During the lifetime of project, a set of advanced refurbishment technologies selected at project proposal stage will be developed, tested and optimized through an accurate product development strategy..

technologies

HIGH-PERFORMANCE RADIANT FLOOR

EXPLODED will develop a smart modular underfloor heating system based in multiple tiles with single heating, insulating, sensing and communication capabilities. Each floor tile can act as a single heating element as well as temperature and occupancy sensor.

This concept will increase the energy savings in 10% and thermal comfort in 10%, decrease the installation time in 15%, its payback time is estimated between 2 and 4,5 years and could be applied in all residential building typologies, limited (today) for thin surface finishes <10mm (thin tiles, wooden floors, carpets and vinylic). For thermal reasons the system is not recommended with marble of other surface finishes over 10mm.

NEW GENERATION OF BIPV SOLUTIONS

ONYX will develop a new generation of products based on light weight flexible shapes and plug&play elements technically and aesthetically customized to the demands of the residential sector.

Added-value properties based on flexible, thin and colourful supra-substrates will allow their integration in tiles, roofs, façades and existing fenestrations in complex buildings envelope shapes. This idea will reduce energy consumption of about 25-40% thanks to the passive properties, produce 40-200 kWh/year of electricity generation (active property) and decrease the installation time in 20%, The estimated payback time is between 6 and 10 years and could be applied in all residential building typologies.

SAHP PUMPS

UNOTT will develop innovative direct expansion solar assisted heat pumps (SAHP) and ground

source heat pumps using thermal pipes. SAHP concept is based on the use of a solar collector as evaporator where the refrigerant is directly vaporized due to solar energy input; an innovative “thermal pipe” can be driven into the ground using a hand-held piler and act as a heat source for a heat pump. This concept will increase the energy savings in 25%, decrease the installation time in 20% and its payback time is estimated between 7 and 10 years, applicable in all residential building typologies.

SUPER-THERMAL INSULATING SYSTEMS

SG-PLACO will develop a set of super-insulating products consisting of:

1) A gypsum-based product development machine to assure the airtightness;

2) A high thermal efficient external solution with reduced installation time and low environmental impact founded on gypsum-based panels and

3) Advanced nano-porous products embedded in gypsum to maximise the thermal resistance of the systems.

This concept will reduce average energy consumption of about 50%, decrease an average installation time in 20%, its payback time is estimated between 5 and 10 years and could be applied in all residential building typologies.

ADVANCED BEMS

VERDI and ESTIA will develop an advanced BEMS based on the Maetrics’ Platform (monitoring Solution). The background of MAETRICS and its IOT Platform will be integrated with an ad hoc ‘algorithm box’ (ESTIA Box) designed for REBUILD project, with the main aim of developing an advanced BEMS solution that will allow 4 functioning modes: Auto, Manual, Semi-Auto and Empty. This solution will be able to manage and report real-time energy consumption of the building as well as prioritize the most effective power generation source according to the grid configuration of the building.

The system will be able to help the user on the management of the energy use or directly interact with the sources, storage and loads (generation and demand side management) based on multi-criteria optimization algorithms and on a sensor (for measurement) and actuator (for management) network using wired or wireless technology.

This concept will increase energy savings by 10%; decrease installation time by 30%, its payback time is estimated between 6 and 8 years and could be applied in all housing typologies

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES: 3D PRINTING FAÇADES

VIAS and CARTIF will develop a 3D printing robot that be able to print vertical surfaces (envelopes and walls) using layer-by-layer techniques in a reduced time for its application in façade rehabilitation. The robot will be able to combine the use of different type of materials for structural and isolation purposes.

The incorporation of the above-mentioned technology will allow the reduction of labor risks, execution times and, in the future, of the impact of financial costs. Problems with thermal bridges and joints between panels/bricks will be solved through the use of a robot that can be moved across the entire façade. This concept will reduce the energy consumption of about 20-30%, its payback time is estimated between 5-8 years and could be applied in more common residential building typologies (glazed facades or elements of much reduced porosity would be excluded).
