The use of renewable energy in the building sector is today dominated by the application of solar domestic hot water and PV systems in single-family houses. In order to significantly increase the use of renewable energy in the building sector, concepts have to be developed for large buildings. In these buildings high fractions of the energy demand can only be met with renewable energy sources, when the faade is used for energy conversion in addition to the roof. This is especially true for buildings with a small roof area compared to the floor area (high-rise buildings) and for existing buildings which generally have a higher energy demand than new buildings. Therefore the main focus of the project is to convert facades of existing high-rise buildings into multifunctional, energy gaining components. This goal will be achieved through the - development of new multi-functional faade components which combine standard features and the use of renewable energy resources and the - development of new business and cost models which consider the whole life cycle of a building and which incorporate the benefits from reduced running costs and greenhouse-gas emissions. The new components will in particular profit from the application of nano-structured coatings and films which will enhance their performance and durability due to antireflective, anti-soiling and seasonal shading functionality. In order to achieve a successful development and implementation of these new technologies and concepts European key actors from construction industry and energy research have agreed to collaborate within this project. The project results will be an important support for the European technology platforms ECTP, ESTTP and PV-platform in which the project partners have a leading role.

RetroKit will develop and demonstrate multifunctional, modular, low cost and easy to install prefabricated modules, integrating efficient energy use systems and RES for systemic retrofitting of residential buildings. Aiming at external retrofitting concepts with an integration of internal renovation aspects, semi-prefabricated technological solutions will be clustered in a RetroKit Toolbox supported by a decision support system that provides data, transparency on payback, guidelines, and design support. Solutions will target aging multi-family residential buildings that represent more than half of the European building stock and consume between 65% and 80% of the total energy consumptions of EU buildings. RetroKit targets the social, technological, industrial, and economic barriers preventing retrofit. RetroKit overcomes these barriers by addressing the highest potential energy savings strategies, developing configurations of semi-prefabricated modules for industrial scale-up that integrate different functionalities into faades and roofs. RetroKit solutions include RES, free cooling and solar heating strategies, while LCA, LCC and business models will support the market take-up. RetroKit systemic approach to retrofitting will streamline the value chain, thus enabling customised mass production, industrial scale-up, and efficient construction processes for manufacturers, integrators, installers and contractors. RetroKit workplan align the S&T Objectives, with the methodology and project impact. Clear, quantified, and measurable performance metrics are established. Cost estimates for retrofit performances are already conducted demonstrating that a ROI close to 7 years is achievable by RetroKit solutions. Testing will make use of partner world class laboratories and building test facilities. Validation will involve 3 full scale buildings in different climate zones and apply the international standard IPMVP for energy savings assessment.
