Energy efficient and Cost competitive retrofitting solutions for Shopping buildings
The EcoShopping project aims to build a holistic retrofitting solution for commercial buildings to reduce primary energy consumption down to less than 80kWh/m2 per year and increase the share of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) more than 50% compared to the state of the art.
The approach will be systemic by developing:
- Novel thermal insulation solutions using cost effective materials to further reduce the thermal losses and lower the energy consumption.
- Easy to install and cascadable daylighting technologies based on the NLIS system to reduce energy billing and improve comfort.
- A HVAC Retrofitting systemic approach based on RES direct powered DC variable speed heat pump and harnessing the Building Thermal Mass for reducing the energy consumption.
- An integrated solution way based on the Intelligent Automation Unit (IAU) concept and Mobile Robot.
The project is co-funded by the European Union within the 7th Framework Programme
Duration: 48 months (September 2013 - August 2017)
