A new multimillion euro research project which will demonstrate how buildings can be renovated to use ‘near zero energy’. The Retrofit Kit will bring together a number of advanced, cost efficient, and energy saving technologies – including smart windows with pre-heating and cooling technology, ventilation heat recovery, photovoltaic panels, and nature-based technologies – which can be fitted 30% quicker than typical renovations. It’s hoped that implementation of the technologies would have a payback period of under 15 years. Four demonstration sites will be created as part of the project which will offer practical, real-world examples of ‘Near Zero Energy Buildings’ or ‘nZEBs’ retrofit.  Located in the UK, Denmark, Switzerland and Spain, the sites will demonstrate the Retrofit Kit’s effectiveness in different climates, and using different construction methods. Work on the retrofit buildings will begin in summer 2019. Tyndall will develop energy harvesting and battery life simulation models to assist with deployment of wireless sensors to assess viability to power the sensors using ambient energies via energy harvesting and also be able to predict battery life. IERC will develop business models and provide guidance on regulatory and citizen engagement.
