Project start “outPHit – Deep retrofits made faster, cheaper and more reliable”

As part of the EU program Horizon 2020, the outPHit project was started (lead: PHI GmbH, DE) with nine other European partners. The UIBK (Unit of Energy Efficient Buildings, EEB) is involved for the F&E of energy-efficient solutions for the serial renovation of buildings. Best practice projects in Tyrol (St. Johann) will be examined, for which a new monitoring concept will be developed.

Our building stock is generally inefficient. The energy that our buildings waste makes them both key contributors to climate change and amplifiers of energy poverty. Deep retrofitting to tackle this waste and improve building performance is thus rightly at the heart of building-related policies at all governmental levels. Yet while one-stop-shop and “energiesprong” ap­proaches have helped standardise retro­fitting methods or make them otherwise more ac­cessible, the delivery of consistently high quality deep retrofits remains a challenge. OutPHit pairs such approaches with the rigour of Passive House principles to make deep retrofits cost-effective, faster and more reliable.

On the basis of case stud­ies across Europe and in collaboration with a wide variety of stake­holders, outPHit is addressing barriers to the uptake of high quality deep retrofits while facil­itating the development of high performance renovation systems, tools for decision making and quality assurance safeguards.

We are just getting started. Stay tuned for more.
