Perceived risk of new building concepts integrating renewable energy technologies compared to the traditional “bricks and mortar” approach
Global transition towards a more secure, clean, and efficient energy system
Government policy incentives are aimed at sector adoption to ensure new approaches become standard practice.
Apartment and office construction is €190 billion of annual EU economic activity with large employment, social development impacts and scope for technical innovation.
Building environmental assessment schemes emphasise sustainability and energy ratings, over and above the mandatory requirements set out in the Building Regulations
“Normal” facades don’t produce energy. “Normal” facades cannot participate in Demand Response programs or monetise flexibility services as part of the smart grid.
To decarbonise the building stock we need multifunctional facades which collect solar & ambient energy and fulfil traditional functions such as weather, noise & fire protection.
Modular design and prefabrication simplifies integration of energy efficiency measures and Renewable Energy provision.
Prefabricated elements are faster to construct need fewer subcontractors and reduce construction & retrofit costs.
Decarbonisation through distributed building integrated solutions can be achieved through smaller incremental investments
