E2ReBuild Demonstrations

In E2ReBuild, seven different residential building demonstrations provide best practice examples of retrofitting strategies for buildings in cold climates, from Finland in the north to the alp region in southeast France. The demonstrator also covers different building typologies representative for northern Europe.

The aim is to reduce the energy use in the demonstration buildings to 30-50 kWh/m2a for heating, ventilation and hot water, by introducing innovative and sustainable renovation solutions.

These solutions focus on industrial manufacturing methods for e.g., facade elements and standardised retrofit measures that allow a high replication potential. That potential is estimated to up to 60 percent of the existing apartment buildings in the studied region and time period (1946-1980).

Two years in to the project the demonstration buildings are in different development phases, from planning and early constuction to completed construction and monitoring.
