Sustainable technologies and combined community ap.. (STACCATO)
Sustainable technologies and combined community approaches take off
Start date: Nov 7, 2007,
End date: Nov 6, 2012
With the STACCATO project the three European capital cities Amsterdam, Budapest and Sofia, will demonstrate sustainable energy concepts in representative existing residential areas. Presently, the urban areas all facing technical arrears and a lack of social cohesion. Redevelopment is a unique opportunity to implement energy efficiency measures and renewable energy sources. STACCATO will result in more than 50% energy savings compared to a standard renovation project. Thus, the energy performances will even be better than the requirements for new housing projects.The building envelopes will be improved drastically resulting in healthy indoor climates and low energy bills. The heat distribution based energy infrastructure will be modernised. All three cities will integrate large solar thermal systems in their energy supply. Additionally Amsterdam introduces heat pumps and seasonal storage. Pivotal for realising ambitious goals is setting up a tight organisation of the redevelopment programmes.
