Building Energy Efficiency for Massive market UPtake
BEEM-UP was a Public Private Partnership collaborative project that aimed to demonstrate the economic, social and technical feasibility of retrofitting initiatives for drastically reducing the energy demand in existing residential buildings, and lay the ground for massive market uptake of such initiatives.
BEEM-UP involved key expertise to implement and demonstrate innovative building and energy management approaches with the overall aim to improve energy efficiency and obtain better indoor comfort conditions. The project took an integral approach to overcome technical, social and economic barriers through three ambitious retrofitting projects in Sweden, the Netherlands and France.
The main objective of the BEEM-UP Project was to develop and demonstrate cost-effective and high performance renovation of existing residential multi-family buildings, drastically reducing the energy demand up to 75%. These objectives were achieved by:
- developing a multi-disciplinary Project Team, including Consultants, Researchers, Industrial Suppliers, Contractors and, overall, the Building Owners;
- developing a common methodology to select the optimal scenario considering all KPIs and stakeholder´s interests; and
- planning, executing, supervising and controlling the 3 retrofitting projects, paying special attention to the tenants as key stakeholders of the processes.
Project duration: January 2011 to December 2014.
