This survey is proposed in the context of the project “RINNO: An augmented intelligence-enabled stimulating framework for deep energy renovation delivering occupant-centered innovations” funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 892071.
The RINNO project envisions to deliver a framework solution that will help drastically accelerating the rate of deep renovation in EU building stock reaching an ambitious annual renovation rate of 3.5%.
The ultimate goal of the project is to develop, validate and demonstrate an operational interface with augmented intelligence and an occupant-centered approach that will streamline and facilitate the whole lifecycle of building renovation (planning-design, retrofitting, monitoring).
This concept has at its foundation, a set of cost-attractive, environmentally friendly, multi-functional and easily applicable building-related innovations.
According to data from the EU building stock observatory, around 77% of the residential buildings have been constructed before 1990 and roughly 11% of Europe’s population still experiences energy poverty due to poor building quality, especially thermal efficiency.
The EC estimates, renovation rate of 3% annually would be needed to accomplish the Union’s energy efficiency (EE) and environmental ambitions in a cost-effective manner, but with current renovation rates (0.4-1.2% depending on the country) it will take more than 100 years to renovate all the EU building stock.
This calls for radically new approaches to deep energy renovation, along with novel technologies, processes and business models addressing the whole construction and renovation cycle.
This survey aims at gathering information about the common practices and the main concerns of the stakeholders involved in the whole renovation value chain, the current barriers identified in the renovation processes and how which technology scenarios could help to overcome them.
These subjects will be addressed through specific analyses by type of stakeholder and for each stage of the process in order to reach conclusions adjusted to the distinguishing needs and requirements.
RINNO aims at performing an analysis that engages all stakeholders across the value chain in order to define and evaluate key requirements for the whole value chain.
In this sense, the RINNO consortium encompasses a broad construction stakeholders’ community, for liaison activities with construction-related entities that might be interested in the results and findings of the RINNO project. (https://rinno-h2020.eu/results/)
