7th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC2018) in Syracuse, NY, USA

23-26 September 2018

​​​​​​​​The event was attended by Marco Arnesano, Universita Politecnica Delle Marche

The 7th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC20​18​) ​brought together researchers, scientists, architects, engineers and businesses involved in building physics, to present original research and findings, demonstrate and exhibit innovative green building technologies, and discuss future challenges and opportunities. The conference takes place every 3 years and is the conference of the International Association of Building Physics (IABP). IBPC2018 was the first time this conference was held in the United States. The conference advanced the collective understanding of the nature and behaviour of the cyber-physical systems in these different scales, how they interact, and what can be done to optimize their design and operation for healthy, intelligent and resilient buildings and urban environments.

The methodology for Indoor Environments Quality (IEQ) monitoring within P2ENDURE and the project were presented during the "Assessment and Analysis" session. The conference proceedings with the paper on the P2ENDURE IEQ monitoring system will be published soon.​

P2ENDURE Deep Renovation Joint Workshop in Rome, Italy

5 October 2018

​​​​​​​​Don't miss the opportunity for an inside look at most innovative systems for deep renovation of building envelopes and technical systems

The event is hosted by P2ENDURE project and is organised in conjunction with EENSULATE and ENVISION projects.

P2ENDURE (Plug-and-Play Product and Process Innovation for Energy-efficient Building Deep Renovation) aims at improving the availability and performance of energy saving solutions for deep renovation and transformation of vacant, obsolete or sub-optimal public buildings into dwellings. The project provides Plug & Play solutions which are ready to implement, affordable, 50% faster from production to on-site assembly, scalable and adaptable (in all European countries).

EENSULATE (Development of innovative lightweight and highly insulating energy efficient components and associated enabling materials for cost-effective retrofitting and new construction of curtain wall facades) goal is to develop affordable (20% reduction of total costs) and lightweight (35% weight reduction) solutions for the envelope insulation in curtain wall buildings, meeting "nearly zero energy" standards, reducing energy bills by at least 20% and complying at the same time with the structural limits of the original building structure and national building codes.

ENVISION (ENergy harVesting by Invisible Solar IntegratiON in building skins) focusses on the development of a full renovation concept harvesting energy from ALL building surfaces (transparent and opaque) by absorbing the invisible part of the solar radiation (the near-infrared (NIR) part, roughly 50% of the solar energy spectrum). ENVISION will use standard PV solutions for roof and new thermal and electrical energy harvesting solutions for the building façade, consisting of heat collecting coloured façade elements and heat and electricity harvesting glazing solutions. To maximize the efficiency, all the harvesting solutions will be coupled to novel heating systems and district heat network, thus ensuring an efficient energy use, distribution and storage.

This workshop will bring together stakeholders representing key decision makers and implementers in the field of deep renovation of buildings, along with retrofitting solutions users, and developers for an array of interactive poster sessions and discussions, and a unique hands-on showcase of innovative deep renovation of building solutions.

The objective of the Workshop is to raise awareness on the most innovative building renovation and energy saving solutions and as well as to present and discuss altogether the main features of P2ENDURE e-Marketplace. Dedicated interactive poster sessions and P2ENDURE e-Marketplace workshops will take place.

Sustainable Places 2018 (SP2018) in Aix-les-Bains, France

27 - 29 June 2018

​​The event was attended by DEMO Consultants, Universita Politecnica Delle Marche and Huygen Installatie Adviseurs

The Sustainable Places Conference 2018 (SP201​8)​, hosted by INES Research & Development in Chambery, France, aimed to foster innovative market solutions and empower synergies between Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB) and the interdependent smart grids, policies, construction actors, and forward-thinking communities. More than 165 delegates from different stakeholder segments participated representing countries all over the world. The symposium comprised 13 clustering workshops organized (most notably 2 events organized by the European Commission, and an official public debate on the multiannual energy program), several scientific posters being displayed (including a P2ENDURE poster), 8 presentation sessions of papers and briefings, as well as 8 keynote speeches delivered.

Together with three sister projects: 4RinEU, ProGETonE and MORE-CONNECT​, P2ENDURE​ organised a workshop on Deep Energy Renovation. This clustering workshop focused on presenting successful experiences and pointing out existing challenges with an integrative approach to improve the low renovation rate of existing buildings in Europe that is hindering the reaching of EU-wide targets and can't be solved with effective technologies alone.

The conference paper on P2ENDURE titled "Plug-and-Play solutions for energy-efficiency & deep renovation of European building stock" has been presented by Rizal Sebastian (DEMO Consultants) during the Retrofit, Renovation and Refurbishment session. The paper will be available on the P2ENDURE website in the Dissemination section. ​

Both presentations can be viewed here.
