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!

LEAF - Low Energy Apartment Futures

LEAF - Low Energy Apartment Futures

Project timeline: April 2013 - March 2016  
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe 
Website: www.lowenergyapartments.eu


Description:
LEAF project aims at improving the energy efficiency of apartment blocks by overcoming a number of key barriers to retrofitting these properties such as the limitations of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and difficulties associated with buildings under multiple ownership. The project will develop a toolkit that provides a step-by-step approach to retrofitting apartment blocks, incorporating a ‘Technical Toolkit’ and an ‘Engagement Toolkit’.


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

Project timeline: March 2012 - February 2015
Programme: FP7 - EeB.NMP
Website: www.easee-project.eu


Description:
EASEE project aimed at developing a Toolkit for envelope retrofitting of existing multi-storey and multi-owner buildings which combines novel design and assessment strategies, with scaffolding-free installation approaches, to reduce energy demand and minimising the impact on occupants while preserving the façade original appearance.

TRAINREBUILD - Training for Rebuilding Europe

Project timeline: December 2010 - December 2012
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.trainrebuild.eu


Description: TRAINREBUILD project aimed to design a comprehensive value chain strategy to generate a change in the thinking of public and private building owners regarding the link between energy efficiency and value related to building ownership. The project also aimed to encourage retrofitting in a wide range of residential buildings, spanning from individual to multi-family houses and from private to social housing.
