BRITA in PuBs project is a Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign Partner

Demonstration Buildings

The BRITA in PuBs project aims at increasing the market penetration of innovative and effective retrofit solutions to improve energy efficiency and implement renewables, with moderate additional costs. This is realised by the exemplary retrofit of 8 demonstration public buildings in the 4 participating European regions (North, Central, South, East). The general aim of the retrofits at the demonstration buildings is to reduce the primary energy demand for heating, ventilation, cooling and domestic hot water by factor 2 and at the same time to improve the user satisfaction by also factor 2. Additionally, research work (including socio-economic research) and training and dissemination work (based on the results of the demonstration projects) have been undertaken.
