Haugerudsenteret (Oslo, Norway) – Our first success story. Energy performance to be assessed
The Norwegian demo case, located in Oslo, is the first example of a successful implementation of 4RinEU methodology. The renovation works took place in the second half of 2018 and lasted only eight weeks, during which the tenants kept living in their dwellings.

Most of the barriers to energy renovation are non-technical, and financing is one of the main barriers. To deepen this issue, this year, at the Sustainable Places Conference (Cagliari, 5-7 June 2019) the topic of discussion was “Exploitation of Business Models for Deep Renovation” as a key issue for ensuring the future implementation of the project results.

In the 4RinEU project, technologies constitute one of the three pillars of the project. In particular, the Sensible Building Data Handler constitutes a technology aimed at gathering, organising and preparing for analysis the large amount of data that is needed in the various phases of a deep renovation project. A major part of the Sensible Building Data Handler is the collection of monitored data, both for the pre-renovation state of the building and the post-renovation performance.

As part of the dissemination tasks of 4RinEU, training and skills development is a substantial component. Particularly, such tasks are devoted to developing the necessary skills for a new generation of practitioners in the energy retrofit of buildings.
Accordingly, last Spring, researchers from Eurac held a two-day training session on the software Early-RENo last 16-17 May 2019.

One of the main objectives of 4RinEU is to improve the energy performances of existing buildings through the renovation of their envelope. Therefore, within the project, a new concept of façade is being developed, namely a timber prefabricated multifunctional façade. These façade elements do not replace the existing façade, but they are added externally to the existing façade to increase its performances.

The 4RinEU (Robust and Reliable technology concepts and business models for triggering deep Renovation of Residential buildings in EU) project, launched in October 2016, will define robust, cost-effective, tailorable deep renovation technology packages supported by usable methodologies, feeding into reliable business models. It will minimise failures in design and implementation, manage different stages of the deep renovation process, from the preliminary audit up to the end-of-life, and provide information on energy, comfort, users’ impact, and investment performance.
