ENSNARE Project: Envelope mesh and digital framework for building renovation
The main goal of the ENSNARE project is to boost the implementation of NZEB renovation packages in Europe, with a focus on residential buildings. To accomplish this objective, the project develops two main technologies: Building components and digital solutions. The deployment of these two is founded in two key structures developed within ENSNARE:
- Envelope mesh, fully modular and based on industrialized principles, enables fast assembly and interconnection of all components and energy/data networks, including technologies for energy harvesting, storage and distribution;
- Digital platform provides a framework to stakeholders with a clear structure and access to a wide range of technologies for deep renovation of buildings. It supports all stages of the renovation, from early decision making and data acquisition to the manufacturing, construction, and the operation and maintenance of the implemented system. The platform makes use of a digital toolbox (i.e., modular tools) closely linked to a digital model of the buildings, which in its final stage become a Digital Twin allowing real-time control, simulation and operation of all building components.
