EXCESS ADVISORY BOARD MEETING - 8 & 9 February 2021

What is the EXCESS project?

EXCESS - FleXible user-CEntric Energy poSitive houseS – brings together 21 partners from 8 countries to showcase how nearly-zero energy buildings can be transformed into positive energy buildings. Funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme over a 4-year period, EXCESS will spearhead four innovative demonstration projects, introducing technical solutions that enable buildings to produce more renewable energy than they consume over the course of a year. By implementing demonstration projects that span across the Nordic, Continental, Oceanic and Mediterranean climate zones, EXCESS seeks to test, validate and share PEB solutions with potential replicability across Europe.

What is the advisory board?

During the EXCESS project we will have 3 advisory board meetings. These meetings are meant as a platform for the project to interact with key stakeholders in the field of positive energy buildings. Before each meeting, a survey is conducted within the project to identify key cross-cutting issues to be addressed during the advisory board meetings. Participating stakeholders will be invited to provide inputs on these issues and will also have the opportunities to learn more about the latest developments in the project and the state of the art in the field of PEBs in Europe. 

The 1st Advisory Board Meeting

There will be 5 sessions during this advisory board meeting, participants are invited to attend as many sessions as they like. We would invite all participants to attend the introduction session that will take place at the start of Day 1.  Below you can find an overview of the different sessions with a short description.
