Panel Discussions

We will host two panel discussions at SBE22Delft. Hear from some of Europe’s thought leaders on approaches for speeding up the pace of energy renovations in buildings.

Panel: Renovation Wave, the Dutch Approach

In the Netherlands, goals set in the EU Renovation Wave Strategy are supported by the Dutch Climate Agreement for the Built Environment. Despite the clear GHG reduction targets set out in the agreement, there are no regulations in place to ensure that existing buildings will be renovated at a suitable pace to meet those targets. Is the Climate Agreement indeed working and are we on track? What is needed to speed up the pace of renovations to reach the EU goal of reducing GHG emissions by 55% compared to 1990 levels by 2030? Panelists include:

  • Teun Bokhoven, Chair Dutch Climate Agreement Build Environment, Chair of TKI Urban Energy and founder and former President of NVDE (Renewable Energy Association of the Netherlands)
  • Sorcha Edwards, Secretary General, Housing Europe. Sorcha leads the team and coordinates the network for maximum impact aiming at better regulation, better knowledge and better finance for housing in EU and International policy-making. 
  • Zeno Winkels, An environmental economist and  Director of the Dutch Tenant Union, Woonbond
  • Robert Dijksterhuis, Envoy Sustainable Building, Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. He works on the European Green Deal, specifically with regards to the transition in the built environment
  • Folkert Linnemans, an innovator in the construction sector, focusing on the energy transition and is developing innovative and scalable products for the housing market (renovation / new buildings) and utility market. He co-created the Future Factory, the Dreamhûs (at the Green Village), and several ESCO’s (energy service companies). Now he works as a Product Developer for Borg, an energy storage company.

Panel: Industrialization for Renovation

Industrialization is seen as a key solution for scaling up energy renovations and for reaching targets for the  existing building stock. Many concepts have been developed and are available on the market today. While industrialization is taking a flight for new construction, large scale adoption for renovation is still lacking. What are the bottlenecks for scaling up and how can we reach the large numbers required to meet our targets? Panelists include:

  • Emma  Hartholt, Policy advisor Innovative and Sustainable Building, Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations
  • Arjen Adriaanse, Director of Science at TNO Buildings, Infrastructure and Maritime
  • Holger Wallbaum, Professor in Sustainable building, Chalmers University of Technology and lead author of the affordable climate-neutrality chapter of the UNECE/UN Habitat Housing 2030 initiative

Workshops

More workshops will be announced soon!

Cost-effective Building Renovation at District Level Combining Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies

Workshop Chaired by Manuela Almeida, Operating Agent IEA EBC Annex 75, University Minho, Portugal

The expected housing Renovation Wave requires  breakthroughs in renovation at district level, particularly regarding cost-effective strategies, policy instruments and business models. In this session international contributors will present the main outcomes from the IEA EBC Annex 75  project, showing the development of building renovation at district level and providing guidance to policy makers and all actors involved in the renovation chain for improving their strategies for the implementation of energy saving and renewables in urban districts. Session supported by the Dutch Enterprise Agency (RVO).

BIM workflows and tools to support the energy-efficient renovation of the EU residential building stock

Workshop Chaired by Francesco Cinquini, BIM4Ren representative, Project Manager, TNO (partner of BIM4Ren)

The construction sector is currently not able to achieve the required renovation rate at an adequate level of quality. While BIM represents an enormous potential for boosting the efficacy and efficiency of building renovation, it is still underexploited. The workshop is to discuss workflow adaptations and developments for enabling practitioners to exploit the potential of Open BIM for the renovation of the EU residential building stock.

In particular, the workshop focuses on the adaptations of the methods and tools to the actual needs and levels of expertise of practitioners for making the most out of BIM; both as a data exchange format as well as a collaborative process on a semantically enriched building information models.

The results presented come from two European projects:

  • BIM4Ren (bim4ren.eu)
  • BIM-SPEED (bim-speed.eu)

Digital Building Passports as Meeting Points for Green Finance and Green Construction Projects

Workshop Organized by York Ostermeyer, Chief Executive Officer, ChillServices

Digital Building Passports or Building Logbooks are increasingly perceived as critical future data repositories that mark the transition of the construction sector from analogue processes to digital ones.
 
While a number of data platforms for building owners exist, these are often proprietary systems that focus on a limited number of services.
 
The work of the UNEP Global ABC aims at providing a holistic, open source, and modular data base that manages data under the governance of the building owner. The building owner can then give access to contract services based on his data.
 
To identify priorities of the development of the prototyping platform, the Work Area 5 of the Global ABC invites stakeholders with an interest in providing services based on building passport data to present their vision of these services in our workshop.
 
The workshop will be conducted as a cooperation between the UNEP Global ABC and the EIT Climate KIC project MEDIUS.

Facing the challenges in the heating transition in the built environment by linking electricity and heating networks

Workshop Organized by Mirjam Harmelink, Programme Manager Urban Energy Institute, TU Delft

The objective of the Dutch government is to disconnect all buildings from the natural gas grid and replace these with a sustainable (collective) heat supply based on a fully electric, hybrid or connecting to low-temperature heating grids. All these solutions require extensive use of electricity, and we are already reaching the limits of the existing energy infrastructure in lots of areas. Implementation of sustainable heating solutions in existing and new building areas is already put on hold due to a lack of grid capacity.

Research shows that potential solutions to this problem are available on the neighbourhood level by coupling of different energy carriers and systems in an integrated way. This means that we need to move from optimization and improvement of individual components (improving the performance of a single heat pump, designing net-zero homes etc.) by an individual stakeholder, to collective actions to optimize performance on the neighbourhood level.

In this workshop, we will present use cases from the Netherlands to demonstrate potential collective solutions and will discuss the role of different stakeholders to turn these into viable business cases.

Perennial Mission-Oriented Innovation Programs in the Netherlands: Results and Opportunities

Workshop Chaired by Guus Mulder, Program Manager Energy efficient renovation of buildings, TKI Urban Energy

In the Netherlands Perannial Mission oriented Innovation Programs are the pivot point between governmental subsidies, research in research organisations and companies. In this session the working and content of the relevant Perannial Mission oriented Innovation Programs is presented, as well as the relevant innovation subsidies that are available for research into the energy transition in the built environment. Furthermore, the opportunities for international collaboration in these innovation subsidies are discussed. After presenting current and future results of innovation projects, you will be asked to give your ideas about the topics that should be included in the Innovation Program in the coming years.

Simple web-based tools for engineers and residents to co-create and find best home renovations for local communities

Workshop Chaired by Dr. Ioulia Ossokina & Dr. Pieter Pauwels, Technical University of Eindhoven

Millions of homes need to adopt sustainable energy technologies in the coming years. This transition is faster and cheaper if communities (blocks or neighbourhoods) can invest collectively. But how to find optimal energy solutions when community members differ in their preferences for environment, comfort and cost?

At TU Eindhoven we develop web-based games and platforms for co-creation between engineers and residents. These allow to find best sustainable renovations fitting both, divergent residents’ needs and technical home characteristics.

The workshop explains the tools and discusses three concrete pilots run with partners. An interactive intermezzo allows to try out a game and a platform. The workshop and the tools are a collaboration between information and social scientists. cooperatives and area development. 

Steering the market to focus on actual energy performance in home energy renovations [Offered in Dutch]

Workshop Organized by Drs.Ir. Marleen Spiekman, TNO

Momenteel worden systemen ontwikkeld o.b.v. theoretische prestaties, waarbij de EPC punten vaak leidend zijn. In de praktijk zien we dat de prestaties echter regelmatig afwijken van de theorie. Eigenlijk zouden we innovaties en maatregelenpakketten moeten ontwikkelen op basis van werkelijke prestaties. Hoe krijgen we de markt zo ver om dit te gaan doen?

Vragen die hierbij spelen zijn:

  • Hoe kunnen we ervoor zorgen dat niet op EPC wordt gestuurd?
  • Hoe kunnen we zorgen dat meer gebruik wordt gemaakt van monitoring?
  • Hoe kunnen we zorgen dat innovaties meer mensgericht worden ontworpen?
  • Hoe kunnen we ervoor zorgen dat mensen de innovaties beter snappen?
  • Hoe kunnen we werkelijke prestaties meenemen in regelgeving?

Learn how to apply behavioural insights to reduce consumer demand for energy

Workshop Chaired by Ondrej Kacha, Behavioural Scientist, The Behaviouralist

Public and private organisations have several instruments at hand to reduce consumer demand for energy. These instruments can take the form of information campaigns, various subsidy programs, or regulations to encourage consumers to adopt greener technology or develop energy-efficient habits or travel more sustainably. However, the well-intended programs often stumble over people’s unwillingness to change, lack of interest, or limited attention. As part of this workshop, we will introduce a new online toolkit developed by the Users TCP Behavioural Insights Platform that helps policymakers consider psychological factors that might affect the success of their policy. In the workshop, participants will learn how use the tool to make energy programs and policies more behaviourally informed and ultimately more likely to succeed.
