Increasing the uptake of renewable solutions is key to securing our future. To help achieve this, the EU-funded RES4BUILD project is developing integrated solutions to help heat or cool buildings. Watch this video to learn about 5 important aspects of this project. Decarbonising energy consumption in buildings is essential to achieving EU energy and climate goals. While the use of renewable electricity in buildings has grown, the uptake of renewable heating/cooling solutions has been slower. This is due to several factors, including the different technological options and difficulties in standardisation due to the varied needs of users and buildings. RES4BUILD, an EU Horizon 2020 funded project, addresses this challenge by developing integrated renewable energy-based solutions that are tailored to the needs and requirements of users and installers.
Users are spoilt for choice with renewable energy options for homes and buildings, making it difficult to choose. The RES4BUILD projects aims to offer solutions that can be packaged to users’ specific needs based on the broader climate in the region.
We expect a range of insightful outputs from our pilots. For example, it will show the conditions for users to make use of the solar energy they generate instead of feeding it into the grid.
The RES4BUILD project is integrating user case studies on how energy systems are being implemented and upgraded in European building, offering key insights for energy optimisation.
