New Buildings




List of projects where this technology is being implemented.

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... Continue reading

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... Continue reading

BUILDSMART Site Bilbao

The demonstration building is a three-block residential building located in the Portugalete municipality in Greater Bilbao and is developed by the Basque Government’s Department of Housing, Public Works and Transport. The implemented technologies had to be energy-efficient in order to achieve the target value but at the same time low-cost, because the developer couldn’t afford expensive technology. The social scope of the project is also important as it is oriented towards social housing.

BUILDSMART Site Malmö

The city of Malmö participated in the BUILDSMART project with the construction of four different types of new buildings – a hotel, office and two residential buildings – with a focus on their sustainability. The buildings are located in two areas of the city – Malmö Live, in central Malmö, and in the south-east part of the city, known as Hyllie.

NEXT-BUILDINGS Site Helsingborg

The city of Helsingborg had adopted an ambitious climate action plan by which the city had already achieved 88 % CO2 emissions reductions (compared with the 1997 level) and a less than 20 % share of fossil fuel, the final goal being carbon neutrality, or even exporting carbon-neutral energy to neighbouring areas. With this aim, the NEXT-BUILDINGS project realised very low-energy buildings as the first phase of a huge and very ambitious 311 000 m2 ecodistrict development.

NEXT-BUILDINGS Site Amsterdam

Houthaven used to be a harbour and timber handling area, situated close to Amsterdam city centre, where many wood factories and related companies were located. After a long history of industrial activities, Houthaven is being transformed into a residential area. In total, seven islands are under development, providing space for 2 200 dwellings, 70 houseboats and 50 000 m2 facilities. In the NEXT-BUILDINGS project, 30 000 m2 of net zero-energy buildings were realised within Houthaven in the area named Blok 0.

NEXT-BUILDINGS Site Lyon

The goal of the demonstration project was to build a 12 300 m2 zero-energy building in the Lyon-Confluence area in Lyon, France. The public company in charge of the urban project had had previous experience with its involvement in a demonstration project for the construction of the first buildings of this major urban regeneration project (CONCERTO Renaissance project).

EE-HIGHRISE Site Ljubljana

The objective of the EE-HIGHRISE project was to demonstrate and validate new technologies, concepts, and systems in order to test and assess the technological and economic feasibility of innovative energy solutions for high-rise buildings. The project used the Eco Silver House in Ljubljana (Slovenia) as a demonstration site.

NEED4B Site Istanbul

The Turkish demonstration site of NEED4B is on the Özyeğin  University campus, located in Nisantepe, Istanbul, north-west Turkey. The Nisantepe region is a newly developed residential site situated very close to the residential and financial region of Ümraniye. The building in focus is in part of the campus buildings that host the School of Languages (ScOLa). The total building area is 17 756 m2 spread across seven levels.
