StepUP partners from ABUD have hosted the project’s General Assembly on March 21-22 in Budapest, Hungary.

Representatives from each partner entity have joined the meeting to review the project tasks and actions done during the last 6 months of the project execution and discuss the next steps and activities for the development of a new deep energy renovation processes and methodologies to improve the energy performance and renovation of buildings.

The meeting also included a dissemination workshop to discuss about the upcoming dissemination activities, and an interactive working session to jointly define the value proposition of five key StepUP exploitation results.

During the second day of the meeting, StepUP partners have visited the Zöld Liget Kindergarten facilities located in the 18th District of Budapest, one of the pilots of the project where the performance of the Plug & Play façade envelope is being demonstrated. The StepUP Plug&Play Envelope System consists of a pre-assembled enveloped panel integrating windows and provisions for the technical systems for the active system, as well as complementary features for the passive system.

Additionally, partners could learn about HeatVentors solution, a thermal energy storage system balancing the efficiency of the cooling/healing system.
