 Project objective

The building sector is responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in Europe. Currently, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient, while only 0.4-1.2 of the building stocks are renovated each year. Therefore, renovation of existing buildings has the potential to lead to significant energy savings – potentially reducing the EU’s total energy consumption by 5-6% and lowering CO2 emissions by about 5%. Market trends are driven by the advancement of new materials that improve efficiency, have greater capacity and provide affordable pricing. Mauri will suppose a step ahead in the state-of-the-art window materials used in Civil Engineer. The main asset is our 45 years of experience working with polyurethane, a material that offers top insulation properties, excellent heat stabilizer and highly compressive strength. Based on this, we have been able to develop PWS, an energy efficient monolithic window system framed with Polyurethane that is not offered by the alternatives in the market. It allows for the first time the removal of all thermal bridges (responsible for 30% of energy loss) resulting on an overall optimisation of energy efficiency (up to 80%), CO2 emissions divided by 15% and 47% reduction on equipment costs (compared with other material framework products e.g. wood, PVC). As it is one-piece installation ready system (glass included) it reduces assembly costs by 50% and offers zero maintenance. In addition, it offers other advanced polyurethane features for decision making on energy efficiency. The target market is promising as the Global Civil Engineering Market is projected to be valued at €10.62 trillion by 2025. With PWS we expect to generate €11.4M in revenues with €8.68M in cumulative profits, while increasing our team to at least 25 employees by 2025.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "PWS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
