eERG è il gruppo di ricerca sull'efficienza negli usi finali dell'energia
attivo dal 1996 presso il Dipartimento di Energia del Politecnico di Milano
This project aims to trigger the successful implementation of NZEBs throughout the EU, using Passive House supplied as much as possible by renewable energies as the foundation.
Several European municipalities and regions are already committed to energy efficient Passive House principles (dictating maximum heating and cooling demands of 15 kWh/(m²a) each in new builds) and to covering the very low remaining energy demand in these buildings, to a significant extent and where logical, by energy from renewable energy sources. Along with other best practice examples, the experiences from these front runner regions, or PassREgs, will help pave the way for other EU regions to achieve the EPBD targets by 2020.
This project is thus based on European regions/municipalities that either are already PassREg regions or are striving to become such regions. Through this project, the front runner regions that have already implemented successful, cost effective strategies will be optimized and made visible. Based on the lessons learnt within the project, useful parts of their models, the mechanisms in place promoting and supporting the implementation of PassREg concepts, will be adapted and implemented in the aspiring regions, less advanced partner regions that are striving to become front runners. Beacon projects, real construction and refurbishment projects built in accordance with Passive House and supplied by renewable energy where sensible, will round out the project, providing concrete case studies that will shed light on how each model promotes progress. Regions associated with consortium partners not yet fully ready to commit to a model but often with a beacon project already, known as standalone beacon regions also contribute to the development of project goals.
To facilitate EU-wide uptake, infrastructure will be strengthened by supporting the availability of qualified materials, products and professionals on regional markets and by optimizing existing Passive House building and component certification criteria for application in various EU climate zones. The experiences taken from participating regions along with lessons learnt from the project’s beacons will figure into a set of solutions that will make best practice accessible across the EU. Supported by newly strengthened infrastructure, the optimized existing and new front runner regions and the resulting set of solutions will serve to advance the uptake and large-scale creation and optimization of further PassREgs throughout the rest of Europe well in line with the EU’s 2020 goal.
