NewBEE Technology Wiki

Fraunhofer IAO participated in a contest and won the “wiki of the month” award in April 2015.

The NewBEE Technology Wiki provides access to information on refurbishment to building owners and professionals. It has been developed in the context of the research project NewBEE - Novel Business model generator for Energy Efficiency in construction and retrofitting. The NewBEE wiki provides content that aims to support the main goal of the NewBEE project: “strengthen collaboration in the retrofitting value network”.

The focus in this context is to support three specific situations that typically occur in a construction project or in strategic planning: support for management staff who strive to improve the business model of their company, support for owners looking for independent information on refurbishment, and finally use of the wiki during the planning stage of a refurbishment project. Project managers can explain basic aspects of a retrofitting project to their clients by means of the information available in the NewBEE Technology Wiki.

The main types of information provided in the NewBEE Technology Wiki are:

·         Building typology

·         Available technologies for energy refurbishment

·         Financial models and opportunities

·         Performance based business models

·         Methods and standards for energy and cost saving calculation

·         Potential savings
