Who are We?

The overall aim of the EU-funded ARV project is to demonstrate and validate attractive, resilient, and affordable solutions that significantly speed-up deep energy renovations and deployment of energy and climate measures in the construction and energy industries. The project is working towards the implementation of climate-positive circular communities in Europe, focusing on net zero-emission buildings and neighbourhoods. ARV will provide guidelines and a policy framework for future energy-efficient, circular, and digital solutions in the construction industry.

Objectives

The vision of the ARV project is to contribute to speedy wide scale implementation of  where people can thrive and prosper for generations to come. To achieve this, the ARV project employs a novel concept relying on a combination of 3 conceptual pillars, 6 demonstration projects, and 9 thematic focus areas.

 

The Three Pillars

Circularity in ARV means a systematic way of addressing circular economy through automated use of LCA (Life Cycle Analyses), digital logbooks and material banks.

Simplicity in ARV means to make the solutions easy to understand and use for all stakeholders, from manufacturers to end-users.

Integration in ARV means the coupling of people, buildings, and energy systems, through multi-stakeholder co-creation and use of innovative digital tools.
