Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The Eu­ro­pean Tech­nol­ogy & In­no­va­tion Plat­form on Re­new­able Heat­ing and Cool­ing (RHC ETIP) or­gan­ises the event 100% RHC for a Sus­tain­able Fu­ture, the op­por­tu­nity for RHC ex­perts to learn, net­work and pre­sent their RHC in­no­v­a­tive pro­jects.   Why join­ing? The RHC ETIP gath­ers in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives, re­searchers and pol­icy mak­ers to net­work and ex­change their ex­per­tise on RHC in­no­v­a­tive pro­jects, chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties to thrive in the long term.

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.

The challenge The EC estimates that about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient.   At the same time, only 0.4-1.2% of the building stock renovated each year (depending on the country) [1].

Much of our building stock was designed and built before global warming, environmental protection and recycling became foremost in our minds and behaviours. It represents around 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions   Revamping building envelopes, making façades and roofs more energy-efficient, is a key measure in retrofitting existing stock. Combined with a smart energy management system, building envelopes can slash energy consumption while improving indoor comfort.

One-stop-shops (OSS) are easily accessible tools for overcoming market fragmentation on both demand and supply side.   They can offer holistic renovation solutions for building owners, covering evaluation of energy use, advice on interventions and access to finance and contractors.

Climate change is driving Europe to transform its energy sector. As we transition from a fossil-based to a zero-carbon economy in the next few decades, we will use more renewable energy, and the electricity we generate won’t come from a central plant. Instead, it will come from multiple, decentralised renewable energy sources that are near to load demands. But is the existing networking capable of hosting this increase in capacity? And how would the electrical grids of the future work?
