SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE

The aim of the School of the Future project was to design, demonstrate, evaluate and communicate shining examples of how to achieve the high performance building of the future. School buildings and their primary users - pupils - were the focus of the project. Both the energy and indoor environment...

REMOURBAN

REMOURBAN is a lighthouse project whose ultimate goal is to design and validate a urban regeneration model in the cities of Nottingham (United Kingdom), Valladolid (Spain) and Tepebasi/Eskisehir (Turkey), while maximizing its replication potential in two follower cities, Seraing (Belgium) and...

READY

The READY project aims to demonstrate how the demand of energy and particularly the needs for fossil fuels and release of CO2 can be considerably reduced to nearly zero, and show a sustainable way to go for other European cities. Demonstration is taking place in two cities: Aarhus (Denmark), which...

NEXT-BUILDINGS

The NEXT-Buildings project focuses on low energy buildings also called active houses, which are not only buildings, but active components in the overall integrated energy systems. The target is to demonstrate affordable solutions for social housing and revitalisation of town areas. The solutions...

NEED4B

NEED4B is a collaborative project that will demonstrate cost-effective and energy efficient technologies and methods for the design and construction of very low-energy new buildings. A series of pilots located in different European climates will show how to achieve a primary energy consumption...
