DigitAl and physical incrEmental renovation packaGes/systems enhancing envIronmental and energetic behaviour and use of Resources

The main objective of the AEGIR project is to demonstrate a physical and digital sustainable framework that boosts the take up of deep retrofitting achieving nearly zero energy buildings. This approach is supported by innovative, industrialized, high performance and non-intrusive multifunctional plug-and-play envelope solution to increase the use of locally deployed renewable technologies.

A global design of refurbishment solutions based on a broad perspective of sustainable principles will support the project approach during the entire process (materials and products) with a defined roadmap in terms of resource circularity. As an outcome, urban mining processes for the different components, including reuse of existing resource stocks as well as future-proofing of new solutions will be introduced. As a result, the awareness towards circular solutions and on existing standards among the end users, the transfer of significant project results into related international (ISO), European (CEN) and national standardization processes will enhance the scalability and impact of solutions. 

Besides, a digital ecosystem of services will improve the whole construction workflow (from design, manufacturing, construction, and operation) reducing costs with a circular approach. A socio-economic model will provide financial schemes and business models at building scale. To demonstrate these objectives the project will deploy all these solutions in four demo buildings in Spain, France, Denmark, and Romania.
