a 20240403 163707

The SMARTeeSTORY project consortium recently convened for its second project meeting in the picturesque city of Granada, Spain, marking a significant milestone as the project approaches its one-year mark. The two-day meeting, hosted by partner Cuerva, took place against the backdrop of Granada's rich historical heritage, providing an inspiring setting for discussions and workshops.

The first day of the meeting on April 3rd commenced with a warm welcome from key figures representing the community and city administrations, including Natalia Marquez García, Managing Director of the Andalusian Energy Agency, María del Carmen Navarro Cruz, General Director of Planning, Modernization, and Fund Management, and Ignacio Cuerva Valdivia, CEO of Cuerva. Their support underscored the commitment to SMARTeeSTORY's mission of promoting energy efficiency and sustainability in heritage buildings.

A tour of the demo site: Granada's Royal Chancellery, provided much input for all partners. Built in the 1500's to house the Court of Justice at the time, the building has held prisoners and seen members of court take oath and, even today, still serves as the seat of Andalucian High Court of Justice. Our technical partners assessed the demo site as preparation for initial stock taking measures, while the rest of the consortium were left inspired from the rich history of the building.

Day two of the meeting saw participants immersed in workshops focused on the project's three demonstration sites. Insights gathered from a demo site visit on the first day provided valuable context for discussions on planning the interventions to be employed in the coming months. Throughout the meeting, participants exchanged ideas, solutions, and challenges, reflecting the collaborative spirit of SMARTeeSTORY.

As the project nears its one-year milestone, there is a growing sense of momentum and progress towards the common goal of setting heritage buildings as examples of smart and energy-efficient building stock in the EU.

The meeting concluded, yet participants departed with renewed enthusiasm and a shared commitment to advancing the objectives of SMARTeeSTORY. The consortium looks forward to continued collaboration and the successful implementation of energy-efficient solutions in heritage buildings across Europe!
