  • Project status: ongoing
  • Funding:
    Societal Challenge (Horizon 2020 /EU funding /Project)

The vision of the ARV project is to contribute to speedy wide scale implementation of Climate Positive Circular Communities (CPCCs) where people can thrive and prosper for generations to come.

The overall aim is to demonstrate and validate attractive, resilient, and affordable solutions for CPCCs that will significantly speed up the deep energy renovations and the deployment of energy and climate measures in the construction and energy industries.

To achieve this, the ARV project will employ a novel concept relying on a combination of 3 conceptual pillars, 6 demonstration projects, and 9 thematic focus areas.

The 3 conceptual pillars are integration, circularity and simplicity. Integration in ARV means the coupling of people, buildings, and energy systems, through multi-stakeholder co-creation and use of innovative digital tools. Circularity in ARV means a systematic way of addressing circular economy through automated use of LCA, digital logbooks and material banks. Simplicity in ARV means to make the solutions easy to understand and use for all stakeholders, from manufacturers to end-users.

The 6 demos are urban regeneration projects in 6 locations around Europe. They have been carefully selected to represent the different European climates and contexts, and due to their high ambitions in environmental, social and economic sustainability. Renovation of social housing and public buildings are specifically focused. Together, they will demonstrate more than 50 innovations in more than 150,00 m2 of buildings.
