REVOLVE HEART project logo

Advancing a multi-functional retrofit toolkit with different subcomponents and technologies operating synergistically to transform existing buildings into extremely high levels of energy efficiency ‘smart buildings’ with a focus on Central and Southern Europe.

As Europe struggles with the changing climate boosting electricity consumption peaks during both summer and winter, building renovation technologies are becoming essential. However, renovation technologies are often expensive, disintegrated, and their installation time is inefficient.

The time for us to act smart so we can live smart is now. The HEART innovation will help lead us towards the future of sustainable building renovation and drive the transition towards smart cities.

* Due to delays caused by COVID-19, HEART was extended by 6 months to the end of March 2022.

The HEART project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement N°768921
