Last 12 – 14 February 2014, the R2CITIES project consortium gathered in Madrid, Spain, for its first progress meeting. The purpose of this ambitious four-year FP7 project is to develop and demonstrate replicable strategies for designing, constructing and managing large-scale district renovation projects for achieving nearly zero energy cities. These results will open the way for new refurbishments on a European scale within the framework of new urban energy planning strategies.

Renovations of entire districts, designed to reach near zero-energy consumption, need to be replicable if they are to be widely adopted The overall building stock represents about 40% of the EU’s energy consumption. It also produces about 36% of its total CO2 emissions. Besides, new buildings only account for 1% to 1.5% of the building stock. This means that renovation of existing buildings could be relevant for energy saving and greenhouse gases reduction.

CONCERTO cities and communities have shown that existing buildings can cut their CO2 emissions, at acceptable costs, by up to 50%. CONCERTO does this by implementing renewable energy sources, innovative technologies and an integrated approach.CONCERTO projects and sites demonstrate energy solutions for smart cities and communities.CONCERTO projects and sites are role models for energy efficiency in buildings and communities. Their functional, sustainable solutions act as source of inspiration for innovative replication in other continents.

"If you can’t measure it .... you can't manage it" – this might be an old management saying, but it's one that Volker Stelzer would agree with. As a scientist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), Stelzer is responsible for developing recommendations for construction professionals from the many individual CONCERTO project experiences in the CONCERTO Premium meta-project.
