3rd April 2006 Helsinki, Finland RENAISSANCE Project Site Visit 2007 - Lyon Latest Developments in CONCERTO and CONCERTO PLUS 30 th October 2007 Doris Oesterreicher, CONCERTO PLUS
Latest Developments in CONCERTO and CONCERTO PLUS -CONCERTO PLUS: What it does and latest developments -Recent Developments in the CONCERTO communities -The CONCERTO Vision!
CONCERTO PLUS: What it does and latest developments
CONCERTO communities are expected to work towards a completely integrated energy policy by using a combination of measures such as: The main focus of the CONCERTO communities: Renewable Energy Research Monitoring Training Polygeneration Energy efficiency INTEGRATIVE APPROACH
-To strengthen team working within the CONCERTO initiative -To encourage associated communities and new ones to participate, or to create new projects -To add value to the results of the CONCERTO projects -To spread the knowledge about the CONCERTO initiative and its benefits amongst Europe by creating an umbrella image for all projects -To coordinate analysis and monitoring -To provide Policy Recommendations based on the results of the CONCERTO projects -To enable networking to share the results with other European platforms such as the EPBD …TO MAXIMISE THE IMPACT OF THE CONCERTO INITIATIVE ! The main focus of CONCERTO PLUS:
Dissemination Technical and Non-Technical Analysis Networking Knowledge Sharing Policy Recommendations The main focus of CONCERTO PLUS: Across all CONCERTO projects On all levels: Community / Regional / National / European
CONCERTO PLUS: Latest Developments -Socio Economic Evaluation: Socio Economic Matrix -Technical Evaluation: The Technical Monitoring Database -Site Visits -Networking -Dissemination: The CONCERTO DVD
CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Socio Economic Evaluation -SOCIO ECONOMIC MATRIX: -Tool for clustering similar approaches as the basis for individual project assessment -Socio-economic matrix tool consists of criteria; detailed definition indicators related with criteria, definitions and examples tools for data acquisition; definition The matrix is made available on-line for comparison and evaluation!
CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Technical Evaluation OUR TASKS To collect results (monitoring and calculated) of all projects of all communities of all countries To make this results comparable: across different countries / systems / building types To summarize the results in a meaningful manner To be able to assess what has worked were / what hasn’t worked / why has it not worked? what can we learn from this? To use this data for Policy Recommendations: What legal / fiscal / funding mechanisms should be altered / implemented to increase sustainability in European communities?
CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Technical Evaluation HOW DO WE DO THIS? - By creating ‘Baselines’ for all CONCERTO communities to allow for comparison and impact assessment to…Assess RES, EE and polygeneration systems and measures throughout all CONCERTO communities Assess actual energy performance of communities Assess which systems and measures are most economically viable - By visiting the communities and their technical experts to find the real barriers / challenges in their projects - By collecting all calculated and monitored data in a ‘Technical Monitoring Database’ for short and long term evaluation -Communities will be encouraged to contribute their data to the database after the end of the CONCERTO project - We will then have a ‘real’ database of monitoring data across many European countries
CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Technical Evaluation WHY? The CONCERTO initiative is a unique project which combines for the first time a series of communities across Europe This will provide invaluable ‘real’ monitoring data throughout the building sector in Europe! The results of each individual project can thus shape our future energy policy We will have a real ‘return’ on the results: e.g.: improved legislation, improved funding schemes, research that is focusing on the real needs of Europe’s communities TO MAKE A REAL IMPACT!
CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Technical Evaluation The CONCERTO Technical Monitoring Database Technical Monitoring Database (Screenshots)
Regional site visits: -Once a year for all CONCERTO communities in one country -To establish a strong CONCERTO network between the communities on a national level (Network coordination group) -Agree on national standards, guidelines and baselines for technical monitoring -Establish common guidelines for policy recommendations -Establish a CONCERTO dissemination structure on national level CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Site visits
Project Site visits: -Once a year for each CONCERTO project (organised ideally in conjunction with project meetings) -Development of project specific methodological standards of Socio- economic issues -Open questions of project management issues -Visit of demonstration projects CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Site visits
Visit other experts on their site visits -Make site visits available in the Concerto Monthly e-mail -Invite other experts Knowledge Management -Expert Talks on database are not really used; Expert-e-mail groups as alternative for cross-sharing of information CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Networking
The CONCERTO DVD CONCERTO PLUS latest developments: Dissemination
Recent Developments in the CONCERTO communities
CONCERTO Communities: Demonstration Projects -Overview of most recent developments in some other communities -Highlights from Demonstration Projects -Topics of common interest from other communities
CONCERTO Communities: act2 / Hanover LISTER BAD -3200 m² Water Area -Largest open-air swimming pool in Hanover -Thermal Solar Collectors on the flat roof of the changing rooms -1890 m² of polypropylene solar absorbers -Robust system adapted for low temperature heating required for a swimming pool -The swimming pool has already been opened in May 2007
CONCERTO Communities: act2 / Hanover 60s APARTMENT BUILDINGS -Replacement of single apartment gas heating systems through district heating -Thermal improvement of the buildings’ envelope (walls, ceilings) and replacement of the windows by low-e glazing -Cold bridges have been analysed and treated where necessary -None of the apartments do have ventilation systems; the buildings will therefore continually be checked to assess the actual indoor air quality
CONCERTO Communities: ECO-City / Helsingborg - Helsingør KVARTERET FRONTEN 3 -50 new ECO-dwellings over 14 storeys -Additional insulation (above current Building Regulations) -Low-e windows -Heat recovery ventilation -District heating -Energy monitoring devices -Pre-fabrication of the façade -Expected to be finished in January 2008
CONCERTO Communities: ECO-City / Helsingborg - Helsingør TÜRKIET (PORTALEN) -107 new ECO-dwellings in a 6 to 7 storey building -Pre-fabrication -Additional insulation -Energy monitoring -Low-e windows -Heat recovery ventilation -District heating -80m2 of evacuated tube collectors -Expected to be finished in March 2008
CONCERTO Communities: ECO-City / Helsingborg - Helsingør Other ongoing demonstration projects: -New Prototype for Comfort Metering (see image) -Rehabilitation of boiler station to use biomass (5MW) -2MW Wind Power Turbine (Planning stage)
CONCERTO Communities: sesac / Växjö VÄLLE BROAR -8-stories wood building -Large extent of Pre-fabrication -Eco-Buildings (additional insulation, high quality glazing) -District Heating -The challenge is the air- tightness and achieving Passive-House Standard for a Test-Building!
CONCERTO Communities: sesac / Växjö BISKOPSHAGEN (Garden City) -A series of 2-storey buildings each -consisting of 4-6 apartments -Bearing structure is concrete and the façade wooden panels (which are pre-fabricated in a tent on site) -All aspects of Eco-Buildings (additional insulation, heat recovery ventilation etc.) -Quality insurance on the construction site: trainings and close cooperation with site workers are supported!
