1. Introduction

This document is an informed consent form, please read this document carefully before making a decision on whether participating or not. Please feel free to ask any questions to ensure that you fully understand the purpose and proceedings of this study, including risks and benefits.

2. SUREFIT project

SUREFIT project will demonstrate fast-track renovation of existing domestic buildings by integrating innovative, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious prefabricated technologies. This is to reach target of near zero energy through reducing heat losses through building envelope, and energy consumption by heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting, while increasing the share of renewable energy in buildings. This will be achieved through a systematic approach involving key stakeholders (building owners/users, manufacturers, product/services developers) in space heating, cooling, domestic hot water, lighting and power generation, as well as a demonstration phase in 5 representative buildings in different European climates. More info about the project can be found at https://surefitproject.eu/.
