National on-site trainings

After 2.5 years of active work on modular retrofitting process development MORE-CONNECT partners have prepared learning modules for engineers, craftsmen, architects etc. Learning modules of each specific country take into account local market needs and specifics. Precise schedule will be announced in early September 2017. For more detailed information please contact local research partner.

Portuguese training materials: 

Training modules are mainly are focused on modular retrofiting process design specifics (including fire safety, air – tightness and thermal bridges), 3D printing, selection of renewables, thermal comfort and energy audit.

Life cycle environment assessments (LCA) of enegy saving technologies

2ND Danish training module. The concept of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of a building energy renovation will be presented. Primary focus is on the Global Warming Potential (WP) – CO2-emissions and the non-renewable primary energy (NRPE) consumption, but also the other LCA parameters, such as ODP, Ozone Depletion Potential [kg R11-Equiv.], POCP, Photochemical Ozone Creation Potential [kg Ethene-Equiv.], AP, Acidification Potential [kg SO2-Equiv.], EP, Eutrification Potential [kg Phosphate-Equiv.] and ADP, Abiotic Depletion Potential [kg Sb-Equiv.] will be mentioned. Further LCA calculations using the tool ASCOT will be presented

LCC calculations in the NZEB-renovation of apartment blocks

This webinar was organized by CENERGIA part of KUBEN MANAGEMENT as a part of MORE-CONNECT training course. The presented concept of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) calculations covers such issues as how Net Present Value (NPV) and IR is calculated. Further the webinar shows the use of the tool ASCOT, which has been developed by the Danish MORE-CONNECT participant – CENERGIA for simultaneous saved energy & LCC calculations. The impact of cost reduction implementing some of the MORE-CONNECT prefab technologies presented as well and the results compared to the simple payback method. The ASCOT tool were also used for the concept development calculations in WP6 of MORE-CONNECT and the results of these actual calculations for a Danish reference building are presented.
