The Low Energy Building Database is a repository of low-energy building information created to support the planning and development of low energy new build and refurbishment with exemplary case studies. This tool was developed following the Retrofit for Future (RfF) programme launched in the UK about ten years ago, when £17m have been allocated by the government for increasing the energy efficiency of the building stock.

Open Source Tools to Share, Compare, and Reuse Low-Carbon Energy Data Data is central for energy research and analysis. Unfortunately, energy data is often difficult to find, mixed in different repositories, and generally fragmented. This results in a lack of efficiency for research and energy transition management.

Data is fundamental to understand how much a building consumes, how much it is efficient and whether thermal comfort is adequate. However, how should this data be evaluated? Is it still possible to increase energy efficiency of buildings? A solution would be to make a comparison with similar contexts: for example, how much does a building consume on average under specific climatic conditions? How much energy can it obtain from its installed renewable energy sources?
