Retabit is a Research, Development and Innovation project co-funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and carried out by the research group ARC Engineering and Architecture La Salle (coordinator) and IREC, the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research

Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs) are a key instrument for the reduction of energy consumption in buildings and for the sustainable development of cities. Although these plans - and the SEAPs that preceded them - have been adopted by a large number of local administrations, there are some fundamental difficulties that hinder their effectiveness, including the lack of data from the multiple sectors (building, energy, economy, financing) involved in the renovation of buildings, and the lack of information systems that interrelate these data to assess the impact of the actions taken over long periods of time.

To help overcome these difficulties, RETABIT will develop a service platform that will provide the multiple actors involved in large-scale residential building renovation with the tools they need to assess the state of the building stock in an urban area and its renovation potential, to develop possible retrofitting scenarios based on multidimensional indicators, and to monitor the impact of their implementation over time.
