Launch of the Renovation Hub: EU platform for energy-efficient refurbishment technologies and business models

The STUNNING Renovation Hub, a virtual platform for the interactive knowledge exchange in energy-efficient building renovation, was launched by the EU-funded, Horizon 2020 project STUNNING in September 2018. It enables stakeholders throughout the value chain to share knowledge and experiences with each other through articles on their innovative refurbishment packages, replicable business models and case studies on their successful implementation.

  • Articles on refurbishment packages offer a description of the technologies included, information on difficulties and barriers during its implementation, as well as lessons learned and cost-benefit analyses.
  • Articles on successful business models contain information on the most promising business model types, selected and optimized by the STUNNING project team.
  • Articles on practical case studies are meant to show best practices of how promising business models can be successfully implemented.

The Renovation Hub offers various benefits for stakeholders from the entire value chain for energy-efficient building refurbishment:

  • Technology providers from various industries, such as from construction, new materials, energy and smart homes are able to promote their renovation technologies and replicable business models across Europe.
  • Companies and research institutes get a platform to form new partnerships on technology development and implementation.
  • Building owners and municipalities can find or disseminate appropriate data on refurbishment packages, business models and best practices of their planned or performed refurbishment project.
  • Financial institutions can broaden their audience by promoting their financing models directly to interested parties with prospective plans of building refurbishment.
  • Architects and property developers gain a platform that bundles all relevant stakeholders in the refurbishment sector and can screen the market for potential projects.
