Project description

INDU-ZERO "Industrialisation of house renovations towards energy-neutral" is a European research project in Interreg North-Sea Region (01/07/2018 - 30/06/2021).

Renovation packages towards energy neutrality are to be the solution for quick and inexpensive sustainability improvements of existing homes in north western Europe.

Prefabricated systems have various advantages

  • complete renovation with energy systems (ventilation, heat pumps, PV) and windows integrated in the prefabricated elements
  • scaffold-free, fast installation
  • limited nuisance for the building user

The aim is to produce standard renovation packages at an industrial scale (at least 15,000 per year) for half the current price.
