How to plug-in to the POWER HOUSE nearly-Zero Energy Challenge!

POWER HOUSE nZEC! is working to gradually link up Europe’s 41,400 local housing providers represented by Housing Europe’s members in order to help them in their path towards nearly-Zero Energy Buildings.

If you are managing or involved in a project that is developing useful resources (guidelines, case studies, best practices or tools) which you deem useful for housing managers who are working to reduce the energy consumption of their housing stocks, please do not hesitate to contact the POWER HOUSE nZEC! Coordinators…thank you in advance for your contribution!

EPISCOPE - Energy Performance Indicator Tracking Schemes for the Continuous Optimisation of Refurbishment Processes in European Housing Stocks

EPISCOPE - Energy Performance Indicator Tracking Schemes for the Continuous Optimisation of Refurbishment Processes in European Housing Stocks

Project timeline: April 2014 - March 2016
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.episcope.eu


Description:
EPISCOPE project aims at making the energy refurbishment processes in the European housing sector transparent and effective. Starting point is the TABULA concept (see below) of residential building typologies which will be continued and expanded. As a further step, the scope of EPISCOPE is extended towards the elaboration of building stock models to assess refurbishment processes and project the future energy consumption. Pilot actions will be conducted in 16 countries to track the implementation of energy saving measures and their effect on the consumption.


Housing Federation(s)/Organisation(s) involved: none


Resources and Case studies produced in the framework of the EPISCOPE project:

TABULA - Typology Approach for Building Stock Energy Assessment

TABULA - Typology Approach for Building Stock Energy Assessment

Project timeline: June 2009 - May 2012
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.building-typology.eu 


Description:
TABULA project aimed to create a harmonised model for European building typologies, linked to specific energy characteristics, in particular for the residential building sector. The development and utilisation of a web database, served as a data source for scenario analyses that could be used to support policy makers, at regional, national or EU level on the level of savings achieved by renovating each of the selected building typologies.


Housing Federation(s)/Organisation(s) involved: none


Resources and Case studies produced in the framework of the TABULA project:

PassREg - Passive House Regions with Renewable Energies

PassREg - Passive House Regions with Renewable Energies

Project timeline: May 2012 - April 2015
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.passreg.eu 


Description:
PassREg project aims to trigger the successful implementation of nZEBs throughout the EU, using Passive House supplied by renewable energies as the foundation. The project consortium will work to make successfully applied solutions accessible within the project regions and beyond by stimulating the market of suitable products and technologies and build capacity for quality training of construction professionals.

CASH - Cities Action for Sustainable Housing

CASH - Cities Action for Sustainable Housing

Project timeline: July 2010 - January 2013
Programme: URBACT II
Website: http://urbact.eu/en/results/results/?resultid=40 


Description:
The ambition of the CASH project was to propose new solutions and promote new policies for the sustainable renovation of social and affordable housing units in the European Union. The network carried out an extensive, documented study in each partner city in order to set up Local Action Plans in each city and pilot model experiments in the volunteer partner cities.
