building energy performance

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.

Concept and objectives:   The Auto-DAN project aims to enable homes and small businesses across the EU to optimize their energy consumption and provide an assessment of the live energy performance of a building which takes into account the quality of appliances/systems installed, user operational habits and the smart readiness of a building.

Concept and objectives:   Existing measurements of equipment and building energy use paint a bleak image: real-life energy consumption often exceeds design predictions by more than 100%.   As a result, reducing the gap between designed and measured energy use has become central in current efforts to increase energy efficiency.

Concept:   Residential heating energy accounts for more than 30 percent of energy use in most countries of Europe and Central Asia, and even more than 40 percent in the Balkans. Previous construction and heating methods did not focus on saving energy and the environment.   As a result, a highly inefficient energy use intensifies the impact of escalating energy prices on low-income households.

Concept:   Buildings are central to meeting the sustainability challenge. In the developed world, buildings consume over 70% of the electric power generated and 40% of primary energy and are responsible for 40% of CO2 emissions from the energy services they require. In Europe, 75-90% of today’s buildings will be in use in 2050.

The iBRoad tools, consisting of the individual Building Renovation Roadmap and Logbook, were field-tested in Bulgaria, Poland and Portugal during the period March to May 2019.   Additionally, the iBRoad Logbook was field-tested in Germany. Prior to field-testing, project partners from the pilot countries received an online train-the-trainer seminar.

Stakeholders mapping is the first and the most important step to identify the most appropriate and valuable stakeholders, how they can contribute to the project development and how they can benefit from the results of the iBRoad.   Stakeholder engagement is a process that depends on the proper identification. This is an elaborated by INZEB report, describing how the national partners, identified iBRoad’s stakeholders per participating country and at an EU level.
