2nd iBRoad stakeholders’ meeting, Athens, Greece

Representatives of Triple-A participated in the 2nd iBRoad stakeholders’ meeting which took place on the 5th of December 2019, in Athens, Greece.

The iBRoad project's objective is to provide building owners with insighful information, e.g. which renovation measures and in which order to implement, so as to support them in choosing the best way to improve the energy performance of their building. In particular, iBRoad is developing the "Individual Building Renovation Roadmap for single-family houses" tool, which looks at the building as a whole and provides a customised renovation plan (iBRoad-Plan) over a long-term horizon (15-20 years). The renovation roadmap is, at its core, a home-improvement plan which considers the occupant’s needs and specific situation (e.g., age, financial situation, composition and expected evolution of the household, etc.) and avoids the risk of ‘lock-in’ future renovation solutions due to a lack of foresight.

With the pilot testing of the iBRoad tools completed, this meeting's aim was to enable stakeholders from Greece to discuss on its outcomes, as well as to review and exchange on experiences, further needs, opportunities and challenges of the iBRoad renovation roadmap and logbook. More than 20 stakeholders coming from various segments (e.g. policymakers, technical community, industry, finance institutions, academia, etc.) attended the meeting and participated in fruitful discussions.

Chara Karakosta (NTUA) participated in the meeting and explored potential synergies of Triple-A and iBRoad.
