We are currently looking for 40 more case study buildings, which are planing an energy renovation and consider adding additional space with an increase in the architectural value at the same time.
ACE is a consortium partner in the EU-funded project ABRACADABRA. It is based on the prior assumption that non-energy related benefits play a key role in the deep renovation of existing buildings. In particular, the generation of a substantial increase of the real estate value of the buildings through significant energy and architectural transformation with new volume additions or new buildings’ construction, to go beyond the minimum energy performance and aim at achieving Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs). The EU-funded ABRACADABRA project has developed 3 decision support tools for this purpose, which you can test for free.
Case study buildings will benefit from a free and thorough analysis of potential volumetric Add-ons and Renewables (AdoRes). By applying ABRACADABRA toolkits, each case study building will be provided with tailored information about suitable technical solutions, possible energy reduction, potential economic boosts for the investment and information about regulatory requirements. The case study buildings will also be promoted as part of the ABRACADABRA project, receiving international exposure as a result of the communication and dissemination efforts of the project.
