Training School 2018, University of Belgrade, September 03-07, 2018
Retrofitting Facades for Energy Performance Improvement
Reductions in building energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions are two of the most important challenges facing the building industry. These must be addressed in a cost effective manner and without compromising occupant comfort and well-being. Building envelopes are of paramount importance and can play a key role in achieving the EU climate change and energy sustainability targets for 2020 whilst enhancing the wellbeing of citizens.
Highly adaptive facades offer unprecedented opportunities to reduce energy demand and improve indoor environmental quality and they are therefore crucial to the 2020 Net Zero Energy/Emission Building target and beyond. The workshop will develop concepts for one office building and one residential
building in the city-center of Belgrade.
The Training School aims at educating students in Adaptive Facade Systems by the leading international experts in the field. In addition, with this initiative wants to offer a privileged networking opportunity to master’s students and young researchers.
