 4 other above-ground floors.   The outstandingly low levels of energy demand and consequential CO2 emissions have made it achieve the Bronze status of the Austrian klimaaktiv criteria.
