Languages: English

The BRITA in PuBs project is an EU-supported in tegrated demonstration and research project that aims to increase the market penetration of innovative and cost-effective retrofit solutions to improve energy efficiency and implement renewable energy in public buildings all over Europe. Firstly, this will be realised by the exemplary retrofit of eight demonstration public buildings in four European regions (North, Central, South, East). By choosing public buildings of different types such as colleges, cultural centres , nursery homes, student houses, churches etc. for implementing the measures, it will easier to reach groups of different age and social origin. Secondly, the research issu es include a socio-economic research study identifying real project-planning needs, fina ncing strategies, the development of design guidelines, the development of an internet-based knowledge tool on retrofit measures and case studies and a quality control-tool box to secure a good long-term performance of buildings and systems. 


Bringing Retrofit Innovation to Application in Public Buildings – BRITA in PuBs is therefore a leading project within the EU ECO-BU ILDINGS programme. The ECO-BUILDING concept is expected to be the meeting point of short-term development and demonstration in order to support legislative and regulatory measures for energy efficiency and enhanced use of renewable energy solution within the building sector, which go beyond the Directive of the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD)
