We create zero-energy public buildings
For six months, our experts from the Energy Efficiency Laboratory have been conducting research in an international team, composed of engineers, financiers, and representatives of local governments, on the development of a set of tools supporting the renovation of school buildings and their transformation into nearly zero-energy buildings. As part of the FEEDSCHOOLS project, three tools dedicated to local authorities will be created, thanks to which it will be possible to implement on a large scale deep thermo-modernization of public buildings. The technical application will enable identification of innovative solutions which allow to achieve the nearly zero-energy building standard (nZEB). The financial application will indicate optimal financial models, assuming that own expenditures should be minimised. The third tool will be an online database on innovative best practices of the renovation of buildings to the nZEB standard. All tools will be placed on an integrated online platform and will be available as Open Source. The developed tools will be tested in six cities participating in the project, including Warsaw.
The second partner meeting of FEEDSCHOOLS project took place in Graz (Austria) on 21-22 February 2018. During the meeting RIC Pro-Akademia’s representatives presented the results of the work carried out so far and plans for the coming months within the workpackage coordinated by RIC, which focuses on conducting pilot activities in 48 schools in six countries.
Further information will follow on the project website.
FEEDSCHOOLS project is co-financed by the European Union through the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE 2014-2020 programme under the European Regional Development Fund
