Breakout session 1
Replication considerations for the full scale deployment throughout Europe of the REnnovates concept.
In Europe, differences in climate conditions, building typology, energy regulations, home ownership, citizen association or financial mechanisms, lead to varied housing scenarios where single rigid solutions are difficult to implement. The objective is to present the audience the challenges faced for the industrialization and full-scale deployment of the REnnovates concept and some possible approaches to overcome these differences.

Breakout session 2
Financing of deep 'REnnovates' retrofit of residential buildings: a banker's perspective.
How does a banker look at the financing of deep retrofit of residential buildings? Is there a bankable business case? Are the 'energy savings' and other values enough to justify the finance investment? Under which conditions could this be a profitable investment for third party investors?
We explain how our 'REnnovates' business modelling tool describes the necessary conditions to come to a bankable investment pilot. Joost Declerck | Energy Efficiency Promotor | Belfius Bank
Breakout session 3
How Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving the smart home and preventing the grid from congestion.
How does smart control really works and what values does it bring? How can energy efficiency and residential comfort go hand in hand? How is this visualized to the different stakeholders. What's the role of the Smart Home in Smart Grids and how do they interoperate? How are operations and service quality guaranteed? Stefan Lodeweyckx | CEO | Enervalis
Breakout session 4
Smart Neighborhoods speak EEBUS.
The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate how EEBUS enables an industrial approach for residential energy management by providing standardized device communication and energy management use cases. Hence, a lock-in into proprietary manufacturer specific communication can be avoided. This enables cost effective scalability, replication, and commissioning of energy management solutions at target markets.
EEBUS provides transparency and access to all energy relevant devices and thus transforms them into flexible resources for demand response. Single households become the core elements of Smart Neighborhoods and consequently of Smart Grids. The continuously evolving technology is open to further use cases and therefore facilitates the integration of other domains to the REnnovates technical platform – such as E-Mobility which is already managed through EEBUS or grid interaction.

Breakout session 5
Shaping the future of REnnovates 2.0.
An open interactive workshop whereby participants are given the opportunity to exchange their new innovative ideas, inspired by the REnnovates project. The workshop paves the way towards follow up project concept i.e. REnnovates 2.0. This workshop offers you constructive feedback and a practical hands-on approach on how best to fund the ideas and find potential new partners. Kelly Aylward | Chief Operating Officer | Mint
Breakout session 6
The value of creating a flexible ecosystem.
Creating a flexible energy ecosystem is the challenge for the whole energy market. Flexibility in energy demand and energy supply is a vital aspect for a successful energy transition. Especially because peaks in demand and supply are likely to grow substantially (electric transport, solar rooftops) in the near future.
We all embrace a renewable energy future. Solar and wind energy are replacing fossil fuels. The REnnovates concept is designed to meet supply and demand at any time during every season.
From a grid perspective, especially solar energy peaks in summer are difficult to control. Learn more about the necessity of energy flexibility and how we found ways to shave energy (generating) peaks in order to optimize our grid capacity. A challenge which has value.

Breakout session 7
Bottom-up design of a smart neighborhood: an energy simulation approach.
In this workshop the results of the building energy simulations will be shown, as well as the results of the validation track. From a designer's point of view, it is very valuable to immediately assess the impact of certain renovation design choices on user comfort and energy demand. The total electrification of the energy supply in a neighborhood is also of great concern for the local distribution grid operator. Additionally, this work also has a strong connection with evaluation of the business models. The developed tools will be showcased in this workshop. Jan Diriken | Researcher | VITO / EnergyVille
Breakout session 8
User interaction as a crucial factor in sustainable and smart neighborhoods.
How to involve tenants participating in sustainable neighborhoods while creating a smart neighborhood with user interaction. Important themes include: customer journey, user feedback and user dashboards. Tom Jongen | Director Renovation Concepts | BAM Wonen
