The H2020 project 4RinEU (Robust and Reliable technology concepts and business models for triggering deep Renovation of Residential buildings in EU) has finalised its first demo case in Norway, renovated with a wooden prefabricated multi-functional façade integrating photovoltaic panels, designed and optimised with the tool Early Reno, developed by eurac research that coordinates the project. The building is a small multi-family house in the city of Oslo, belonging to the portfolio of Boligbygg, the largest social housing agency in Norway.

The increasing integration of decentralized electricity production from renewable energy sources is often suggested as a key technology striving towards a sustainable energy system, mitigating fuel poverty and climate change. In many countries, the growing share of renewable energy sources (RES) goes in parallel with the extensive electrification of demand, e.g. replacement of traditional cars with electrical vehicles or displacement of fossil fuel heating systems, such as gas or oil boilers, with energy efficient heat pump.

Position paper Annex 67
Annex 67 “Energy Flexible Buildings”, is a collaborative project supported by the Energy in Buildings and Communities program of the International Energy Agency. It aims to find a common definition, assessment methodology and to evaluate the flexibility potential of different building typologies and case studies in order to provide a common framework for the future implementation of energy flexibility in buildings.

New design tool and approaches, and innovative construction methods are enabling architects and engineers to conceive and develop increasingly complex and daring building envelopes. This process is rapidly reshaping our built environment, and transforming the concept of building envelope itself, which is no longer a passive and static element that only separates the indoor environment from the outdoor world. In this fast changing context, one of the major issues is the evaluation of the performances of such complex façade systems.

The building façade not only provides the aesthetic signature of a building, but also important functions, such as daylight provision, glare protection, solar gain management and visual contact with the outside, which make the building usable and energy efficient. These functions often oppose each other, so the selection and design of façade systems and their control for a certain building application should depend on those functions that the designer wants to promote to the detriment of the other functions.
