Europe aims to be a global role model in energy transition and reducing its carbon footprint. Cities and the building sector play a decisive role in that process. The Programme “Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods for Sustainable Urban Development” aims to support the planning, deployment and replication of 100 Positive Energy Neighbourhoods by 2025 and is joined by 17 EU member states.

Concept   Around 461 million ton/year of C&DW are generated in EU28. Recent studies on the characterization of C&DW samples at European level revealed a predominant fraction of concrete (52% average). Over the last years, novel technology has been developed aiming to guarantee high quality recycled concrete aggregates for use in new concrete, thereby closing the concrete loop.

IEA EBC Annex 71: Building energy performance assessment based on in-situ measurements   Despite regulation enforcements, monitoring of actual energy performances of buildings reveals in many cases a significant gap with theoretically designed targets. This accentuates the need to develop reliable methods that can be applied on site to assess the actual performance of buildings.
