AEGIR Project

The AEGIR project consists of the development of systems for the incremental digital and physical renovation of buildings to improve their environmental and energy performance and resource use.


AEGIR, “Efficient, sustainable and inclusive energy use”, aims to implement a sustainable digital framework, which drives deep retrofitting by achieving near-zero energy buildings supported by innovative, industrialised, high-performance, non-intrusive, multi-functional plug-and-play multi-functional building envelope solutions to increase the local use of renewable technologies.

AEGIR’s strategy is based on addressing economic challenges through industrialisation and digitisation of the entire reform process leading to a drastic reduction of time and cost, prioritising the involvement of local suppliers and resource partners, addressing social challenges through a BIM, with various modular and industrialised solutions, renewable components and energy management to improve the way energy is used with various outcomes such as:

  • Physical solution: Consists of a plug-and-play enclosure that reduces installation time and intrusion, with active and passive functionalities, providing fresh air to ensure indoor environmental quality.
  • Renewable energy: For energy buildings is based on an approach in which energy design enables business models such as ESCOs to keep their residential buildings more comfortable and healthier.
  • An ecosystem of easy-to-use digital tools and services for the construction value chain, encompassing the digitisation of the construction sector and society.

IDP will also participate in this project by playing a role in co-defining the research and market needs with the development of its technology by making prototypes and demonstrations to test the project approach.

AEGIR is funded by the EU under the call: “HORIZON-CL5-2021-D4-02-02”.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement Nº 101079961 – Aegir
