One of the existing tools that could help creating smart cities is the Energy Performance Certification (EPC) of residential buildings, by introducing energy efficiency as a comparative criterion for real-estate purchase choices, influencing real-estate market value, stimulating energy saving investments, moving the housing market towards greater energy efficiency and creating comprehensive databases which are fundamental for shaping smart strategies on urban, regional and national levels. The impact on potential buyers or tenants is crucial in order to reach these goals but EPC’s results, in their actual form, do not help raise people awareness: often distant from reality, overestimating consumption, they usually result is a general misunderstanding and misuse of the document. This study aims at verifying that the actual calculation method used in certification could approach real building consumption, by using additional data on occupant behaviour and household characteristics. It first presents the concepts behind smart cities, then an overview of the uncertainties that weight on the Belgian certification calculation method parameters. It also presents variations that could be applied to the EPC calculation method in order to add behavioural parameters… inspired from case studies of buildings. [less ▲]

This paper first describes the energy balance of Wallonia, its evolution, the share of renewable energy and the targets related to energy policy. The second part of this paper focuses on a study led on a small land in Villers-le-Bouillet. The goal here was to prove that smart incentives are needed in order to introduce on the market smart environment-friendly building solutions. [less ▲]

For more than a decade, the Walloon government develops plans of economic redeployment; among them, the “Marshall Plan” financed (from 2009 to 2013) the “Reno2020” project, which general objective was to demonstrate that the existing Walloon residential stock provides a vast potential for improvement, especially as far as energy and environmental performance is concerned. Furthermore, this project involved different actors of the construction sector social microcosm: - The client, private or public owner of dwellings to be renovated. - The architect, author of the renovation project. - The contractors, transferring projected renovation into reality. - The material producers, developing ad hoc solutions to particular problems. - The scientific committee, composed of the Belgian Building Research Institute (BBRI, Sustainable Renovation Department), the Technical Control Bureau for Construction (SECO) and University of Liege, Energy and Sustainable Development (EnergySuD) research unit.

The goal of this research is to qualify (and quantify) the Walloon residential building stock, in order to identify majority typologies which can be considered as representative of the Walloon dwelling stock. This would therefore help us find potential improvement room, strategies of action when it comes to sustainable and large scale renovation of the described typologies. [less ▲]

In Belgium, like in many European countries, the existing buildings represent the main part of the building stock. These buildings are relatively old, and most of the dwellings are not at all or not well thermally insulated; their airtightness is weak and their heating installations are old. We can find there real potential improvement and high possibilities of renovation. The owner, the contractor and the architect are confronted with many renovation options, and choosing the best intervention scenarios is never easy. It’s in this context that the software REFLEX (for Rénovation EFficace d’un Logement EXistant, in English: efficient renovation of an existing dwelling) has been developed. [less ▲]

Le présent document constitue un outil d'aide à la décision à destination des concepteurs pour la réalisation de logements techniquement performants, conformes à la réglementation PEB. Sur base de la méthode de calcul PEB, il permet, dans une première approche globale, de cibler rapidement les indicateurs-clés que sont le niveau Ew et la consommation Espec, et ce, pour quatre types de logements précis.

Cette étude a pour objectif d'analyser le parc résidentiel wallon dans ses caractéristiques urbanistiques, typologiques, techniques et thermiques, afin de choisir quels bâtiments feront l'objet d'une rénovation durable dans le cadre du projet Réno2020. cataloguer le bâti wallon permet ainsi d'identifier les catégories de logements prioritaires et de typologies majoritaires, largement représentatives de l'ensemble des logements wallons améliorables, de dégager des potentiels d'amélioration et des priorités d'action en termes de rénovation énergétique et durable du parc de logements wallons.
