Massive Decarbonisation of the Swiss Building Stock (RENOWAVE)

At a glance


Buildings are a major source of Swiss CO2 emission, and the existing stock will represent the overwhelming part of the sectorial energy demand for yet several decades to come. Challenges to massive and efficient retrofit are numerous, multifaceted, interrelated and transdisciplinary, from scientific as well as operational points of view.

The RENOWAVE project addresses building retrofit in a process of co-construction between researchers from various fields and implementation partners representing the various stakeholders which are involved in the complex process chain of renovation. P&D projects will allow to test, challenge and validate innovative solutions, for promotion to a broad audience. Such systemic innovation will play a major role in boosting the retrofit, both in terms of quantity (renovation rate) and quality (performance), so as to meet the goals of Switzerland's Long-Term Climate Strategy.
