New integrated methodology and Tools for Retrofit design towards a next generation of ENergy efficient and sustainable buildings and Districts
New Technology Platform and associated Methodology to improve the energy efficiency of existing building stock by integrating the energy retrofit of buildings into the district and neighbourhood context. Aims to establish energy performance as a key component of refurbishments and foster collaboration among stakeholders in the value chain to ease collaborative design. Occupants and building users will be engaged across all refurbishment phases throughout the whole life cycle of the renovation. The NewTrend online platform will enable data collection, information exchange and facilitate collaboration. It will also allow evaluation of different design options at both the building and district level, including district schemes and shared renewables, and will present information on available financing schemes and applicable business models. The NewTREND methodology and tools will be validated in three real refurbishment projects in Hungary, Finland and Spain.
