South Poland Cleantech Cluster

is the initiator of the krk UrbanHub project - a sustainable CEE (Central- and Eastern European) urbanization hub
krakowurbanhub is a partner in the urbanhub europe consortium of European cities consisting of BLOXHUB in Copenhagen, KIRAHub in Helsinki, Munich Urban Colab, FACTORY Hammerbrooklyn Hamburg, FAKTORY Berlin, Urban Resilience Hub Barcelona
krk UrbanHub is a national and international meeting place that engages people in architecture, design and sustainable urban development. This is done through exhibitions, debates, events, business development and new partnerships.
krk UrbaHhub is an ecosystem for creating cities of the future, and at the same time a space to share ideas, skills and strategies for designing buildings and urban development based on a people-centered approach and high standards of sustainable development, and a membership-based community combining urban development, architecture, design, design, construction, circular economy and digitization.

South Poland Cleantech Cluster

SPCleantech is co-founder of European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments (ICEI Alliance) consisting of European clusters and universities. During 2020-2021 there have been held meetings to prepare the establishment of the European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments, hosted by the Circular Economy Centre at Digipolis, Kemi, Finland.

The ICEI Alliance has for ambition to make Europe the global industrial circular economy platform to accelerate the deployment of world-class circular economy solutions to industry. It acts as a pipeline of business-led circular economy investment projects. Alliance members support businesses with the structuring of their investment cases as well as with accessing funding and financing streams.

SPCleantech organized on 01.03.2018 in cooperation with the Association of Municipalities and Poviats of Małopolska (SGiPM) and a member of the cluster Danish architectural company BJERG Arkitekter from Warsaw, seminar “Healthy building = healthy inhabitants = a healthy city. The healing role of architecture in public buildings “. 

In addition to the BJERG Arkitekter company, other members of SPCleantech participated in the seminar as: lecturers of the Małopolskie Centrum Budownictwa Energooszczędnego (MCBE, Cracow University of Technology), Horizone Studio, FRAPOL, and Raciechowice Commune.

During the seminar, specialists explained the legal status for today and for the coming years. Many examples of passive and nearly zero-energy constructions in Poland and Scandinavia were presented, as well as examples of public-private partnership (PPP) in public construction.

BJERG Arkitektur – Poland’s first active and passive integration center in Namysłów.

Pursuant to Directive 2010/31 / EU, from the beginning of 2021, all newly built facilities in EU countries will have to be buildings with almost zero energy consumption. However, as of 2019, the obligation to minimize energy consumption will apply to new public buildings and those owned by public authorities. These activities are dictated by the implementation of the European policy for the development of energy-saving technologies and energy conservation in buildings.

From many years of experience of the EU member states and solutions implemented in Poland, it follows that the economic benefits achieved through low-energy construction are evident, and the cost of construction of such buildings, slightly higher than the construction costs of a standard building. Owing to the low-energy objects, considerable effects are achieved primarily in the field of environmental protection, especially due to the rational use of thermal energy, which significantly reduces atmospheric pollution.

The public facility is understood as a building intended for the needs of public administration, justice, army, guard, police culture, religious worship, education, higher education, science, health and social care, and sport.
