Building Energy Efficiency for Massive Market UPtake (BEEM UP)

BEEM-UP will demonstrate the economic, social and technical feasibility of retrofitting initiatives, drastically reducing the energy consumption in existing buildings, and lay the ground for massive market uptake. BEEM-UP involves the building owners at 3 sites in France, Sweden and the Netherlands to implement an innovative approach to go beyond a 75% reduction in space heat energy consumption. Ambitious energy reduction will be demonstrated as the economically most attractive alternative for retrofitting. In integrated design the building owners, industry, designers and energy experts collaborate around the building to reach a higher performance and be more adapted to the tenant needs than if just plugging in separate solutions. New concepts will be identified that can be replicated in further retrofit projects. The main challenge is to turn energy reduction in existing buildings into standard option on the market. Going beyond pure demonstration, BEEM-UP will develop an exploitation plan based on green value, actively disseminate it across Europe, and interact with stakeholders, to create a solid demand for energy reductions by building owners, and make BEEM-UP a model for future retrofits.
