VELUX has announced the launch of the first reproducible climate renovation project in Brussels, Belgium. A climate renovation is a unique concept in which excellent indoor comfort is combined with high energy efficiency. After experimenting with several demonstration buildings across Europe, the roof window producer will now renovate a house in the garden-city Bon Air in Anderlecht.
The uniqueness of the VELUX climate renovation project lies in its reproducibility in both financial and technical terms. Indeed, the current challenge is no longer how to build or renovate low energy standards, but how to do so at a reasonable cost. The experiment aims to define an affordable solution that can be applied all over Europe. The selected building typology was chosen on an analysis of the real estate market potential, with the hope that a widespread implementation of this concept will lead to large-scale energy savings.
