The Energy performance of buildings directive (EPBD) is, together with the Energy efficiency directive, the main legislative instruments to promote the energy performance of buildings and to boost renovation within the EU.
The EPBD (2010/31/EU) has been in force since 2010 and helps consumers to make informed choices allowing them to save both energy and money.

The EU-funded project ExcEED collects data from new and energy efficient buildings (such as energy performance, CO2 emissions, etc.), gathered into a database.
Through the data collected, the platform will foster energy awareness and will build analysis of energy performances regarding existing buildings’ data.

Drastically lowering energy consumption in buildings – and indeed, developing nearly-zero energy buildings (nZEBs) and positive-energy (or ‘smart’) buildings that can interact with the grid – is a cornerstone of Europe’s climate and energy policy.

Albero project of rehabilitation, modernization and requalification of the architectural envelope is part of this urban dynamic as much by its singular aestheticism as by the proposed living environment wanted healthy and pleasant to live for future users. Sequences of access are revisited from the outside to work stations and places of relaxation by revealing and optimizing the potential of this obsolete office building. With these ambitious stakes, our response is also accompanied by a remarkable attitude.
