Take a virtual tour to our four EXCESS positive energy building demo sites across Europe

Visit the four EXCESS PEB construction sites virtually

Despite COVID-related challenges, work at all EXCESS demo sites was able to continue in 2020. EXCESS partners are now starting into 2021 with a thorough update on all four positive energy building (PEB) construction sites. Explore the new demo site webpages featuring additional details, as well as exclusive footage taking viewers on a tour to construction sites in Hasselt (Belgium), Graz (Austria), Granada (Spain) and Helsinki (Finland).

In a series of videos local EXCESS partners outline construction plans and development, introduce the innovative solutions and technologies deployed, as well as their vision for future homes and the benefits of positive energy buildings for their inhabitants.

In the Belgian city of Hasselt, a social housing apartment complex is being retrofitted as part of the project enabling surplus energy production via rooftop wind turbines, PVT systems and heat pump installations. Watch here.

In Helsinki (Finland) a new residential building meeting positive energy standards is being constructed with support of the city in Helsinki’s smart district Kalasatama. The building will amongst others be equipped with DualSun PVT panels for multisource ground source heat pumps for 800m deep boreholes. Watch here.

In Granada (Spain), a new apartment complex with shopping and economic spaces will be set up to produce, store and share energy within Spain’s first planned zero energy district. Energy from geothermal heat pumps and PV panels will also be used in an electric vehicle charging station on the spot. Watch here.

In the Austrian city of Graz a building complex in a former industrial area is being renovated to meet positive energy standards with a cascadic heat pump portfolio, a multifunctional façade and smart control systems checking demand and comfort. Watch here.
