New solutions for more comfortable, efficient and seismic-safe homes

15 European entities working together in the innovation project ProGETonE to deliver new ways to renovate buildings, by increasing their seismic safety, drastically reducing the energy consumption, while keeping a user-centred approach.

The consortium developing the action is integrated by universities, technical consultants, manufacturers, SME’s, public authorities and associations from 8 countries.


The project develops new external structures that are able to support earthquakes in line with current regulations. That means a great upgrade for most of buildings in Mediterranean seismic zones, where the existing stock is too often in unsafe conditions. This new structure will support the additional high performance envelope, in terms of energy savings, renewable energy and comfort systems, as well as the different design possibilities (no balcony, balcony or extra living space).


New integrated solutions will be developed, using the technologies already existing in the market. Different materials, fixation systems, prefab modules and mounting solutions will be studied to come up with an optimized solution that can rapidly be mounted, so as to decrease substantially construction costs.


Energy targets are ambitious in ProGETonE project, which pretends to be aligned with European climate targets. In this sense, a high performing envelope is a must (insulation, high performance windows, airtightness), altogether with on-site energy generation (PV modules as a basis and wind turbine as an option), looking for net zero energy balance. The retrofit needs to provide high indoor conditions, so efficient ventilation is also included.
