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.

RESSEEPE Newsletter – June 2015

We are glad to present to you the RESSEEPE Newsletter – June 2015. What’s inside? Here is a quick glance of some of the points covered:

  1. High Performance Buildings Conference
    Last July 2014 the Heat and Mass Transfer Technological Center (CTTC) of UPC – BARCELONA TECH participated in the International High Performance Buildings Conference that took place in Purdue University (Indiana) USA, presenting a paper entitled: ”Analysis of IAQ based on modelling of building envelope coupled with CFD&HT room airflow”, within the framework of WP5 Task 5.2 Indoor Environmental Quality.
  2. RESSEEPE On show – Europaveckan
    Europaveckan – ”European week” – is a regional initiative in the northernmost regions in Sweden, where a number of activities are performed to spread information about the European Union. It is organised by the Europe Direct information offices in May.
  3. Validation of the photovoltaic powered electrochromic window prototype
    An electrochromic window (EC) can change its light transmission properties in a controlled and reversible manner when a small electric current flows through the device. This technology provides a dynamic control on the impinging sunlight and thereby reduces the energy expenses by 19% and 48% in the cooling and lighting demand respectively.
  4. Stakeholders engagement activities
    Stakeholder engagement is a very important part of any building interventions. Coventry University developed user satisfaction surveys to evaluate the user responses to the building in terms of comfort and general condition of the building and building facilities.

RESSEEPE Newsletter – May 2015

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. A systemic process will be also implemented that will allow the selection of the best possible retrofitting mix, customised to the needs of the particular building.

We are glad to present to you the RESSEEPE Newsletter – May 2015. What’s inside? Here is a quick glance of some of the points covered:

  1. The network of sensors has been deployed in Hospital de Terrassa
    A network of sensors has been deployed in Hospital de Terrassa in order to collect data on several parameters before and after the retrofitting works to be undertaken in the 7th, 8th and 9th floors of the building in the framework of RESSEEPE project. Find out more about the project from the newsletter.

  2. EcoBuild 2015
    Ecobuild UK 2015, between the 3rd and 5th of March, was the opportunity to show the RESSEEPE project in 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. Find out more about the event from the newsletter.

  3. GCESD 2015
    The GCESD conference (Global Conference on Energy and Sustainable Development) took place between 24th and 26th February 2015 in Coventry, UK. This event was organised by The World Energy and Environment Technology Ltd. The conference covered several topics ranging from renewable energy resources and energy system analysis to sustainability methodologies and sustainable development for innovation. Find out more about the conference from the newsletter.

  4. Exploitation Strategy Seminar – ESS
    An exploitation strategy seminar is organised backto-back with the next project meeting, on 25th June in Sabadell, Spain. Main topic of the event will be to present sustainable exploitation strategies for the 8 exploitable proposed items.

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.
