The estimated average gap between calculated and actual energy performance of the European building stock is 25% for energy performance and 1.5% for comfort performance (as scored by building occupants). Comprehensive research has shown that poorly commissioned and operated building management systems are often responsible for this gap, generally caused by the lack of appropriate and coherent Quality Management Systems (QMS) for building performance.

For a couple of decades, many in the real estate industry have been trying to make buildings “green,” replacing conventionally made materials with sustainable ones and installing energy-efficient systems. Buildings have a heavy environmental footprint, so the upshot of all this tinkering has been structures that are less harmful to the planet.   Now some developers are going further with “deep green” buildings that are actually good for it.

Andreas Gyr remembers his first car fondly: a 1982 Ford Escort, which had the gas parts ripped out and replaced with 17 golf cart batteries and an electric motor. “It had about a 15-mile range and it topped out at like 58 miles per hour,” Andreas remembers. “I’d carry an extension cord around and plug it into friends’ wall outlets to make it home.” It might have been inconvenient, but it made him excited about the future. “It was different, it was hopeful, we charged it with solar panels!” he says.

The case is one of the demonstration sites where the technologies developed within the H2020 project BUILDHEAT have been installed. The building is a large multifamily house in a small quarter in the outskirts of Zaragoza. It has 53 dwellings of two main sizes (i.e. 85 m² and 55 m²) distributed in 5 staircases on 4 floors. The building was constructed in 1988, is owned by Zaragoza Vivienda, the social housing Agency of Zaragoza, and is used for sheltered housing.

The idea is to introduce energy saving measures in 60,000 households per year until 2030, local media reported. The government will subsidize up to 85% of each investment while the maximum amount per household will be EUR 50,000, according to the Institute of Energy for South-East Europe.   The start of the program is planned for this fall, while similar measures could be introduced for public buildings, tourism, and industry in the next phase.
