FP7 CommONEnergy

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The Integrated Design Process library (IDP) library is publicly distributed on the CommONEnergy website as a free excel-based online repository available to help shopping centre owners and managers in planning mall retrofitting, providing a quick overview of the best solution-sets matching the building features and context. The structure allows:

This supermarket which has approximately 1,200 m2 dedicated to the sales area is located in a residential zone close to the centre of Modena. The building underwent renovation during the summer 2016 before reopening in September. Around 50 workers were onsite per day during the 14 weeks the works lasted. The total requalification cost (supermarket and gallery) was 2.5 M €.

The economic assessment tool allows estimating the energy saving potential and economic benefits of retrofitting shopping centers. The tool targets managers and owners and allows entering relevant information about their centre. It provides quick information on the energy consumption and options to reduce energy demand, CO2-emissions, environmental impacts and provides an economic assessment of the investments.

One of the methods to reach the CommONEnergy aim to re-conceptualize shopping malls through deep retrofitting is the development of a systemic approach made of innovative technologies and solution-sets. This report  (Deliverable 3.6 from the CommONEnergy Project) focuses in particular on smart coating materials and aims at developing a multi-functional formulation leading to higher energy savings.

One of the goals of CommONEnergy is to define drivers for retrofitting, as the basis to develop energy retrofitting concepts. In order to define those drivers, shopping centres need to be analysed not only as buildings for retail activity but also as places for social interaction with typical functional patterns. Understanding these functional patterns allows identifying relevant performance indicators, which are key when retrofitting a shopping centre.
