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!

MaTrID - Market transformation towards nZEB through widespread use of integrated energy design

MaTrID - Market transformation towards nZEB through widespread use of integrated energy design

Project timeline: June 2012 - January 2015
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.integrateddesign.eu


Description:
MaTrID aimed to support the implementation of nZEB by contributing to the optimisation of the building design phase. Integrated Energy Design (IED) is a valuable approach to reduce the complexity of the design process and facilitate the interactions between the members of the design team while saving time, money and insuring the successful development of the project to be implemented on the ground.

SHELTER - Promoting Professionals Coordination in Energy Renovation

Project timeline: June 2010 - May 2013
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.shelterproject-iee.eu


Description:
The aim of the SHELTER project was to bring together social housing organisations, architects and builders by promoting and facilitating the use of new models of cooperation, inspired by integrated design, for the energy renovation of the social housing stock. The consortium identified pros and cons of the procedures currently used by the six housing organisation involved in the project and developed, apply and test new models of coordination, adapted to their specific needs.

Project timeline: June 2010 - May 2013
Programme: Intelligent Energy Europe
Website: www.afterproject.eu


Description: AFTER project aimed at enabling Social Housing companies to improve the energy efficiency of their housing stocks by focusing on cost optimal solutions for the maintenance and management phase of their dwellings. Through the analysis of its pilots in six countries, the project assessed the actual performance of the technical solutions implemented, define and test economic, technical & socially optimum standards for long-term investment decisions and assessed, through the trends in consumption, the actual impact of the promotional campaigns targeting tenants’ awareness on energy that have been carried in the framework of the project.


Housing Federation(s)/Organisation(s) involved: L’Union Sociale pour l’Habitat (France), Federcasa (Italy), BL (Denmark), Le Toit Angevin (France), Confédération de la Consommation, du Logement et du Cadre de Vie (France), ATC Torino (Italy), Mestska Realitni Agentura (Czech Republic), Bauverein AG Darmstadt (Germany), Spekter (Slovenia)
