The European Display Campaign is a voluntary scheme designed by energy experts from European towns and cities. When started in 2003 it was initially aimed at encouraging local authorities to publicly display the energy and environmental performances of their public buildings using the same energy label that is used for household appliances. The Display Poster is available in 26 languages. The online calculation tool, using monitored consumption data, is available in the participants section of the Display website. It can be adapted to complement any national implementation scheme (so far for France and Switzerland). It is easy to use and can be used for all buildings sizes and 11 building types. The tool also calculates the building’s water performance and allows users to simulate potential improvements thus enabling people to visualise real savings that can be made via refurbishments.

As most Member States now have a National certificate, Display is increasingly being used as a complementary communication tool. With its strong emphasis on local communication campaigns and large variety of communication tools Display goes beyond the basic requirements of the EPBD.
Display can be used as one key action in a city’s 2020 Sustainable Energy Action Plan: The visible use of the poster in numerous buildings, technical improvements as well as awareness-raising activities towards the users are an important stepping stone to reach the Covenant of Mayors commitment.
