"POWER HOUSE Warm/Mediterranean TaskForce Workshop & Study visit" - 19-20 March 2015, Marseille, France

On the 19th March 2014, the members of the POWER HOUSE Warm/Mediterranean Climates TaskForce met in Marseille to present to the management and technical staff of the Association Régionale Hlm PACA & Corse the TaskForce’s findings and exchange information about Mediterranean bioclimatic architectural principles.

During the Workshop, the regional scheme in place to finance the energy refurbishment of the Social Housing stock (plan RHEA hlm) was explain in details; the programme, with a budget of 60 million € over 4 years will allow the energy refurbishment of 25.000 dwellings in the PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur) region. To conclude, the French colleagues presented the results of a survey carried out in the PACA region in 2014 on the energy and environmental performance on a sample of 93 new social housing projects equivalent to 3.211 dwellings.

The following day, participants had the opportunity to visit one new-construction housing project “Résidence Valtellina” in  Chateauneuf-les-Martigues, consisting in 4 buildings for a total of 117 dwellings. The complex, managed by Logirem, was built in observance of bioclimatic principles to nearly-Zero Energy standards (BBC, Bâtiment de Basse Consommation according to French regulation). The study visit continued to two refurbishments projects in Vitrolles, where 122 dwellings were refurbished by Logirem and other 125 by Famille et Provence to high energy standards.
