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.

During the event, Coventry University had set up several demonstration and presentation times at the exhibition space to provide visitors, guests and other exhibitors an insight into the RESSEEPE project and the purpose of the FP7 project.

The presentation consisted of the introduction of the project by showing the official RESSEEPE project video followed by a more in depth look at the demo sites involved as well as the different innovative technologies being implemented. Several attendees at the event showed their interest in the project and requested additional information.

A short question and answer session followed the presentations with the Scientific Coordinator, Fernando Centeno of Exergy and Dissemination and Communication managers and Demo Site partners Abdullahi Ahmed and Danny McGough of Coventry University.

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.

Fernando Centeno of Exergy (EXE) was fortunate to be invited as a speaker to present the RESSEEPE project, outlining the background of the project as well as the current progress update. The main goal was to promote the RESSEEPE project to external stakeholders coming from different professional backgrounds and to create more interest among the specialists.

This was followed by an in depth look at the different innovative technologies being used within the project to retrofit the Demo Buildings. The presentation was concluded with a brief insight into the retrofitting analyser and planner.

A question and answer session followed, where the audience as well as fellow speakers displayed a great interest in the project, in particular the innovative technologies being used in the retrofit. An experienced and knowledgeable professor from Japan expressed great interest in the RESSEEPE project and the Aerogel material. Professor Shukuya Masanori of Tokyo City University, specialises in Restoration Ecology and Built Environment and required further information on the insulating material.
