The EU CLIMAWIN project, led by a consortium of European SME manufacturers, suppliers and customers of windows and ventilation systems, aimed to address a major market opportunity regarding energy efficient fenestration systems for renovation of residential and commercial buildings.

The project aimed to develop a novel high performance window with electronic operation of an auto-regulated natural ventilation system and electronic insulating night blind powered by solar power.

The Climawin project was primarily aimed at the renovation sector, especially in old buildings which do not have energy efficient ventilation systems. The Climawin project was a collaboration between Research Partners; Aalborg Universitet, Denmark, Universidade do Minho, Portugal, Designit, Denmark. Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Foerderung der Angewandten Forschung, Germany and the SMEs; Horn Vinduer, Denmark, Rauh Sr Fensterbau Gmbh. Germany, Solearth Ecological Architecture, Ireland.
