Researchers in Europe are developing a new kind of prefabricated energy efficient building façades, equipped with special insulation and solar panels.   These solutions are built far from the construction site, in an industrial environment, and can therefore be installed quickly and painlessly for homeowners or tenants

The general objective of EduFootprint Project is to better manage, plan and monitor the energy consumption in public buildings in the Mediterranean area.   Specifically, EduFootprint aims to reach this aim working focused in public school buildings with an innovative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, considering not just direct energy impacts of buildings (consumption), but also indirect ones (public procurement or general human awareness and behaviour).

Using 3D modelling software, layering it with data, and working very closely with all partners in construction and engineering projects is critical if European companies are to survive in the challenging and rapidly changing market.   Building information modelling (BIM) is a digital information management approach. It means a more efficient use of resources, more effective communications and therefore collaboration within the partnership, greater flexibility and improved long-term planning.

Il settore finanziario ha un ruolo chiave nel guidare gli investimenti verso tecnologie e imprese più sostenibili, finanziare una crescita di lungo termine e contribuire alla creazione di un'economia circolare, a basse emissioni di carbonio e resiliente.   La Commissione Europea ha lanciato un Action Plan sulla Finanza Sostenibile con l’obiettivo di orientare gli investimenti finanziari in tale direzione.

Statistically, 40 percent of energy consumption and 36 percent of emissions come from buildings.   Although this has prompted energy efficiency to become one of the EU’s top priorities and led the EU to acknowledge that buildings are key to achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95 percent by 2050, it is not always easy to encourage deep renovation.

This case study represents a rehabilitation and energy renovation of a 1970 condominium. It consists of a small joint ownership of 23 lots in Sevran (in Paris suburbs) as part of the "OPAH Quartier Rougemont" with the operator OZONE.

ETIP PV is highly supportive of the EU’s interest in following a pathway that leads to a max -1.5°C warmer world and encourages it to put in place the policies that will achieve this as cost-effectively as possible. This means acting soon because zero net-carbon emissions are required by 2050.   The EU targets will be achieved with a fully decarbonised and expanded power sector that provides services in heating and cooling, transport and possibly chemical feedstocks.
