Online Event for Suppliers, Manufacturers, Construction and Engineering Companies, Architects, Designers and other Industry Experts.
Speakers across various sectors will come together to share their knowledge and explore the aspects of sustainable energy solutions, building techniques, low carbon construction materials, sustainable manufacturing and supply chain.
In the Irish context, 3 Counties Energy Agency have teamed up with Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford County Councils who have committed to deliver 12 Zero Energy Homes in the South East region by 2021. The focus will be on delivering a sustainable and affordable housing model which can be replicated for future use across all Local Authorities in Ireland. The project will introduce a shift in the form of modern and innovative construction techniques, technologies, materials and processes used for building new homes.
The aim of this Workshop is to introduce the Housing 4.0 Energy Irish pilot and the Digital Platform that is currently being developed for suppliers, manufacturers, architects, developers, designers of modular build houses and for other industry experts to use. A group discussion will be held on how the project can be enhanced to achieve long-term sustainability and engagement within the industry. The intention is to create knowledge sharing networks between industry experts and allow better understanding of the project goals, understand and explain how the Digital Platform can work for you and what improvements can be made to improve the system and supply chain.
One of the main outcomes of the project is a Digital Platform that will help future builders and industry experts to optimise house designs used in these pilots. The platform will allow parametric models of the pilot technologies to be created, so that the cost of subsequently replicating each design can be radically reduced. This platform will also be able to take datasets and link these to the parametric models to support future optimisation and ultimately reduce building costs by 25% and CO² emissions by 60%. Additionally, an operational and embodied energy/CO² calculation tool will be integrated into the digital platform to help identify how much energy is being used by a given design tested within the project.
Alex Hamilton and Ralf Kampe of 3 Counties Energy Agency will host the Workshop on the 8th of July 2020. The Workshop will begin at 9:30am and will involve 6 supplier presentations with a virtual round table discussion to conclude.
Date & Time: Wednesday, 8th July 2020 from 9:30am-11:00am (Irish Summer Time)
