With a staggering 97% of the housing stock estimated as being energy inefficient, the building sector represents a tremendous potential for energy savings, that still needs to be unlocked.
To that end, buildings need to transform from passive isolated elements to energy-efficient and smart-grid ready buildings, able to act as active nodes well integrated to the energy grids and other infrastructures, while answering occupants needs.
A number of EU funded projects - including BuiltHub - are currently developing and testing solutions that will push further the smart readiness of buildings and their interactions with the environment. They address various topics such as the optimization of energy consumption and (renewable) generation, the provision of flexibility services to the power network, improved wellbeing and new services to occupants, as well as new business opportunities and models.
This webinar gave participants the opportunity to meet 10 of those projects and discuss their key innovations. Project Coordinator Ulrich Fillippi of EURAC introduced BuiltHub and its aims and objectives to the 64 participants. Watch it here!
The webinar was organised by the SmartBuilt4EU project, an EC-funded project that aims to support the innovation ecosystem in the smart building value chain through concrete networking and communication actions.
