Resumen:
Una universidad británica busca centros de investigación interesados en unirse a un consorcio para participar en un proyecto sobre bajas emisiones de carbono (Interreg para el noroeste de Europa. Prioridad 2). El objetivo es aumentar el conocimiento y el impacto de nuevas tecnologías con bajas emisiones de carbono (calefacción, iluminación, almacenaje, control y optimización) en cualquier arquetipo de edificio no doméstico en un número específico de ciudades europeas. Las expresiones de interés deben presentarse antes del 15 de febrero de 2015.

Interreg North West - Looking for research institutions to join consortium on low carbon project
Summary:
A leading university is looking for research institutions putting a consortium together to bid for a low carbon project under Priority 2 North West Europe (NWE) Interreg, aiming at increasing the uptake and impact of innovative low carbon technologies across all non-domestic building archetypes in a number of European cities using a building user focus.
Description:
The main aim of this project will be to increase the uptake and impact of innovative low carbon technologies (heating, lighting, storage, control and optimisation) across all non-domestic building archetypes in a number of European cities using a building user focus.

This project will be part of priority 2 - Low Carbon, addressing Thematic Objective 2: To reduce Green House Gases (GHG) emissions in NWE through international co-operation of low carbon, energy or climate protection strategies. The focus is addressing low carbon in non-domestic buildings, including both the public and commercial stock within the city.

Specific project objectives

· Development of overarching transnational infrastructure to share learning and data between participating cities to support uptake of low carbon technologies in the non-domestic sector, including public and commercial buildings.
· Development of data of carbon emissions for public and commercial non-domestic buildings.
· Creation of benchmarking capacity based on this data.
· Development of demonstrators based on specific technologies and processes with a focus on usability issues, such as end user comfort and control, operation and maintenance or energy management.
· Development of structured network within each city to push forward low carbon non-domestic buildings.

Background

The council is currently developing a work programme to support the retrofit of all non-domestic and public buildings in a specific area (including mixed use and heritage sites). This program coordinated by the University will aim to deliver the deepest possible energy efficiency savings to enable the North West area and other European partner cities to achieve their challenging carbon reduction targets.

This work has identified a number of city specific challenges, which appear to be applicable to different extents in North West Europe urban environments;

· Lack of detailed performance and benchmarking data on current performance, particularly in the commercial sector to help establish baselines.
· Performance gap between as designed and in use for low carbon buildings
· Issues of usability and complexity around energy management and low carbon in buildings
· Lack of accessible demonstrators, with evidence to support the business case and make risk of implementation more transparent for the market.
· Barriers to adoption including issues such as client awareness, supply chain readiness, split incentives and a well-developed innovation context, such as links to research base.

Specific work in the domestic sector has seen a growth in adoption of low carbon retrofit. The project intends to build on previous actions in various North West European partner cities around sustainable retrofit and low carbon buildings.

The first North West Europe Interreg VB call for projects is likely to be announced in April 2015 with a deadline in May 2015. Expressions of interest should be sent by 15 of February 2015.

Eligible institutions must be located in an eligible geographical area recognised by North West Europe Interreg.
