Safe and sustainable living environment

SBE2022 Delft Conference

SBE22Delft will bring together 250-300 researchers, government officials, companies and professionals working towards a fast energy transition in the building renovation sector. The program of this conference will cover a wide range of themes regarding the built environment.

Accelerating Europe's energy renovation wave

The conference will enable participants to share ideas on state-of-the-art approaches for accelerating Europe’s energy renovation wave. The program includes keynote sessions, scientific paper presentations, industry and policy roundtables, panel discussions connected to current European policies and goals, and site visits of living labs.

TNO will feature during this conference with multiple paper and poster contributions on topics like renovation concepts, energy performance of buildings, and innovative approaches to heating, cooling and ventilation. During the conference TNO will hold three workshops regarding:
BIM workflows and tools to support the energy-efficient renovation of the EU residential building stock, 

  • BIM workflows and tools to support the energy-efficient renovation of the EU residential building stock,
  • Steering the market to focus on actual energy performance in home energy renovations,
  • Innovation program: Integrated approach energy transition in the built environment (IEBB).

The workshop on BIM workflows and tools to support energy-efficient renovation will present results from two European projects, BIM4REN and BIM-SPEED and will be chaired by Francesco Cinquini. In particular, the workshop focuses on the adaptations of the methods and tools to the actual needs and levels of expertise of practitioners for making the most out of BIM; both as a data exchange format as well as a collaborative process on a semantically enriched building information models. 
Marleen Spiekman will host the second workshop on steering the market to focus on energy performance. Current systems are developed with theoretical performances. In practice, actual performance differs greatly from these theoretical frameworks.

The third workshop will present results and insights gained during the IEBB program. During the workshop participants will be asked for input regarding international collaboration with private partners, how to organize the fragmented building industry and how to increase pace and reduce costs. This workshop is chaired by Charlotte Lelieveld.
