The EU’s old residential building stock requires retrofitting to become energy efficient. In turn, this will reduce energy consumption and costs. However, retrofitting is an expensive procedure and new innovative financial solutions are needed to accelerate the transformation of homes into energy-efficient structures. The EU-funded FITHOME project will propose a new financial instrument and new advanced digital methods for retrofitting processes, including flow management and quality assurance.

Västerås’ old industrial harbour is being transformed into a new neighbourhood with nature at its heart. It is therefore fitting that Sweden’s tallest wooden-framed building (as of 2018), Kajstaden, sits in the entrance to the new development. All load-bearing elements of Kajstaden – its walls, floors, beams, and roof – are constructed from locally-sourced CLT, using 3m tall panels that reduce the need for cutting on site, and allow for all nine storeys to have high ceilings, creating spacious and light-filled living spaces.

An article by Sylvia Croese, University of the Witwatersrand and Ntombini Marrengane, University of Cape Town.   The African continent is fast on its way to becoming one of the world’s largest urban hubs. This has spawned growing interest in African urbanisation by both researchers and policy makers. But a great deal of the knowledge –and policy that stems from it– doesn’t adequately respond to the challenges faced by those who govern and are governed on the ground.
