Latest from IES R&D: What Key Features will FASUDIR bring?

By Edwina Cramp on Friday 22 July 2016

At Sustainable Places 2016 earlier this month, our R&D Project Manager Nick Purshouse took part in the final results workshop for one of the EU funded projects we’ve been part of, FASUDIR.

The FASUDIR or “Friendly and Affordable Sustainable Urban Districts Retrofitting” research project, has been developing new business models and related tools to help encourage the growth of sustainable urban retrofitting across Europe.

A key outcome of the project is an Integrated Decision Support Tool (IDST), which encompasses a new methodology supported by a software tool. The tool will help decision-makers select the best retrofitting strategies, as well as create a repository for retrofitting technologies.

This video provides a quick overview of all the key features available in the IDST.

The IDST is expected to be tested on three different European urban districts later this year:

  • Historic City Quarter founded in XIII Century: Santiago de Compostela, Spain
  • Communist era residential district with public buildings: Budapest, Hungary
  • Residential district built in the 1970’s: Heinricht-Lübke-Siedlung in Frankfurt, Germany
