Individual Building (Renovation) Roadmaps

iBRoad intended to explore, design, develop and demonstrate the concept of individual building renovation roadmaps (iBRoad), as a tool outlining deep step-by-step renovation plans with customised recommendations for individual buildings (iBRoad-Plan), combined with a repository of building-related information (logbook, iBRoad- Log). The iBRoad approach is an evolution of EPC and energy audit systems, aiming to become a real driver for renovation. The project analysed and built upon relevant examples in Germany, France, and Flanders, to identify the elements, develop an integrated concept, and produce modular tools, suitable for differing national conditions. The iBRoad innovative concept and tools were tested in Bulgaria, Poland, Portugal, and Germany. Field testing followed auditor training and provided auditor and user experience feedback as input to the feasibility and replicability analysis of the model to other building typologies and EU MS. Stakeholder engagement was sought from the start at national (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Poland, Portugal, and Sweden) and EU levels, for maximum impact. Throughout the project, communication activities will ensure the concept’s broad dissemination and awareness.  iBRoad targeted residential buildings, with a focus on single-family and small multifamily houses.

iBRoad’s implementation, beyond the project duration, will strongly support building owners in step-by-step deep renovation, while avoiding lock-in effects. iBRoad-Plan and iBRoad-Log are expected to empower energy auditors and end-users with knowledge and experience of deep renovation in individual buildings, and to provide public authorities with real-life studies and analysis supporting deep renovation, both for individual buildings and as a long-term national strategy, increasing the renovation rate and depth across the EU.

The role of INZEB

INZEB contributed to all technical Work Packages (WP) of the iBRoad project. In addition, INZEB was the leader of WP 6 Stakeholders engagement from design to delivery. The overall objective of WP6 was to identify, connect and engage stakeholders as well as to exploit the broad amount of information and knowledge that stakeholders hold, both on national and European level. This was considered while developing a broad consensus on planned initiatives in order to achieve the overall objective of the project, to increase the renovations rates and depth, while at the same time it ensured that owners’ uncertainty in relation to the decision of energy retrofits will be minimised.
Specifically, INZEB conducted the stakeholder mapping and identified the national and EU stakeholders, developed the engagement strategy plan, established, and maintained the stakeholders’ consultation process, including the organisation of the 16 national roundtables in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Romania, Poland, and Portugal. Find out what stakeholders discussed at the public report here.
Moreover, INZEB was responsible to maintain the project e-Forum. You may view the results of the iBRoad Stakeholders Forum here.
Within the frame of the iBRoad Stakeholders Open Dialogue Journey and following the consultation workshops with national stakeholders in the eight participating countries, a series of five virtual events was designed and delivered by INZEB during the period February 2020 – June 2020, with the aim to maintain the relations with various stakeholders and interested parties. You may find the final report here.
As part of the communication activities, INZEB organised and participated in various events promoting the concept of Building Renovation Passports, including the organisation of a meeting with the officials of the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy. The list of events is available here.
