Rennovates transforms the former Zubillaga school in Oñati to an effective building.

The City Council, MCC (Mondragon Corporación Cooperativa), LKS Ingeniería and Mondragon Unibertsitatea (Higher Polytechnic School) are the promoters of this initiative, which is part of a EU innovation project accelerating sustainable energy usage and reducing green house gases.

The main objective(s):

  • Extend the lifespan of old buildings with low energy performance and poor living comfort
  • Maximize the efficiency of renewable energy sources that optimize use at local level and minimize the impact on the existing network of energy infrastructures
  • Be cost-effective by using prefabricated systems and large-scale replication of systems
