Creating market opportunities for seismic and energy retrofitting
The energy and seismic upgrading of Europe’s building stock can be costly and disruptive for occupants. Nevertheless, is necessary, since most buildings are energy-intensive, earthquake-prone and over 50 years old. The EU-funded e-SAFE project will develop a deep retrofitting system combining energy efficiency, seismic resistance, financial feasibility and other social-benefits. It uses a multidisciplinary approach integrating experimental research and participatory design applied to one real and two virtual pilot projects. The system will be linked to the development of a new value chain aimed at pursuing its market uptake while boosting public awareness on the importance of building decarbonisation and seismic safety.
