Webinar | Lightweight solutions for high insulating building envelopes

Buildings account for around 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the European Union.

 

Curtain walls, associated with modern architecture and large office building stock, are often criticized for their limited insulation properties. Existing buildings, including historical ones, are responsible for up to 60% of energy losses through the envelope.

 

EENSULATE project tackles this problem by developing innovative, lightweight, and highly insulating energy-efficient components and associated materials for cost-effective retrofitting and new construction of curtain wall facades.

 

The “Lightweight solutions for high insulating building envelopes – The EENSULATE project” webinar aims to raise awareness on the most innovative building renovation and energy-saving solutions and to present the technologies developed by EENSULATE project co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

This webinar was hosted by Build Up portal.

Advanced Materials And Nanotechnology Cluster

The scope of the AMANAC-CSA is to create an effective and long lasting collaboration and coordination platform within all the Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology projects (AMANAC), approved in the frame of the EeB-PPP, whose activities address development of (nano)materials, components and systems for the improvement of the energy efficiency in the built environment. AMANAC-CSA aims to maximize the impact of the cluster participating projects towards the European Industry and Society and hence effectively support the objectives established by European Commission and the EeB-PPP by addressing in a holistic way the relevant technical/technological, industrial, economic, societal, organizational and regulatory challenges.

AMANAC is the cluster of all the Advanced Material and nanotechnology PPP-EeB projects under FP7. The cluster is an extension and further development of the Nano-E2B-Cluster, formed in 2011. It broadens the field of activities of the currently participating projects in a self- sustaining way.

AMANAC currently represents 30 European projects and about 280 projects partners. The projects have been grouped in the following six Thematic Areas:

  • Insulation material: AEROCOINs, HIPIN, VIP4ALL, HOMESKIN, ENE-HVAC, NANOHVAC, nanoCOOL, EENSULATE, GELCLAD, WALL IN ONE, INNOVIP
  • Embodied Energy: SUS-CON, LEEMA, BioBuild, Eco-Binder, ISOBIO
  • Smart Windows: HARWIN, MEM4WIN, SMARTBLIND, WINSMART
  • Lightweight Components: ADAPTIWALL, ELISSA, MF-RETROFIT, SESBE, FoAM-Build
  • Indoor Enviroment: Brimee, Eco-SEE, H-HOUSE, OSIRYS, CETIEB
  • Pilot Production: NANOLEP

The main objective of AMANAC is to join efforts in order to promote synergies and fields of cooperation among Projects whose activities focus on energy efficiency in the building environment. AMANAC Cluster will allow the involved projects to be more productive, competitive, successful and support them to establish a broader social and industrial impact.
