The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The Horizon 2020 funded Project OrbEEt (ORganizational Behaviour improvement for Energy Efficient adminisTrative public offices) aims to introduce an innovative solution to facilitate public and social engagement to action for energy efficiency by providing real-time assessments of the energy impact and energy-related organisational behaviour.

La ventilation influence le calcul du niveau E dans les réglementations régionales sur la performance énergétique des bâtiments (PEB). La présente Infofiche examine les possibilités de diminution de ce niveau, tant pour le résidentiel que pour le non-résidentiel. Elle s'adresse au responsable du calcul PEB et à l'auteur de projet, mais également aux entrepreneurs concernés par la ventilation afin de les aider à convaincre sur le choix de solutions énergétiquement efficaces.   Sommaire de cette infofiche:

Building Up SME Energy Productivity   On their own, SMEs don’t consume huge amounts of energy. But collectively, their energy demand is a different story. The IEA estimates SMEs consume around 13% of total global energy demand (that’s 74 exajoules for those keeping track). Yet, approximately 30% of that demand could be eliminated by cost-effective energy efficiency measures, such as implementing energy management software. That would save more energy than Japan and Korea consume in a year!

This paper presents the new framework for the realisation of reliable pressurisation tests in Belgium and the provisions taken to widen the number of buildings where a valid pressurisation test can be realised. The pressurisation test is described in standards. In Belgium, the measured airtightness performance can be used in the regional Energy Performance (EP) regulations in order to improve the calculated performance. A few years ago, supplementary specifications to the test standard (NBN EN 13829) describing detailed specific elements of the test, were added to the regulations.

Most countries in the Central and Eastern Europe region already have or are setting up renovation programmes for multi-apartment buildings. Some countries have run these programmes successfully for a long time, while others are setting them up more recently. Several countries have had such programmes for a while now, but on an “on and off” basis with mixed results in different years.

Energy efficiency is a commercial success factor. Not only is it the most direct way to cut energy and consequently costs, but consuming less energy also mitigates climate change and preserves the environment. Energy efficient small & medium enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in achieving the goals of the EU’s Energy Union Strategy. However, in order to boost SMEs’ intelligent energy use, they need guidance and support.
