Residential Retrofit assessment platform and demonstrations for near zero energy and CO2 emissions with optimum cost, health, comfort and environmental quality

RECO2ST will enable the formulation of customized and efficient renovation action plans and the implementation of cost effective technological solutions to improve the energy efficiency of residential buildings to nZEB levels. This will be made possible by reductions of 71–91% in energy consumption.  The project aims to optimize environmental conditions, improve the lives of inhabitants and increase building value for owners.

Quantis will harness its expertise in environmental Life Cycle Assessment to evaluate the environmental impact of the reference refurbishment work database. Quantis will also provide validation for the developed LCA module and the calculation of the environmental impacts of the selected refurbishment scenarios.
