EU-GUGLE - Sustainable renovation models for smarter cities
The EU-GUGLE project sets out to demonstrate the feasibility of nearly-zero energy building renovation models in view of triggering large-scale, Europe -wide replication in smart cities and communities by 2020.
The project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of nearly-zero energy building renovation models in view of triggering large-scale, Europe-wide replication in smart cities and communities by 2020. During the projects, the cities of Vienna (AT), Aachen (DE), Milan (IT), Sestao (ES), Tampere (FI), Bratislava (SK), Gothenburg (SE), Gaziantep (TR) and Plovdiv (BU) will join efforts to combine the latest research results relevant to smart renovation of groups of buildings at district level and use this knowledge to renovate 226.000m² of living space. By implementing a balanced mix of technical, socio-economic and financial solutions adapted to local needs, the participating cities aim to achieve 40 to 80% primary energy savings per pilot district while increasing the share of renewable energy sources by 25% by the end of the project. The main output will be the integration of the results into comprehensive ’smart renovation strategies’ that will be easily transposable to other municipalities.
