Innovative energy retrofitting in historic public buildings: start of the BEEP project
On October 15 and 16, the kick-off meeting of the BEEP project took place in Rome. BEEP project (BIM for Energy Efficiency in the Public sector) aims at strengthening the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to enhance energy efficiency in buildings. The testing of this emerging technology on built heritage will be performed to demonstrate its scalability to the entire building stock. The project will provide public administrations with a powerful method for the energy rehabilitation of public buildings to be supported with private funds through Energy Performance Contracting.
The project main outcome will be an innovative methodology based on the integration of emerging technologies tested on heritage public buildings.
This project is led by the Institute for Cultural Heritage Sciences - ISPC (former ITABC of the National Research Council of Italy – CNR (Italy) in collaboration with seven more partners from six other countries: Royal Scientific Society RSS (Jordan), Minnucci Associati (Italy), Cyprus Institute CyI (Cyprus), Valencia Institute of Building IVE (Spain), Centre for Cultural Heritage Preservation CCHP (Palestine), Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation LCEC (Lebanon) and Egypt-Japan University of science and Technology E-JUST (Egypt).
The BEEP project, which has started in September 2019, has a duration of three years and counts with a total budget of € 1,934,184.51, of which € 1,740,766.06 (90%) is funded by the EU under the ENI CBC Med Programme.
