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)
SkellefteƄ (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.
