SEBR (Smart Energy Building Renovation) is a consortium of 6 European organizations that came together to respond to a competitive tender initiated by the European-funded project procuRE.
The building sector is Europe’s largest energy consumer, accounting for 40% of the EU energy consumption and for 36% of CO2 emissions today.
To reach Europe’s target of carbon neutrality by 2050, it is necessary to accelerate retrofitting since 35% of the building stock in Europe is more than 50 years old and 75% of it is energy inefficient. Today, only about 1% of the European building stock is renovated each year.
An increasing number of cities, regions and other owners of major building portfolios wish to achieve 100% renewable energy supply (RES) in their buildings. However, they are faced with barriers such as individual constraints to adapt each building, provision of supply and storage, optimization of operation and integration of solutions across technologies, lack of information and knowledge.
Currently, there are no adequate products on the market that can deliver a 100% renewable building without undertaking invasive measures to its envelope.
SEBR solutions is tackling this challenge by offering integrated solutions with the most adequate and performant technologies, easing the process for building owners and managers.
