the Retrofitting Market Activation Platform based on the generation of standard modules for energy efficiency and clean energy solutions

Project description

An umbrella framework for a low carbon building stock

The building sector is the single largest energy consumer in Europe. Within its 2030 climate and energy framework, the EU has committed to improving the energy performance of buildings. Since three quarters of today’s buildings will still exist in 2050, the key to a low carbon building stock is to renovate. The EU-funded re-MODULEES project will develop an EU-wide umbrella platform for the renovation of existing EU residential buildings. re-MODULEES is based on EU-wide umbrella framework clustering efforts and aims at shaping cross-regional market activation policies. As such, the project will strategically leverage other EU-funded projects' knowledge and solutions to customise their market uptake according to regional climatic, building and socio-economic conditions.

Objective

re-MODULEES aims at the creation of an EU-wide “umbrella” framework for EE in existing residential buildings based on the generation of standard modules for the retrofit market activation and up-take. Modularity is to be intended as multi-level: it regards the “breakdown” of the overall retrofit process into standardized segments; and multi-target: it regards their customization according to regional climatic, building, socio-economic and market conditions, in order to shape more effective tools and approaches through which to maximise cost-optimality, positive spillovers and impact. This framework is based on clustering of efforts and evidences, and would allow shaping cross-regional policies, and generating wider homogeneous, integrated and facilitated retrofitting market areas. For this reason, re-MODULEES aims to be a strategic capitalization project which, by leveraging on the wide background of several H2020 projects (as well as from other EU programs), will join and combine knowledge, approaches and tools already available within its clear modular framework, so to optimize their uptake on local markets.
