Are you planning to renovate a building? Would you like to combine energy efficiency improvements with architectural additions? The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose which you can test for free.
Case study buildings should either have planned energy renovations or have already undergone renovations. Tools and analytical methods developed by the project team will be applied to each case study building, providing valuable technical, financial and regulatory outcomes to aid the decision-making process.

There is enough waste energy produced in the EU to heat the EU’s entire building stock.
Waste heat recovery from energy-intensive industry and cogeneration is slowly picking up in the EU. But did you know that even the excess heat produced in a metro system could heat houses? And did you know that supermarkets, data centres and sewage systems also produce excess heat that can be used?

Commissioning i byggeriet er en proaktiv dialog- og kvalitetsstyringsproces, der fokuserer på totaløkonomi og installationernes samspil. Commissioning-processen sikrer det lavest mulige energiforbrug, et godt indeklima og velfungerende rammer for brugernes aktiviteter.
Målet med vejledningen er, at inspirere byggeriets parter til at bruge commissioning til at sikre byggeriets kvalitet og en energieffektiv drift.
Vejledningen er delt op i to dele:

Denne standard beskriver anvendelsen af commissioning-processen
Commissioning-processen er et værktøj til at sikre at krav til et byggeri opfyldes i alle byggeriets faser og ind i driftsfasen.
Standarden er beregnet til brug i forbindelse med byggeri og ved større ombygninger herunder energirenoveringer. Større ombygninger omfatter bl.a. ombygninger, der medfører revision af det fremtidige energi- eller driftsbudget eller som har et højt indhold af teknisk indhold, som fx:

You probably don’t know where Sonderborg is exactly, although by the look of the name you would situate it somewhere in Scandinavia. Remourban project coordinator Miguel García knows exactly where this Light house town lies as he took part in the SmartEnCity conference week held there in early October.

For building owners, the renovation process can be a hassle, shaped by the ambiguity of the measures to implement. Uncertainty is one of the reasons why the renovation rate continues to linger around 1% and private investments remain limited. Achieving the full market potential of renovation calls for a paradigm shift, where a more service-oriented supply-side together with a deeper awareness on the demand-side play key roles.
