Green building services

The European Space Agency is seeking to assess the feasibility of satellite-based services to green buildings.

What's the open innovation challenge?

The European Space Agency (ESA) is inviting tenders to assess the technical and commercial feasibility of satellite-based services applied to sustainable built environments.

ESA Space Solutions is offering 100% funding for feasibility studies of up to €200k. Applicable funding level is subject to authorisation by the relevant national delegation. Bidders are requested to obtain evidence in the form of a letter of authorisation by their respective delegations before submitting a proposal.

Key focus areas

  • Monitoring buildings’ energy consumption and environmental impact
  • Using sensors and smart monitoring technologies to anticipate problems (for example, natural hazards or land deformation)
  • Analysing buildings’ surrounding environment (natural and built)
  • 3D and offsite construction
  • Retrofitting existing buildings to improve energy efficiency, reduce operational costs and reduce negative environmental impact
  • Determining a go-to renovation strategy (for example, ventilation, renewable energy, smart grids applications)
  • Planning green neighbourhoods
