Designed to make the difference

Understanding the demand-side requirements is the first step towards designing functional technology solutions. Over the past year, INFINITE partners carried out extensive research to fine-tune the project’s envelope kits for renovation

The essential role of BIPV towards energy transition

Photovoltaics on the built environment can support the achievements of the EU targets by turning buildings into decentralised energy producers

Trend paper “Renovating the building envelope – Quo vadis?”

The European Construction Sector Observatory recently published a paper on the policies and initiatives fostering the adoption of building envelopes solutions

A tool to optimise Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) can contribute to accelerate the global energy transition, producing electricity from renewable energy sources directly in the buildings.

Evaluating the social impact of retrofitting technologies

The INFINITE project is launching a survey to assess the social impacts of retrofitting technologies in the building renovation value chain.

Bringing innovation to the renovation sector

The results of the workshop organised by Huygen offer an analysis of INFINITE renovation process

Modular and industrialised solutions for building renovation

One of the options to accelerate the renovation rate looks at developing a deep retrofit approach based on modular and industrialised solutions.

Old but sustainable: buildings of the future or a utopian ideal?

The rate of renovation of European buildings has been stuck at one per cent for years, yet energy efficiency has been a key point in every European climate strategy for a decade now.
