demonstration buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The case is one of the demonstration sites where the technologies developed within the H2020 project BUILDHEAT have been installed. The building is a large multifamily house in a small quarter in the outskirts of Zaragoza. It has 53 dwellings of two main sizes (i.e. 85 m² and 55 m²) distributed in 5 staircases on 4 floors. The building was constructed in 1988, is owned by Zaragoza Vivienda, the social housing Agency of Zaragoza, and is used for sheltered housing.

Pilot or demonstration buildings are made in order to test new innovative technologies or to demonstrate that a defined level of high building energy performance is possible in reality. These buildings are show cases that allow experts and the general public to visit and see technologies in practice. If the projects would stop after the design and the construction, the real test i.e. the energy performance in practice would not be taken. For some tasks like meeting the predicted energy consumptions, monitoring could be simply based on the analysis of the energy bills.

The scientific accompanying research team "EnergieWendeBauen" of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has published a new combined monitoring guideline for the field energy in buildings and city quarters, specifically for the research initiatives EnOB and EnEff:Stadt. The monitoring guideline contains besides minimum requirements for measurements in demonstration buildings and quarters within EnOB and EnEff:Stadt also information on support tools, that facilitate the administration and analysis of monitoring data.
