Nottingham is one of the 5 pilot sites who will experiment 5th generation district heating and cooling (5GDHC) through the D2Grids project.   Positive findings from the project’s feasibility study indicate that a 5GDHC project sourced from mine water is likely to be technically viable: exciting times as 5GDHC becomes a reality for this demonstrator! Several drilling locations providing access to mine waters close to the future network

Concept:   Vulnerable communities are severely affected by natural disasters. A model for the estimation of the impact of disasters and for planning mitigation policies is essential.   The EU-funded MulHaRes project will develop a decision model to support multi-hazard resistance of residential buildings to floods and landslides provoked by heavy rainfalls.

  Concept: The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is crucial for the decarbonisation of the building stock in Europe.   The technology integrates solar elements into buildings to generate electricity.
