CQ_004: Scout is looking for Innovative Materials/Technologies for the Construction Market - - 20/7/2012
Need Description and Background:
The Scout wants to achieve more energy-efficient buildings along with cost reduction opportunities. The building sector accounts for 40% of energy consumption and two-thirds of CO2 emissions. The main challenge for the building sector is to push the market to develop cost-efficient solutions that can help speed up the market uptake of better and improved technologies.
The development of advanced insulation systems that deliver improved insulation performance with lighter and thinner materials will enable the construction energy consumption and costs go down.
Key Success Criteria:
Key characteristics of the successful technology:
- An advanced insulation system with improved insulation capacity
- Lighter and thinner insulation materials
- Offer cost saving opportunities
- Preferably a late stage development solution with little additional development work.
