This paper presents an innovative and standardized system for roofs and façades, integrating different technological solutions that improve the energetic efficiency, thermal, acoustic and light comfort, as well as air quality in buildings. The BRESAER system combines industrialized active and passive solutions and nanotechnology over one common modular, versatile and light substructure. The system consists of a base of industrialized and adaptable substructure to which different coverings are

The system of multi-response envelope is adaptable to the clime and orientation of the building, which allows the replicability of the system on actual inefficient buildings. The overall challenge and required policies at EU level are presented, along with the specific objectives and strategies of BRESAER to solve these issues. Then the characteristics of the whole system are explained, followed by the analysis of each of the innovative elements that integrate the system. Finally, conclusions learnt in the project and future ambitions are presented.
