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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
