SEasonal PErformance factor and MOnitoring for heat pump systems in the building sector     The IEE project aimed at overcoming market barriers to a wider application of heat pumps, namely the lack of robust data on the conditions "in real installations" influencing reliability and seasonal efficiency, i.e. the seasonal performance factor (SPF) of heat pump systems across Europe. The objective was to get a broader acceptance of heat pump systems and improved quality assurance for heat pump systems in the building sector.

Training of Photovoltaic Installers     The high photovoltaic market growth rates, further favoured by the EU supporting policies and the favourable national regulatory frameworks, may cause some concern to the PV industry due to the lack of adequately skilled workforce for PV installation and maintenance. Furthermore, the interested parties (manufacturers, developers, investors) seek skills certification and quality assurance in all phases of a PV installation (design, installation and maintenance).

To make new energy efficient buildings or to renovate the existing stock? That is the question. Experts from the construction sector, gathered in Rome and discussed solutions to make the second option worthwhile and cheaper.   Energy consumption in the construction sector is a key issue in the fight against climate change. It is often approached when planning new buildings, but there is little tendency to renovate the existing stock.
