This is the first block of housing certified in Spain built in 2017 under the Passivhaus standard, and therefore has a demand for heating below 15kWh / m2a, and a heating load of 10W / m2.   This implies that a floor of 75m2 will have a heating load of only 750W, so with a hair dryer there would be enough to heat two houses.   To achieve this the following principles have been applied:

Concept and Objectives:   Do European consumers pay attention to energy labels when they buy an electric appliance, a car or a house?  What information are they looking for? How important is energy consumption in their decisions?     This is what the CONSEED research project aims to find out through surveys and field trials among households and various economic sectors across Europe.

The HEART toolkit incorporates different components and technologies, which cooperate to transform an existing building into a smart building.   In developing this toolkit, the project advances and improves energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies in buildings across Europe. Particularly in Central and Southern Europe where climate change is leading to increased electricity consumption both during summer and winter seasons.   How does HEART contribute?

The successful story of the first EU funded CLEAR project (IEE 13-588) – enabling Consumers to Learn about, Engage with and Adopt Renewable energy technologies - continued from September 2017 with Clear 2.0. It actively guides consumers through all the stages leading to the purchase of domestic renewable and low-carbon energy technologies. It has the objective to enable consumers to become more aware, active players, to save money and to easily become “prosumers”.
