RenoZEB project is expected to last until 2021
RenoZEB project organised a Training Day for architects and CPD trainers about the new tools developed in the project for energy calculation, efficiency and optimisation of renovated buildings. This event provided architects from all over Europe with deep knowledge about the newest procedures and strategies for guaranteeing the implementation of key eco-friendly measures in the design process.

RenoZEB project participated in three exciting sessions at Sustainable Places 2020 on-line event held between the 27th and the 30th of October.
The pre-validation phase of the façade elements has been realised in KUBIK, the test-infrastructure managed by TECNALIA Research & Innovation in Bilbao, Spain. KUBIK is the first digital twin of a building in Spain. Static and dynamic information obtained automatically and based on BIM models enables performance assessments of innovative products and technologies. Read more here.
The event “Cluster International Conference”, organised by Bologna University - Department of Architecture, took place on 16 December 2019 in Bologna (Italy). The focus was on the state of scientific research in Europe regarding building energy efficiency and related issues. The interactive discussion was organised around the following five main topics:
- Smart Façade
- Industrial processes for the deep renovation of buildings
- Construction processes and technology building blocks
- Renewable energy and HVAC systems
- Smart grid
In the activities related to the RenoZEB envelope prototype testing and validation, Focchi team has prototyped and tested further facade panels.
Two tests have already been conducted with positive results:
1) an acoustic mock-up test (on the left) under UNI EN ISO 16283-3:2016/EC 1-2016/EC 2-2016 and UNI EN ISO 717-1:2013 (IN-OUT test) with an acoustic insulation performance moved from 46dB of the only building envelope to 57dB after the installation of the RenoZEB panels;
2) a performance mock-up test (on the right) under UNI EN 13830:2005 passing positively the tests and achieving the standard for CE certification.
In the next weeks, a further test under EN 13823 (classification SBI) will be conducted to understand the reaction to fire of the RenoZEB panel.
RenoZEB was presented, among other 14 EU-funded projects, by the coordinator Michele Vavallo at the Stunning Final Conference. The event was held at CSTB - Paris.

This yearly publication presents the progress of a portfolio of 174 European research projects aiming at developing new technologies for energy efficient buildings. 110 projects have been co-funded within the EeB PPP under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) from 2010 to 2013 and 64 projects under the Horizon 2020 Programme (H2020) between 2014 and 2018.

During the project meeting in Tartu, partners had the possibility of visiting the demo building in Vöru, Estonia. The Rannaliiva building was built in the 80ies and host 16 dwellings in 2 floors, for an overall size living area of 1307 m2 (net area).
The project meting took place in Tartu, Estonia to see one of the real demonstration buildings, which will be renovated with the RenoZEB technologies.
During the kick-off meeting the 19 project partners with interdisciplinary profiles and experiences reiterated their commitment to work together on achieving RenoZEB’s objectives for the duration of the project, i.e. 42 months.
On 1 October 2017, RenoZEB, a new EU funded project under Horizon 2020, started. RenoZEB aims to unlock the nearly-zero energy building (nZEB) renovation market by increasing property value through a new systemic approach to retrofitting.
