We want to accelerate deep renovation processes by enhancing a consumer centered circular renovation process in order to make deep renovation environmentally friendly, cost effective and more attractive for consumers and investors.
The DRIVE 0 concept is based on developing circular deep renovation solutions and supporting consumer centered business models for 7 specific study and demonstration cases as real environments. The selected cases are already in preparation and each of these cases have a specific local driver for the need of a holistic and circular deep renovation, which is translated in ‘case specific challenges and tasks’ and case specific key performance indicators.
The building, Villa Cuccoli, is a traditional manor built for agricultural purposes in 1900’s made in stone-masonry. The villa, and the other two services buildings are surrounded by 1,2 ha of park. The abandoned agricultural building stock has a very strong potential, especially for social purposes (it will be used for disabled people after renovation).
In Estonia, more than 70% of the residents live in apartment buildings, constructed before 1990. The majority of those buildings have the same typical problems: high energy consumption levels, insufficient ventilation, uneven indoor temperatures, and insufficient thermal comfort levels.
There are roughly 524.000 residential buildings in Slovenia and vast majority – 89% represent single-family houses (464.352 units). Most houses were built in 1970’s (18%), followed by 80’s (15%), 60’s (11%) and even 19th century (11%). Only 5% were built after year 2000. The houses built during these periods in Slovenia are relatively large heated...
The Drive 0 consortium composed based on an approach and application in different areas (geo-clusters) in Europe, covering different climate zones. Moreover, extended experience from previous H2020 projects on deep renovation, learns that an approach is needed, suitable for specific national/regional circumstances in terms of climate, building technologies and traditions and cultural habits. As DRIVE 0 is structured around seven pilots in seven countries, for each country industrial partners or concept developers are ‘twinned’ with a technical partner (university, research institute or consultancy) to develop the specific holistic circular renovation products and concepts. For the market uptake and dissemination of the results, the DRIVE 0 consortium is effectively supported by three important European umbrella associations.
