E2VENT

Energy Efficient Ventilated Facades for Optimal Adaptability and Heat Exchange enabling novel NZEB architectural concepts for the refurbishment of existing buildings

Objectives of the project

E2VENT will develop, demonstrate and validate a cost effective, high energy efficient, low CO2 emissions, replicable, low intrusive, systemic approach for retrofitting of residential and commercial buildings, through the integration of an innovative adaptive ventilated façade system, including:

  • Smart modular heat recovery unit which improves Indoor Air quality while minimizing energy losses
  • A latent system using PCM that allows thermal storage mode for the reduction of energy peaks
  • Cost effective, easy to install, high performance adapted products for thermal insulation
  • A smart building management system enhancing the user experience and allowing future adaptability

Milestones to achieve

Foreseen impact will be:

    • Energy savings of more than 40%, by the holistic use of the ventilated façade.
    • At least a reduction of 40% of CO2 emissions, as a consequence of the achieved primary energy savings
    • Reduced thermal and electrical peak loads
    • Typical performance target of less than 25 kWh/m2 year (excluding appliances)

Use of heat recovery units, natural lighting strategies, and insulation thickness; are variable depending on the characteristics of the building to be retrofitted. Therefore, EVENT retrofitting system can be adaptable to different types of buildings and climates, which makes the system versatile.
