The session is organized in the framework of the RENEW-SCHOOL project ( supported by the European Commission, with the aim of retrofitting a great amount of school buildings to highest nearly Zero Energy Buildings level, by promoting appropriate tools and measures, help to downsize the energy use significantly as well as create and secure comfortable conditions for the pupils and teachers. Sustainable school renovation actions base on following three focus points promoted by the project:

  • Improvement of the building’s envelope by coating it with insulated prefabricated timber modules including wooden frame windows, solar shading and ventilation components.
  • Improvement of the indoor environment quality (IEQ) by ventilating, passive cooling and daylight upgrading the classrooms.
  • Improvement of the energy generation on site by using active renewable energy sources, beside the passive gains, integrated in the school buildings.


The webinar is organized in cooperation with the
