Potential energy consumption reduced by up to 50%, find more at the RESSEEPE Webinar on “Materials for Energy Efficiency in Buildings”

RESSEEPE will bring together design and decision making tools, innovative building fabric manufacturers and a strong demonstration programme to demonstrate the improved building performance through retrofitting. The core idea of the RESSEEPE project is to technically advance, adapt, demonstrate and assess a number of innovative retrofit technologies. Reductions in the area of 50% will be achieved in terms of energy consumption. A systemic process will be also implemented that will allow the selection of the best possible retrofitting mix, customised to the needs of the building. Several remarkable innovative technologies and materials will be integrated in the retrofitting process:

o Envelope Retrofitting: Ventilated Facades, Aerogel-based Super-insulating mortar, Wooden Insulating Wall Panel and VIP Panel
o Integration of RES: PV Energy, Thermal Collectors
o Energy Storage Systems: Thermal storage and PCMs
o Nanotechnologies and smart materials: EC/PV Windows
o ICT: Strategies at building and district level
o Intelligent Building Controls: HVAC systems

The RESSEEPE technologies will be validated in three different demo-sites:

Coventry (UK)
Skellefteå (SE)
Barcelona (ES)

The seminar will disseminate the major results of RESSEEPE project and looks to develop new knowledge at EU level on the innovative retrofit technologies. It is addressed to researchers, teachers, architects, professionals and particularly at the doctoral students due to its seminar character. Professionals and Students will have recognised credits.

RESSEEPE Stakeholder Engagement Event

On 25th January 2017, the RESSEEPE project held a Stakeholder Engagement Event which was organised to present the RESSEEPE project to external members engaged in low-energy retrofit in Public buildings (designers, installers, constructors, researchers, public authorities, Directors of Estate Management and end-users).

The event commenced with welcomes followed by a presentation introducing the RESSEEPE project to the audience, which was present by Abdullahi Ahmed of Coventry University. This was followed by technology innovation and development, diagnosis methodology and economic analysis presented by Kassim Caratella of EXERGY.

After the introductions to the project were completed, each demo site owner presented the background of each demo site, including the technologies considered and installed at the demo site and the process behind the selection. Gustaf Ulander was the first demo site owner to present the Balderskolan Secondary School (COS) demo site. He was followed by Jaume Madrid from Hospital de Terrassa (CST) and Gabriel Ochoa Gimeno from Parc Tauli (CSP). Finally, Monica Mateo Garcia presented the Coventry University (CU) demo sites.

Following the presentation, the floor was opened up for a panel debate and discussion. Stakeholders were able to ask questions to the demo site owners regarding what had been presented. Following an open debate, the successful event was concluded.

RESSEEPE 42M Consortium Meeting

On the 23rd and 24th January 2017, the RESSEEPE project held its 42M meeting in Coventry, United Kingdom. All members of the consortium were present and attended the meeting.

The first afternoon of the meeting consisted of the making of the project video and individual technical meetings. Each technology provider participated in the creation of a short video to explain their technology and the implementation of it on the different demo sites. The video also includes the background of the project as well as the different aspects of the monitoring of the installations. The afternoon also consisted of a tour of the Sir John Laing building at Coventry University to show all partners the installations which are part of the RESSEEPE project.

The second and final day of the meeting was held on the 24th of January and was once again attended by all partners. The first order of the day was the welcomes, apologies and any notices which needed to be announced to the consortium. Following on from this was the review of the management and financial progress for the period between M36 and M42. Following on from this was the review of the work packages which commenced with WP9 which consisted of the scientific progress of the project. Subsequently, the other work packages from WP2 through to WP8 which are still in progress were covered by the different Work Package Leaders. The final day also included a demo site visit to the Richard Crossman building where the different technology installations were presented to all members of the consortium. The day concluded with the preparation for the final reporting and review.

RESSEEPE Stakeholder Engagement event – Low-energy retrofit in Public Building Tickets

The RESSEEPE project is pleased to invite you to this Stakeholder Engagement event on low-energy retrofit in Public Buildings.

The workshop is addressed to stakeholders engaged in low-energy retrofit in Public buildings (designers, installers, constructors, researchers, public authorities, Directors of Estate Management and end-users).

The event will involve presentations and discussions on low-energy retrofit of 5 demonstration public buildings in 3 EU countries, including Hospitals, University buildings and a Primary School. The demo-site presentations will show the specific process followed to implement technologies into each case study building. This will include: building and technology selection, decision making, information collection and management, stakeholder engagement, installation process and challenges and lessons learnt through the process.

RESSEEPE meeting in Brussels

Untitled

 

On the 11th and 12th July 2016, the RESSEEPE project held its 36M review meeting in Brussels, Belgium. All members of the consortium were present and attended the meeting.

The first day of the meeting consisted of reviewing the project progress. The first order of the day was the welcomes, apologies and any notices which needed to be announced to the consortium. This was then followed by the review of the management and financial progress for the period between M18 and M36. Once this was complete, WP9 was reviewed which consisted of the scientific progress of the project. Subsequently, the other work packages from WP2 through to WP8 were covered by the different Work Package Leaders of the consortium. After these Work Packages were discussed in great detail, the first day of the meeting was concluded.

The second and final day of the meeting was held on the 12th of July and was once again attended by all partners. This was the EC meeting which was held at the Covent Garden Building, Brussels. The consortium were required to present the current stage of the project to the EC Officer and PTA (Project Technical Assistant). To commence this meeting, the welcomes and introductions were held. This was then followed by the WP Scientific and Technical progress review of the 2nd period of the project. The Key Exploitable Results of the project were presented and discussed with the EC Officer and PTA. Following on from this, the results from the Work Packages for the period between M18 and M36 were presented, starting with WP2 and going through to WP8.

Once the Work Packages were covered, the Management Overview and Upcoming actions for the 3rd period (M36 – M48) were highlighted. This was the end of the EC Review meeting for the consortium and were awaiting the conclusions and feedback from the EC Officer and PTA.

The event concluded with the EC Officer and PTA providing their opinions and feedback on the progress of the project so far. Overall, the feedback for the current progress was mostly positive, with minor changes needed to be taken into consideration. The EC Officer and PTA were encouraged by the findings produced and seek the continuation of the project.
