Breathing New Life into Local Communities with NZEBs

At Renel Energy & Power Engineering, we believe in harnessing the power of innovation to create a more sustainable future. One key area where this focus is making a significant impact is through the transformation of existing buildings into Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs).

NZEBs: Rejuvenating Historical Structures and Communities

NZEBs are buildings designed to minimize energy consumption through a combination of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy sources. This not only reduces a building’s environmental footprint, but also breathes new life into historical structures and strengthens the foundation of local communities.

Renel’s Commitment to NZEBs: Real-World Examples

Renel is proud to be at the forefront of the NZEB movement in Greece, being also a member of the IsZEB Cluster. We’ve undertaken numerous projects that demonstrate the transformative power of NZEBs:

Another interesting aspect of our efforts to innovate in this specific sector can be traced also by our participation with our R&D Dpt. at the REHOUSE EU Project which is co-funded by the European Commission‘s Research and Innovation Programme Horizon Europe.

Beyond Energy Savings: The Positive Impact on Local Societies

By transforming buildings into NZEBs, Renel contributes to a range of benefits for local communities:

  • Reduced energy costs: Municipalities and businesses can save significant resources, allowing them to invest in other areas of community development.
  • Enhanced building comfort: Improved thermal insulation and ventilation ensure a more comfortable and healthy environment for occupants.
  • Preservation of historical heritage: NZEB retrofits can be done sympathetically, preserving the architectural character of historical buildings.
  • Increased property value: Energy-efficient buildings are more attractive to tenants and buyers, boosting the local property market.
  • Job creation: NZEB projects create opportunities for skilled workers in insulation, renewable energy installation, and building management systems.
  • Promoting sustainability awareness: NZEBs serve as tangible examples of how communities can reduce their environmental impact.

Join Us in Building a Sustainable Future

Renel is committed to partnering with communities across Greece to unlock the potential of NZEBs. Together, we can create a future where historical buildings are preserved for generations to come, while local communities thrive in a more sustainable environment.
