The aim of EPI-CREM (Energy Performance Integration in Corporate Real Estate Management) is to embed energy efficiency into existing Corporate Real Estate Management processes.
Until now, most public building organizations don’t pay much attention to energy efficiency in relation to decisions on Real Estate. One of the reasons is a lack of tools to facilitate integrated decision-making, in which energy efficiency is taken into account amongst other aspects. EPI-CREM aims to improve energy efficiency and rational use of energy across public building stock in Europe by embedding energy issues in decision making processes within Corporate Real Estate Management (CREM) at the strategic level, and translating those decisions into tactical and operational levels of building management. This way the decision making process surrounding energy saving measures is embedded in the CREM-process, and is made structural and more cost effective. To reach these goals EPI-CREM provides a strategy and a set of tools enabling building owners and users to make the energy aspect an integral aspect of Corporate Real Estate Management.
