The assessment of the finalists
The National-Award winners of each participating country were automatically qualified for the European GreenBuilding Award. The 36 final projects were assessed by an expert jury consisting of five buildings and energy experts according to a set of quantitative and qualitative criteria. The quantitative criteria were assessed according to a simple points system counting the concrete saving measures. The qualitative criteria, however, covered innovation and replication potential.
About the GreenBuilding Programme
GreenBuilding is a programme on a voluntary basis initiated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC). GreenBuilding addresses owners of newly built or refurbished private or public non-residential buildings, who want to invest in the energy efficiency of their buildings, thus reducing the overall energy consumption. According to a comprehensive energy concept which they have to submit, the overall energy consumption has to be reduced by 25% with refurbishing projects, whereas with newly erected buildings the energy consumption has to be at least 25% less than required by the building standard in force at that time. Throughout the EU, there are more than 155 buildings belonging to GreenBuilding Partners.
