PERFORMER results will be validated on four demonstration buildings in France, United Kingdom, Spain and Poland. These demonstrators will be used to assess energy and environmental benefits of the new methodology and also to validate the framework and technologies for the concept to be easily replicable throughout countries with different climate condition variations across Europe.
- St Teilo’s Church in Wales Secondary School (Cardiff, UK): The pilot is a new build faith secondary (11-18) school which endeavours to exceed existing sustainable design principals and has renewable supplies as part of design. As the building is new, gaps between design performance and actual performance has yet to be measured.
- Hotel de Las Letras (Madrid, Spain): The aim of the project is to improve energy management through a system which will enable to detect latent and abnormal consumption of electricity, gas and water.
- Baltic Plaza Hotel (Kolobrzeg, Poland): The pilot meets all building regulations regarding energy use reduction. All devices working in the hotel are armed in elements getting back energy already used. Approximately 30 % of light source holders are LEDs. Electricity uses represent 75 % of all energy use in the building. The challenge in the building is further reduction of energy uses, especially electricity.
- WOOPA office building (Lyon area, France): Woopa is a positive energy and zero carbon building, designed throughout 3 different pillars: 1. Use of bioclimatic technology: thermal and visual comfort, strengthened insulation, glass areas optimisation. 2. Use of efficient and high energy performance systems: active slab. 3. Use of renewable energy : local production of electricity, cogeneration, PVs. The project aim to evaluate the magnitude of electricity use in office buildings,
