The “EcoShopping” project aims to produce a practical holistic retrofitting solution for commercial buildings, reduce primary energy consumption to less than 80 kWh/(m2.year) and increase the proportion of Renewable Energy Systems (RES) to more than 50% by using state of the art solutions. The project intends to use and integrate available products and technologies; along with a network to accurately monitor the environmental and occupancy parameters to allow the Building Management System to have better control of the building and fully exploit the thermal mass.
This paper:

  • Introduces the EcoShopping project and the consortium carrying out the work.
  • Describes the case study building and the initial targets for carbon reduction.
  • Discusses the results of Work Package 2: which is an assessment of national building codes, Energy Performance Buildings Directive (EPBD) implementation, performance standards and good practice.
