The project 3ENCULT bridges the gap between conservation of historic buildings and climate protection, which is not an antagonism at all: historic buildings will only survive if maintained as living space. Energy efficient retrofit is useful for structural protection as well as for comfort reasons - comfort for users and “comfort” for heritage collections.
The joint task of conservation and energy efficient retrofit is highly interdisciplinary. The 3ENCULT consortium consists of scientists and stakeholders, especially on the level of SMEs, from the fields of diagnostics, conservation, building physics, sustainability, architecture and lighting up to cybernetics, thus guaranteeing both, the development of sustainable solutions and the impact on European economy.
Eight case studies will demonstrate and verify solutions that are applicable to the majority of European built heritage in urban areas. Building owners and local historic preservation agencies are integrated in local case study teams.

Under the coordination of the European Academy Bolzano (EURAC) in total 23 partners from different European countries develop range of solutions namely how the energy efficiency can be increased in historical buildings in cities. The interdisciplinary team had to consider not only the technical aspects of climate and the living or comfort of use, but also the monument protection. Besides the research and development partners, also the building owners and the local conservation offices are included.
In Innsbruck, the team consists from the researchers and scientists at the University of Innsbruck (UIBK, work area "Energy Efficient Building"), together with the Illuminate developers "Bartenbach LichtLabor" (BLL), Innsbruck Real Estate Company (IIG) and the the state conservator for Tyrol the Federal Monuments Office.

Pursuant to the stated objectives, the common goal for team in Tyrol is to renovate main school building in Innsbruck-Hötting built in 1929–1931 by architect Franz Baumann.

A PV-prototype system was temporarily installed for research reasons at the south facing roof at the school building NMS Hötting, the online data can be displayed here.
