5TH NEWSLETTER - OCTOBER 2020

TripleA-reno Toolbox session: A lively exchange on what makes deep renovation Attractive – Acceptable – Affordable

TripleA-reno was featured as one of several tools for local governments, at the Mannheim2020 Online Conference, on October 2.

What means can be used to scale up the renovation of building stock in cities, to ultimately achieve ambitious climate, energy and public health goals? The work of the TripleA-reno innovative gamified platform was introduced by project coordinator Dr. Simona d’Oca, who described how TripleA-reno drives building renovations by better responding to user requirements and removing market barriers.

By means of a live demonstration by Ana Sanchis Huertas from the IVE, participants got a behind the scenes look at the design and architecture of the platform, as well as a run-through of the front-end application, which help users assess the impacts of renovation activities on energy consumption, indoor environmental quality as well as health and well-being.

An Open Gamified Platform supporting deep renovation and a friend for municipalities

Renovating our cities’ building stock will be a key challenge in this decade, as we strive to decarbonise Europe in order to mitigate climate change. Local governments are already implementing innovative measures to push up our renovation rates, but in light of the dramatic economic impacts of the global pandemic – and with the construction sector expected to play a key role in our economic recovery – these efforts must be increased even further.

Solutions such as the TripleA-reno platform can be valuable additions to a government’s toolkit to encourage local job creation, achieve GHG emissions reductions, combat energy poverty, reduce (non-renewable) energy consumption, provide greater quality control of energy efficient renovation work and provide data to support evidence-based policy making.

Introducing the TripleA-reno Combined Labelling Scheme: a resource for public buildings

The TripleA-reno Combined Labelling Scheme is the first such scheme developed especially for the renovation of dwellings, covering energy performance, indoor environmental quality, and well-being indicators. 

Building on an analysis of existing labelling schemes and thanks to the close collaboration of the consortium partners, the labelling scheme is technically robust whilst also resulting in performance ratings that can be easily understood by non-professionals.

Are you interested in the Combined Labelling Scheme? The TripleA-reno team is organising a BuildUP webinar on November 26. Stay tuned for more information to come!

Entertain and Engage with the
Energy Transition Game

The TripleA-reno team, together with DWA, has designed the Energy Transition Game to guide players in their quest on how to make an existing home energy efficient, gas-free or energy neutral. It is a simple and convenient entry-point on the subject of deep renovation that municipalities can use for their citizen outreach. It can be used at trainings, events, fairs, exhibitions, sustainability days, open days to engage with any variety of “players”, from city staff, construction and energy professionals, to students and homeowners.

Watch the Energy Transition Game Home Show video to find out more about the game. Contact Jan Cromwijk at ISSO to order your set(s) of the board game, and try it out at your next public event!

TripleA-reno visits local government and energy expert at home during pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the TripleA-reno Road Show around EU could not happen this year. The project team came up with a contingency plan, moving from a Road Show to a Home Show. Getting a glimpse into the homes of our partners, talking to them in their space.

Watch the ‘TripleA-reno Home Show #10, a conversation with Carsten Rothballer’ (local government and energy expert from ICLEI), answer questions from the TripleA-reno project coordinator Simona D'Oca, including:

  • How does your home-working space look like during the COVID-19 lockdown?
  • How will we live the city as citizens in the post-pandemic period?
  • How can we increase the level of deep renovation in the EU leveraging the current crisis?
  • What does TripleAreno represent for ICLEI & its members?
  • What is the project’s added value to the Renovation Wave?
  • What is ICLEI's role and contribution to the TripleA-reno project?
  • How could renovations be fully designed through digital platforms in future?
