A FP7 project proposal involving the SusChem inspired Smart Energy Home partnership has received a positive evaluation and entered the negotiation phase with the European Commission.
The 'Building Energy Efficiency for Massive market UPtake' (BEEM-UP) project will be a four-year undertaking with 20 partners to collaborate on the development and demonstration of technologies to renovate existing residential multi-family buildings. The project hopes to demonstrate the economic, social and technical feasibility of retrofitting existing buildings to achieve drastically reduced energy consumption.
BEEM-UP would be implemented in three sites (France, the Netherlands and Sweden) using innovative materials to achieve a 75% reduction in space heat energy consumption, as well as reducing the energy need for hot water and lighting.
