Demonstration of very low energy new buildings


Other - Green Building


Framework of demonstration and dissemination of very innovative and cost-effective energy efficiency technologies for the achievement of very low energy new buildings

Project Summary

This framework is based in three pillars:

  • Analysis of suitable energy efficiency technologies (technical and economic viability),
  • Demonstration activity deployed in three new buildings,
  • Dissemination at European Level.

Three new buildings will be used as pilots, deploying in each one a set of very innovative measures, constructive elements for energy optimization, high efficient equipment and advanced energy management. All the above allows to enhance the overall energy efficiency of the building in order to achieve consumption (primary energy) lower than 60 kWh/(m2yr).


It is expected an important impact in building sector, in particular in new buildings, in the following four main areas:

  • Energetic: Drastic energy consumption reduction (more than 50 %),
  • Environmental: Significant CO2 emissions reduction (more than 60 %),
  • Building sector business: encouraging a mass market for very low energy new buildings, facilitating understanding of all stakeholders,
  • European policies: contributing to boost the implementation of standards and regulations.

Some of our competences in research and technology transfer

Research project


Solar To Hydrogen Hybrid Cycles

Objective: To demonstrate that hydrogen "green" production is possible through the exploitation of solar power.

Research project


Formulations and Computational Engineering

The project aimed to develop an open integrated framework that connects materials models at various levels of complexity, experimental data sets and commercial information (e.g. ingredients and processing costs), so that decision makers can use a wider variety of key performance indicators.

Research project

Apulia Space

Sviluppo di Tecnologie Abilitanti nei segmenti Spazio, Terra e Utente

The project covered a wide range of space-related issues ranging from exploration of the Universe to Earth observation, including systems, the management of remote data reception, and awareness-raising activities for regional consumer acceptance of the use of space systems.
