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.

Built environment simulation and design computation have become ubiquitous throughout the design world, from small scale offices to multinational firms. Simulation workflows harness the ever-growing power of personal computers, and the increasing use of cloud computing, to aid design teams in their increasingly complex endeavours throughout the globe. Disciplinary boundaries are blurring, as simulation-based decision support systems bring experts from various fields together to develop low-tech solutions, using high-tech simulation tools.

On 28 September 2017, the European Commission launched the pilot phase of Level(s), a new voluntary EU framework for sustainable buildings which will help transform the building sector. It is the first tool of this kind that has been developed for use across the whole of Europe.

Level(s) is a voluntary reporting framework aiming to improve the sustainability of buildings. It is a tool for designing and constructing sustainable buildings. Using existing standards, it provides a common EU approach to the assessment of environmental performance in the built environment.   Sustainable buildings use less energy and materials, and are healthier and more comfortable spaces for occupants. Along with lower environmental impact, sustainable buildings are relatively low cost to run and in the long term, more valuable properties.
