The EEA report ‘Trends and projections in Europe 2019 — Tracking progress towards Europe’s climate and energy targets’ presents analysis of the EU progress towards the 2020 and 2030 targets for climate and energy. The analysis is based on official statistics on energy and GHG emissions up to 2017; preliminary data for 2018, including the 'approximated EU GHG inventory'; and national projections of GHG emissions reported in 2019.

Deep disparities define today’s energy world. The dissonance between well-supplied oil markets and growing geopolitical tensions and uncertainties. The gap between the ever-higher amounts of greenhouse gas emissions being produced and the insufficiency of stated policies to curb those emissions in line with international climate targets. The gap between the promise of energy for all and the lack of electricity access for 850 million people around the world.

Besides energy efficiency, the new zero carbon standard also considers the upfront carbon emissions associated with the construction of the homes. It also encourages home builders to actually measure how the homes perform after they are purchased and lived in.

The legislation requires all large enterprises based in the European Union - with at least 250 employees, or annual revenues over €50 million and an annual balance sheet of over €43 million - to comply with the national energy audit obligation, including calculating their total energy consumption and identifying saving opportunities across their estate, every four years.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology that has been developed to evaluate the environmental impact of buildings, with respect to their processes, their materials and use (energy) throughout the whole life cycle of a building. It is not to be confused with Life Cycle Costs which instead focuses on cost reduction, especially interesting when embarking in the design and construction of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs).

This Call is also available here in German, in English and in Italian. The event will be in Italian and English, with the possibility of asking questions in German.   WHY RE-THINKING TECHNOLOGIES   Proper technology solution-sets (the gears in the picture) can enable a regenerative indoor environment for building users and for the Planet. Technologies will be the key to promote a shift of paradigm in building design from the “less bad” to the “more regenerative”

According to Eurostat 2017, 42% of the European population currently live in flats (condominiums, multi-owned properties, tenements, social housing, etc.). Retrofitting condominiums (tenements and flatted buildings) is highly strategic for local authorities, as a large number of private owners can be reached at the same time. Once the retrofitting is done, co-owners benefit from comfortable homes as well as from financial and carbon savings.   Fragmented ownership

What does the transition towards lowcarbon building stock mean for Europe?   European building stock is responsible for around a third of CO2 emissions, and the EU has set a target of 20 % reduction by 2020 and 60 % by 2030, from a 1990 baseline. Meeting these targets means focusing on decarbonising the power supply and making concerted efforts to reduce energy demand through retrofits of existing stock.
