H2020 projects

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 digitalisation of the design and construction process of the European built environment is remodelling the way of work inside the whole value chain. The adaptation to this new work environment is a challenge to be faced by all stakeholders across the construction chain, affecting professionals such as architects and engineers, as well as contractors and construction workers. BIM could be regarded as the driving force of this transformation.

What’s new in District Heating Systems (DHs)? DHs have traditionally been designed to be operated with central energy production facilities and a variety of distributed consumption locations (dwellings, tertiary buildings, etc). In some cases, heat is partially obtained from local industrial waste heat streams, leading to almost de-carbonized heating energy supplies.

The aim of this 4-year project is to show that it is possible to transform nearly-zero energy buildings into positive energy buildings (PEBs). This means that a building which is producing the majority of the renewable energy it uses itself, after refurbishment, will be producing more energy than it actually needs. The technologies will be tested in 4 climatic zones, EnergyVille/VITO investigates the scale-up of buildings into PEBs and is involved in the Belgian demo set up together with Cordium, the social housing company in Hasselt.

The CRAVEzero pinboard is a structured framework organizing all needed information and tools to build reliable low life cycle cost nZEBs. It comprises all major results and outcomes. It thereby is an interactive support web tool for most of the involved stakeholders (developer, design team, advisors, general contractor, suppliers/sub-contractors, investor and financer). The pinboard enables the organization of data and information in a user-friendly and understandable way.

Most of the barriers to energy renovation are non-technical, and financing is one of the main barriers. To deepen this issue, this year, at the Sustainable Places Conference (Cagliari, 5-7 June 2019) the topic of discussion was “Exploitation of Business Models for Deep Renovation” as a key issue for ensuring the future implementation of the project results.

District heating is one of the most energy efficient systems to deliver heat in urban environments. Despite this fact, energy market requires a conversion of actual DH concept. This is the main objective of RELaTED concept, that will provide an innovative system of decentralized Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) network solution that can pave the way for expanding and modernizing existing district heating networks.
