ABRACADABRA was a three-year Horizon 2020 coordinated by the Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna. ABRACADABRA stood for Assistant Buildings’ addition to Retrofit, Adopt, Cure And Develop the Actual Buildings up to zeRo energy, Activating a market for deep renovation. The project ended in February 2019. ABRACADABRA strategy was based on the prior assumption that non-energy related benefits play a key role in the deep renovation of existing buildings. It focused on the generation of a substantial increase of the real estate value of the buildings through significant energy and architectural transformation (mainly integration of Renewable Energy Sources systems with new volume additions or new buildings’ construction) to go beyond the minimum energy performance and aim at achieving Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs).
