Innovative concepts and affordable solutions
for deep building renovation

e-SAFE: WHAT IS ENTAILED

Innovative technical solutions and implementation protocols, new business models and financial tools, engagement and training of a wide variety of actors: the new e-SAFE approach to deep renovation

ENERGY RETROFITTING
The project applies a new energy retrofitting system designed to allow the reduction of heating and cooling demands, local generation of renewable energy sources and exploitation of thermal storage devices.
SEISMIC RETROFITTING
In earthquake-prone countries, energy and structural performance will be combined. New structural systems will be developed and integrated to increase buildings’ seismic resilience and seismic safety.
CO-DESIGN PROTOCOL
e-SAFE methodology embraces requirements, priorities and desires of all relevant stakeholder. Through participatory activities clients, designers and other professionals will choose together the most suitable solutions in terms of energy savings increase in seismic safety level, aesthetic quality, visual and acoustic comfort.
FINANCIAL FEASIBILITY
New financial tools will be created taking into account national laws, market conditions and customers’ socio-economic status.
EXPECTED RESULTS

e-SAFE ambition is to transform the market of building renovation.
Its expected results include

  • ENERGY SAVING reduction of non-renewable energy consumption
  • DECREASED EMISSIONS reduction of green-house gas emissions
  • DECREASED SEISMIC VULNERABILITY increased seismic resilience of the building stock
  • ENHANCED COMPETENCES of design professionals and the building industry on deep renovation
  • ECONOMIC SAVING reduction of renovation time and costs
  • INCREASED RENOVATION RATE boost to deep renovation initiatives
