The EU’s building stock is relatively old. Half of all homes in most EU countries were built pre-1970 and before the first thermal regulations. This is why upgrading the energy efficiency of the building envelope is important. With this EU-funded INFINITE project, we aim to pave the way toward providing a solution suitable for retrofit buildings.
Across three locations (Italy, Slovenia and France), 29mm SmartWindows will be installed with different appliances. That includes (1) the SmartWindow with blinds, (2) the SmartWindow with e-chromic glass, and (3) the SmartWindow with plasma chromic glass. The first window will be delivered on November 1st, 2022, and the total surface area of installed windows will amount to 267 m2.
From November 01, 2020, to March 3rd, 2023, the INFINITE project will receive a 340.000 euros contribution for production and installation. The coordination is done by EUREC. Project number: 958397
