National Energy Conservation Agency participates in an international project called DREEM. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020. The project concerns the reduction of energy consumption in a group of buildings. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the details.

Energy efficient renovations in the built sector are key to reducing energy consumption in the coming years. This is because around 80% of the global building stock of 2050 has already been constructed and many of these buildings have very poor energy performance. DREEAM aims to show that renovating at a larger scale opens the opportunity for a better integration of renewable energy and is generally more cost effective. The project demonstrates a multi-building and single owner renovation approach that can achieve a 75% reduction of total energy demand. DREEAM focuses on social and public housing (representing 12% of the EU building stock), whose owners manage large portfolios of residential buildings with high potential for energy performance improvements. The DREEAM approach is implemented on pilot sites in the UK, Sweden and Italy. These demonstration sites are to validate the DREEAM method in different climate, cultural and institutional configurations. In parallel, DREEAM develops replicable concepts throughout Europe, focusing on large scale financing and multi-year tendering.

We invite you to familiarize yourself with the website of design DREEAM.
