ZEN Lunsjforedrag: Veien til nullutslippsgård som ZEN-pilot; erfaringer og utfordringer v/ Tove H. Jystad og Torger Mjønes

oversiktsbilde over en gård med drivhus, grønne jorder og fjord i bakgrunnen.Mære Lansbruksskole ble i 2019 en pilot i FME ZEN. Målet er å redusere klimautslippene i forbindelse med driften av gårdsanlegget ned mot null vha. flere tiltak.  I dette lunsjforedraget vil Tove Hatling Jystad, leder Grønt kompetansesenter og Torger Mjønes, gruppeleder bærekraftige bygg, Trøndelag Fylkeskommune,  oppsummere erfaringer og utfordringer fra forskningspartnerskapet gjennom fem år.

Event: Speeding up the implementation of Net Zero Emission Buildings and Neighbourhoods through targeted financial policies

We are happy to invite you to our EU Sustainable Energy Day Event: Speeding up the implementation of Net Zero Emission Buildings and Neighbourhoods through targeted financial policies.  

This is a half day workshop held at NTNUs Brussels office and we have a great panel to talk about lessons learnt moderated by Gerrit Sindermann from Green Digital Finance Alliance. On-line participation possible for first part 12:45-14:20

The revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is ambitious, and many countries around Europe are lagging behind in the implementation. However, several innovative demonstration projects have been realised around Europe as part of research and innovation projects around Europe. The demonstration projects serve as lighthouses to
guide the wider implementation to net zero emission buildings and neighbourhoods.

Lack of finance is considered to be one of the key barriers to improving buildings’ energy efficiency at a speed and scale that is required. Beyond the financing gap, the built environment is a complex network of stakeholders, financial barriers, and mixed incentives, which all need to align and be overcome to speed up the decarbonisation of EU’s housing stock.

In this session we will hear the experiences from innovative demonstration projects of net zero emission and plus energy neighbourhoods around Europe, as well as the viewpoints of key stakeholders along the value chain. Moreover, we will discuss policy measures needed to finance and scale up such projects around Europe. The main outcome will be a list
of policy recommendations for private and public decision-makers.

ZEN Lunch Lecture: Energy flexibility test in two schools

Welcome to ZEN Lunch Lecture.

In this lunch lecture Johannes Brozovsky and John Clauss will share knowledge from tests done at two school buildings in Norway: Ydalir, Elverum and Huseby, Trondheim.

This work compares two schedule-based control strategies for load shifting of space-heating loads in two real school buildings in Norway. Both buildings have waterborne heat distribution systems and are connected to district heating. The loads can be shifted by deploying the building energy flexibility. One control strategy increases all room temperature setpoints simultaneously, whereas for the other control strategy room temperature setpoints are increased in a coordinated manner to avoid high peak power demands. Both schedule-based control strategies focus on pre-heating of the buildings in the morning and show to be effective in moving heating loads from peak periods (7 a.m.–9 a.m.) to off-peak periods. The control strategy with a coordinated setpoint increase proves to be effective in avoiding high peak load demand, whereas a high peak demand increase is shown for a simultaneous setpoint increase. Furthermore, practical challenges during the implementation of the control strategies into the existing building management systems are presented, pointing out that an energy-flexible building operation should ideally be considered during the building`s tendering and design phase.

The lecture will i) present results of the tests on load shifting and ii) discuss practical challenges that need to be overcome to deploy the building energy flexibility in real buildings.
