Project Streamer - Introduction
Project Streamer is an industry-driven collaborative research project on Energy Efficient Buildings (EeB) in the healthcare district, funded by the European Union. It is a European initiative with a 4 year duration which commenced in September 2013, and is aimed at reducing the energy use and carbon emissions of both new and retrofitted buildings in healthcare districts of the EU by 50% in the next 10 years. There are 19 partners (5 large companies, 6 small / medium enterprises, 4 research institutes, 3 public hospitals and 1 private hospital) from 9 countries across the EU.
All manner of mixed building types will be analysed, ie acute hospitals, clinics, offices, laboratories, kitchens, laundries and educational buildings.
