6th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting


It was a great pleasure to be in Grenoble for the 6th progress meeting of the ZERO-PLUS project. The project consortium was welcomed by the president of OPAC38 and the entire team of OPAC38 working on the project. In the meeting critical issues were discussed and important decisions were taken for the next steps of the project that involve the monitoring and verification of the four ZERO-PLUS settlements’ performance and the business plan for the technologies and processes developed within the project.

The highlight of the meeting was without a doubt the visit to the French case study in Voreppe where an 18 apartment Net Zero Energy building block is being built by OPAC38. Project partners had the chance to hear from the representatives of OPAC38, the architect of the building and engineers from ENERPOL, how the vision of ZERO-PLUS is coming into life in Voreppe. Among the particularly interesting parts of the building that the consortium visited was the PV ANERDGY station, installed at the roof edge in order to support the energy needs of the dwelling.

 

5th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting


The 5th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting took place on the 14th to 16th of March 2018. It was hosted by the project partner JRHT (Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust) at the Bedern Hall in York, UK.

The main focus of the meeting was on the status and planning for the construction of the case studies and on the business plan for commercial-scale implementation of the technologies and processes developed in the project.

The meeting was attended by one member of the External Advisory Panel (EAP) coming from the construction industry (Bouygues Construction) that provided his interdisciplinary view of the project progress and the construction planning.

 

ZERO-PLUS case studies workshop


A full day workshop dedicated to the ZERO-PLUS case studies was organised in parallel to our fourth progress meeting. The workshop took place on the 20th of September in Chania, Greece, and was hosted by project partner TUC.

The workshop helped:

  • Evaluate the incorporation of the innovative technologies in the design of the settlements
  • Evaluate the energy management, storage, and monitoring system of each settlement
  • Identify risks in the realization of the case studies.

A panel of four distinguished external experts from both higher education institutions and from the private sector participated in the workshop providing a critical review of the realisation progress and planning.


4th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting


The 4th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting took place in Chania, Greece on the 21st and 22nd of September 2017. The meeting was hosted by the project partner TUC (Technical University of Crete). The main focus of the meeting was on the status and planning for the construction of the case studies but also on the integration of the ZERO-PLUS technologies in the design.

The meeting was attended by two members of the External Advisory Panel (EAP) coming from both academia and the construction industry (University of Palermo and Bouygues Construction). The members of the EAP provided their interdisciplinary view of the project progress and the construction planning.


3rd ZERO-PLUS progress meeting


The 3rd ZERO-PLUS progress meeting took place in Palermo, Italy on 16th -17th March 2017. The meeting was hosted by the project partner ARCA. The focus of the meeting was on the planning for the construction of the case studies and on the business case for the ZERO-PLUS.

The meeting was attended by three members of the External Advisory Panel (EAP) coming from both academia and the construction industry (University of Palermo, Bouygues Construction and ETH-Zurich). The members of the EAP provided their interdisciplinary view of the project progress and the construction planning.

A visit to the ARCA solar lab (FAE-HCPV and the LFR-FRESCO installations) and the SolarInvent laboratory (freescoo HVAC) was also organised where the ZERO-PLUS technologies were demonstrated.
