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!

NorthPass - Promotion of the Very Low Energy House Concept to the North European Building Market

NorthPass - Promotion of the Very Low Energy House Concept to the North European Building Market

Project timeline: May 2009 - May 2012
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.northpass.ivl.se


Description:
NorthPass project aimed at promoting the very low-energy house concept in the North European building market, focusing on new residential buildings. In order to do so, project partners defined very-low energy house criteria and concept adapted to the North European countries and identified solutions to remove market barriers and the gap between demonstration and broad market penetration in order to support the implementation of the EU's strategy on very low-energy buildings.


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


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

E2ReBuild - Transforming the retrofitting construction sector

E2ReBuild - Transforming the retrofitting construction sector

Project timeline: June 2009 - May 2012
Programme: FP7 - EeB.NMP 
Website: www.e2rebuild.eu


Description:
E2ReBuild project aimed at providing best practice examples of retrofitting strategies for residential buildings in cold climates by covering different building typologies representative for northern European countries. These solutions focused on industrial manufacturing methods for e.g., facade elements and standardised retrofit measures that allow a high replication potential.


Housing Federation(s)/Organisation(s) involved: Gallions Housing Association (UK) - Aramis AlleeWonen (The Netherlands) - GWG München (Germany) - Wohnungsbaugesellschaft der Stadt Augsburg GmbH (Germany) - Opac38 (France)


Resources and Case studies produced in the framework of the E2ReBuild project:

ENERBUILD - Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies in the Building Sector in the Alpine Space

ENERBUILD - Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies in the Building Sector in the Alpine Space

Project timeline: July 2009 - June 2012
Programme: Alpine Space
Website: www.enerbuild.eu


Description:
ENERBUILD project focused on strengthening SMEs in the building sector because of their great importance as employers in Alpine valleys. The project also analysed new developments concerning building techniques for energy saving and explored the features and the opportunity offered by energy-efficient construction reaching passive house standards.


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


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

COHERENO - Collaboration for housing nearly-Zero Energy Renovation

COHERENO - Collaboration for housing nearly-Zero Energy Renovation

Project timeline: April 2013 - May 2016
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.cohereno.eu


Description:
COHERENO project aims to improve the quality of the construction measures by providing specific support to all stakeholders, thus increasing customer confidence. With these two key aspects, nearly-Zero Energy houses can gain credibility and acceptance, and win a higher market share. The project will develop proposals and concepts for promising cross-sector and company business models for high efficiency refurbishment of single-family houses to nearly-Zero Energy housing. The models are to pave the way for refurbishment from a single source. From financing, consulting and planning, right through to implementation - all parties in the construction process are to be involved.


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