HAPPEN (Holistic APproach and Platform for the deep renovation of the med residential built ENvironment) is a project that develops and rolls out the MedZEB approach: a tailored, holistic, transparent and adaptive strategy aimed to foster the market uptake of the deep energy retrofitting of the Mediterranean residential built environment. The aim is to adapt the existing ZEB (=Zero Energy Building) approach to the Mediterranean area and to its specific climatic and socio-economic characteristics.


The MedZEB approach is based on the following principles:


  • TAILORED: aimed to provide  solutions dedicated to the Mediterranean markets
  • HOLISTIC:aimed to integrate the most relevant aspects of the retrofitting supply and value chain, such as engagement and training, optimal solutions, financing and regulation
  • TRANSPARENT: aimed to put on the market new tools for enhancing investors’ trust
  • ADAPTIVE: aimed to enhance “added values” for the retrofitting, such as well-being, social relations, optimal use of resources, district scale approach, smart integration, etc.
