Title

ALliance for Deep RENovation in buildings (ALDREN) - Implementing the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme, as back-bone along the whole deep renovation process


Duration
30 months (November 2017 - April 2020)


Coordinator

CSTB - Centre Scientifique et Technique du Batiment


Description

The overarching ambition of the ALDREN initiative is to consolidate, promote and implement an extended harmonized procedure, based on the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme for non-residential buildings (EVCS) and a set of relevant instruments, in order to support building deep renovation operations, all along theprocess, tackling its organizational, financial and technical components issues. In line with the development of the EVCS, the primary scope is focused on non-residential buildings (especially offices and hotels) but the real applicationis wider including residential sector.

TRI-HP Kick-off Meeting in Brussels

TRI-HP H2020 project was launched on 21st-22nd March during the first kick-off meeting, held in Brussels, hosted by REHVA. The goal of the project is the development and demonstration of flexible energy-efficient and affordable trigeneration systems based on a new approach for heat pump cycles.

ALDREN free webinar on European Voluntary Certification Scheme (EVCS)

Register to the first ALDREN free webinar scheduled on 13 June. The webinar will provide you with an overview of a European Voluntary Certification Scheme (EVCS), conceived as a tool for a harmonised energy rating of the non-residential building stock. The EVCS is the backbone of the ALDREN project, that will further develop the Scheme by including energy performance verification by measurements and Indoor Environmental Quality criteria. The webinar will suggest ALDREN’s strategy to tackle these challenges, turn them into meaningful indicators and include these concepts in a Building Renovation Passport for non-residential buildings. ALDREN experts will illustrate how this proposal can fit into the new EU policy framework and how it can relate with ongoing initiatives and existing database, such as the ENERFUND initiative.
