Renovation Strategy Tool
RESTO - FinEst Mid-Size Pilot - FinEst Centre for Smart Cities
REnovation Strategy TOol (RESTO) pilot aims to develop an innovative digital platform for municipal decision-makers that would allow them to optimize required investments into their building stock. Pilot is carried out together with Võru city government in their town centre. RESTO would allow to evaluate the impact of alternatives in connection to different aspects such as technology, building and infrastructure design, urban planning, and business models. Furthermore, utilising the digital twin data from the Building Registry and other public databases makes it possible to identify optimal configurations that allow to account predefined limitations like availability of funds, energy performance ambition, environmental goals etc. In other words, RESTO would allow municipalities to define, generate, simulate and quantitatively analyse renovation scenarios adapted to specific districts and buildings in order to make sensible investment decisions.
The pilot project is led by Targo Kalamees and Einari Kisel.
The pilot program is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Estonian Ministry of Research and Education.
