Swiss Contribution

Ernst Basler + Partner Switzerland Ltd., Nova Energie Ltd. and Binz Energie am Bau Ltd. have proven, long-term experience in the renewable energy and energy efficiency fields within the building sector. These Swiss partners in Switzerland and Chile are linked very closely with major stakeholders from education/training, construction, communities and national authorities.


The described project will develop and disseminate concrete solutions for the energetic retrofitting of existing Chilean constructions. Four modules are planned: 

  • On the basis of pilot renewals, demonstrate appropriate solutions, i.e. adapted to the economic and social frameworks.
  • The refurbishments serve as a basis for specialist, trade and a wide range of events geared towards training professionals in architecture, expert planning and workmanship.
  • A building renovation program is designed for national authorities (Ministry of Environment,    Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Planning and Urban Development) which aims at accelerating and improving the energetic retrofitting of Chilean buildings.  
  • The results are systematically recorded, evaluated and effectively communicated on a broad scale.
