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

GCESD 2015

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.

The presentation commenced with Fernando Centeno, Scientific Coordinator of the RESSEEPE project, giving a brief overview of the project followed by detailed information about the different Demo Sites across Europe. 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.

The presentation at the conference generated a great amount of interest in the RESSEEPE project, with many industry experts and professionals continuing to follow the progress of the project through the next phases.
