Energy retrofitting in Public Buildings RESSEEPE Final Conference

The aim of the conference is to discuss and exchange experiences about the present and future
of low-energy refurbishment, focusing on innovative technologies for low-carbon refurbishment and
the barriers for effective energy efficient retrofit and occupants' comfort.

The RESSEEPE project, in co-operation with other 7 European funded projects and the ECTP, are pleased to invite you to the workshop “From research to market – innovative technologies and ICT solutions for energy efficiency” that will be held in BAU exhibition, Munich, Germany on 19 January 2017.



EcoBuild 2015

Picture EcoBuild 2015

Between the 3rd and 5th of March 2015, EcoBuild held their annual event at ExCel London. EcoBuild UK 2015 is the UK’s leading trade event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment.

EcoBuild showcases the future of design, construction and the built environment. This event demonstrates, with 1,300 exhibitors and practical installations inside the arena, the latest developments in sustainable construction. The event also offered more than 100 free seminars with over 600 highly regarded speakers in attendance.

The EcoBuild provided the perfect platform to showcase the developments of the RESSEEPE project to the industry and other potential stakeholders who may have limited knowledge about the project. With Coventry University (CU) already exhibiting at the event, an invitation was sent to Exergy (EXE) to accompany CU and help disseminate the RESSEEPE projects current progress which was duly accepted.

The Global Conference on Energy and Sustainable Development conference took place between 24th and 26th February 2015 in Coventry, UK. This event was organised by The World Energy and Environment Technology Ltd with the conference providing a platform for world-wide researchers and specialists and also those who are interested in learning about energy and sustainable development.

The conference covered several topics ranging from renewable energy resources and energy system analysis to Sustainability methodologies and Sustainable development for innovation.


1st RESSEEPE Workshop

Picture EcoBuild 2015

On the 28th of October 2014, the first RESSEEPE workshop was organized in Barcelona, Spain as part of the World Sustainable Building Conference 2014.

The three-day-conference aimed to encourage the uptake of adequate answers to the challenges, social and environmental, which the building sector faces.

The main goal of the workshop was to present the RESSEEPE technologies and demo sites to external stakeholders coming from different professional backgrounds.


WORKSHOP: ‘Exploitation Strategy Seminar’

June 25, 2015, Sabadell, Spain.

This Exploitation Strategy Seminar was a one-day workshop with the following objectives:

• Achieving a common understanding about intellectual property (“IP”) and exploitation.

• Making the problems, expectations (including IP ownership expectations) and motivation of each participant transparent.

• Determining actions to reduce risks and define responsibilities and timelines to enable exploitation of the results.

• Identifying factors (usually non-technical), which could represent a risk to the exploitation of the project results.


27 Project partners attended this seminar.
A final report of the seminar was done.

WORKSHOP: ‘WS04 Innovative Retrofitting Activities’

SUSTAINABLE PLACES 2015, September 16-18 2015, Savona, Italy.

This workshop was developed in partnership with Three European Union funded projects which include RESSEEPE, A2PBEER and BRICKER. All the 3 projects are district scale retrofit project with elements of demonstration activities. Redondo Pierre from Polylogis presented the ethos of the project and the progress so far on behalf of RESEEPEE project. The main objective of the workshop was to present the work carried out in the projects mentioned above towards reducing the building energy consumption in public and identifying affordable and sustainable retrofit solutions as well.

The workshop was chaired by Guilia Barbano (IES) and Evangelos Kaltsis (APINTECH) acted as the rapporteur. The workshop was also attended by other RESEEPEE partners, Abdullahi Ahmed (CU), Patricia Pérez Rodríguez (OHL), Elena Arredondo Lillo (OHL), Marta Garcia (OHL), Matthias Schuss (TUW). The three projects presented their ethos and the progress so far. The fact that the three projects are very similar in terms of their ethos (innovative district scale retrofit) and methodology (prototyping and demonstration activities), made this workshop a very important platform for sharing ideas and ways to avoid potential future risks in project delivery and exploitation.

The workshop was attended by about 30 participants from academia and industry and around 100 leaflets were distributed. The presentations have been publicized on the conference website which has the potential to reach a wider audience within the EU community.

WORKSHOP: 'New technologies for retrofit and energy efficient building: barriers and opportunities for achieving real life integration/performance'

INDTECH2016 (Industrial Technologies Conference), Amsterdam, June 22-24, 2016.

Abstract and Session program accepted. The workshop will be chaired by Gustaf Ulander (COS) and Monica Mateo/Danny McGough (CU) will act as rapporteur.

The workshop will focus on the existing barriers to new technologies in retrofitting, both from the technology development and the building management perspective. The session will include 4 short presentations of other projects showing examples of technologies and concrete cases that are important for retrofitting and energy efficient building.​

The duration of the workshop will be 75 minutes. The structure and timeframe of the panel discussion is the following:

5’ Introduction – moderator. Gustaf Ulander

15’ New technologies for retrofit: barriers and opportunities for achieving real life integration/performance – Gustaf Ulander and Dr. Monica Mateo.

40’ Innovative passive and active technologies. Results and challenges in the implementation and management process. 1) Retrofitting of existing shopping centres - Dr. Matthias Haase 2) Hit2Gap: Highly Innovative building control Tools Tackling the energy performance GAP - Dr Andrea Costa 3) AEROPAN: Nano-technological panel for the thermal insulation of the building structures in the shortest possible space - Dr. Alberto Donelli 4) High Performance Tools for Building Energy Management System - Bogdan Onose

15’ Questions and Answers – Dialogue with the audience


Proposal accepted to co-host an exhibition booth with ECTP for BAU 2017 (World’s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems), January 16 –21, 2017, Munich.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under Grant Agreement no: 609377
