Banca Monte Paschi Belgio is partner of the European project ABRACADABRA. Abracadabra studies the possibility of increasing the real estate value of the existing buildings through a significant energy and architectural transformations.
The main goals consist of an important reduction of the payback time of the interventions, increasing quality and attractiveness of the existing buildings’ stock and, reaching a concrete market acceleration towards the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings target.
In this context we have the pleasure to inform you about the two days workshop 8th and 9th of Februray.
Workshop language: English.
ABRACADABRA is based on the prior assumption that non-energy-related benefits play a key role in the deep renovation of existing buildings. In particular, ABRA actions focus on the creation of a substantial increase of the real estate value of the existing buildings through a significant energy and architectural transformation. The central goals of the proposal consist of an important reduction of the pay back time of the interventions, a strengthening of the key investors’ confidence, increasing quality and attractiveness of the existing buildings’ stock and, finally, reaching a concrete market acceleration towards the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings target.
You are cordially invited to participate in the International Workshop & Capacity Building Event on the topic: “Choosing AdoREs to Finance Energy Efficiency: Making the Business Case for Property Owners” on 8 -9 February 2018 – Brussels, Belgium
Registration are open and here available
DAY 1 – International Workshop (9:00-17:30)
This event aims at identifying solutions to overcome potential constraints and hurdles of private property owners to engaging in energy efficiency retrofitting of their buildings by exploring the potential advantages of AdoREs. “AdoREs” is an acronym that stands for “Assistant buildings’ addition and Renewable Energy Sources” (AdoREs). It refers to a set of assistant building units – such as additions to the side, the top or façade or even entire new building constructions – potentially integrated with renewable energy sources.
During this event, the assumption that non-energy related benefits can play a key role in the deep renovation of existing buildings will be tested. We will identify if, when, where and how a building addition or expansion can:
- increase the real estate value of buildings through energy and architectural transformation,
- generate additional rental income, or bring additional cash flow as a result of property sale.
- It will be explored how property owners’ decisions for such options can be facilitated and accompanied.
DAY 2 – Capacity Building Event (8:30-12:00)
The Capacity Building event aims at demonstrating energy efficiency retrofitting using volume extension and renewables on real case studies, using a set of toolkits (technical, financial and regulatory). This will allow you to build up your knowledge and explore potential financing options that can deliver deep building retrofits!
You have the chance to either bring your own project idea as a case study with you, in this case please contact us beforehand, or observe the other case studies.
Please find the agenda of the event attached
We hope to see you at the International Workshop and the Capacity Buildings session!
