Periodic Reporting for period 2 - NewTREND (New integrated methodology and Tools for Retrofit design towards a next generation of ENergy efficient and sustainable buildings and Districts)
Reporting period: 2017-03-01 to 2018-08-31
NewTREND will have a positive impact on the environment through reduced energy consumption and increased use of renewables from the EU building stock, and in turn reduced C02 emissions. Environmentally, the calculations show that the total amount of CO2e saved by NewTREND over a 5 year period is 319,313tCO2e
The economy will grow through job creation related to new skills and products, as well as reduced in energy bills and increase in market share of renewable technologies. Economically, the headline figure is that there is a potential to save €96.3 million that is attributable to NewTREND through reduced electricity and gas consumption. If the NewTREND economic savings are reinvested in the economy, then there is potential to create 1,830 jobs across the seven countries.
Society will benefit through improvement of comfort and living conditions for EU citizens and new skills obtained in BIM and retrofitting processes.
