The three systems will be demonstrated at four demo sites: a pilot office building in Seville (Spain, ACCIONA Construction); a water treatment plant in Madrid (Canal de Isabel II & ACCIONA Water); a Pulp and Paper mill in Setubal (Portugal, The Navigator Company); and a student hall in Badajoz (Spain, University of Extremadura). At this time, we have concluded the retrofitting works
During the first year of the project, four demo sites have been evaluated in order to be equipped with their respective LowUP systems during the next year. In parallel, individual components have been designed and customized for each one of the sites.
LowUP – which stands for ‘Low valued energy sources UPgrading for buildings and industry uses’– will contribute to achieving Europe’s GHG reduction targets and increase energy efficiency. The project will develop and demonstrate three new efficient heating and cooling technologies that will significantly reduce both CO2 emissions and primary energy consumption. Led by the Spanish firm ACCIONA, LowUP gathers 13 partners
The Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute will be holding their sixth annual Heat Conference on Thursday 30 November 2017, this year widening the event to incorporate a broader decentralised energy remit. Now is the time for the heat and decentralised energy sectors to show leadership. The world is changing. With a minority Government in office and our
Date: Monday, 13th November 2017 – Tuesday, 14th November 2017 The conference Delivering healthy and energy efficient buildings with EPBD at the second day will contain of 2 sessions: The morning session provides latest news about the EPBD review, just after the vote in the European Parliament in October. Invited panellists are representatives of the EU institutions: Parliament, European Commission, and a representative of the
In this section, we discuss energy efficient solutions and the possibility of nZEB with the LowUP project partners. Our debut interview features Jouni Helppolainen who shares some barriers to energy efficient solutions in buildings and how to overcome them. LowUP: Tell us a bit about your company. What does it do and in which way is it involved in energy efficiency?
This infographic, released by the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, demonstrates the importance of improving the energy efficiency of buildings in the European Union, and provides information about concrete achievements from EU funded projects in relation to this target. The infographic illustrates: Innovative technologies for a modern construction sector. The EU Research & Innovation funding (budget: EUR 600 million) provided
Original article published on BUILDUp (The European portal for energy efficiency in buildings) website The Energy Information Days will take place from Monday 23 to Wednesday 25 October 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, presenting the new funding opportunities and innovative schemes offered by Horizon 2020’s Work Programme 2018-2020. Applying for funding is a competitive process, and only the best project proposals
On 22 and 23 May 2017, CARTIF, one of the thirteen LowUP project partners will host the First General Technical Meeting which will take place in Boecillo, Valladolid (Spain). This meeting which will span over the period of two days will assess the progress of the project so far and strategise on how to meet the project’s objectives for the
Focused on energy efficiency and the use of solar energy in the built environment, CISBAT offers a dynamic international platform for scientific exchange in fields ranging from nanostructured materials for renewable energy applications to urban energy systems. CISBAT is organised for the 14th time by the Solar Energy and Building Physics Lab (LESO-PB) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
