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.
Over the past two years I’ve been working as a co-investigator on the RESSEEPE project. The Project title stands for ‘REtrofitting Solutions and Services for the enhancement of Energy Efficiency in Public Edification’ (RESSEEPE). It’s an EU funded project that focuses on the refurbishment of existing public buildings in three European cities. The aim of the project is to bring together design and decision making tools and innovative building fabric manufacturers to collaborate to improve building performance through low impact retrofitting interventions to achieve a 50% reduction in energy consumption.
The project has some significant research partners and stockholders with demo sites in the UK at Coventry University, Skellefteå in Sweden and Barcelona in Spain. Additional to the demo sites partners, research partners include Coventry University, Exergy, IES, OHL and Tecnalia. As well as a number of other contributors which can be found via this link.
Below is a short video which will introduce the project;
Over the next few months I will continue to update the site with further progress and videos on the project, including details on the innovative technologies and low impact strategies.
