Multi-dimensional data driven services to foster residential building retrofitting programmes in the implementation of SECAPs

Retabit
in a nutshell


Multi–dimensional data driven services to foster residential building retrofitting programmes in the implementation of SECAPs.

Retabit is a Research, Development and Innovation project co-funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and carried out by the research group ARC Engineering and Architecture La Salle (coordinator) and IREC, the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research

Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs) are a key instrument for the reduction of energy consumption in buildings and for the sustainable development of cities. Although these plans - and the SEAPs that preceded them - have been adopted by a large number of local administrations, there are some fundamental difficulties that hinder their effectiveness, including the lack of data from the multiple sectors (building, energy, economy, financing) involved in the renovation of buildings, and the lack of information systems that interrelate these data to assess the impact of the actions taken over long periods of time.

To help overcome these difficulties, RETABIT will develop a service platform that will provide the multiple actors involved in large-scale residential building renovation with the tools they need to assess the state of the building stock in an urban area and its renovation potential, to develop possible retrofitting scenarios based on multidimensional indicators, and to monitor the impact of their implementation over time.

Goals



The main objectives of Retabit are:

check-circle

Indicators for SECAPS and SDGs

To define indicators to assess retrofitting scenarios that consider environmental, social, and economic sustainability dimensions.
check-circle

Building energy-related data

To integrate data from multiple domains and scales, in order to facilitate a holistic understanding of the building retrofitting.
check-circle

Multiscale and multidimensional models

To create multidimensional models to analyse buildings at different urban scales.
check-circle

Building archetypes

To create multidimensional building archetypes to characterize buildings in selected urban areas.
check-circle

The RETABIT platform

To provide an online service platform to support the implementation of major renovation plans for the deep renovation of the residential building stock
