CCEM project UMEM

The developed urban energy simulation framework will help collectivities, urban planners and stakeholders to evaluate the environmental impact of cities in a changing climate and to provide a basis for testing new urban energy retrofit scenarios.
The strategic goals of the UMEM project are:
-The development of an integrated multiscale modelling approach interfacing three domains: the urban microclimate, the building energy systems and the domain of human flows;
-The development and evaluation of urban energy retrofit scenarios for cities on city quarter scale including different mitigation measures for urban heat islands and climatic change.

CCEM project IDEAS4cities

In the project simulation models of urban energy hubs and urban microgrids for a cluster of buildings or city quarters will be developed and coupled to city energy models, which simulate the energy demand, generation, storage and management of the buildings in the city.
The goal is to study different cases of implementation such as the development plan of a city quarter, a city centre with historic buildings, or rural communities where an integrated energy-adaptive system could be successfully and profitably implemented.

IEA SHC Task 50

Advanced Lighting Solutions for Retrofitting Buildings

Research and developments in the field of energy efficient lighting techniques encompassing daylighting, electric lighting and lighting controls combined with activities employing and bringing these techniques to the market can contribute significantly to reduce worldwide electricity consumptions and CO2 emissions. These activities will therefore be in line with several different governmental energy efficiency and sustainability targets.


The SCCER Future Energy Efficient Buildings & Districts (FEEB&D) develops new materials, components, systems and concepts which will enable the reduction of the energy demand of the Swiss building stock by a factor of five during the next decades. FEEB&D is focusing on high performance insulation materials, integra- tion of renewable energies in buildings, efficient operation of buildings and their integration into local multi- energy grids. To complete the holistic approach, socio-economic issues related to the implementation of these new concepts in practice are addressed as well. To reach these ambitious goals, the major players from academia and industry have teamed up in FEEB&D. This coordinated effort will support the new Federal Energy Policy, strengthen the Swiss research scene and foster the competitiveness of Swiss industry.
