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.

Buildings account for more than 70% of U.S. electricity use, and a comparable share of power sector CO2 emissions. Improving the way electricity is consumed and reducing the overall amount of electricity consumed in buildings would significantly reduce energy costs to consumers and facilitate the transition to a decarbonized economy.   Overview of the roadmap:

For EU to become climate-neutral by 2050, buildings need to transform from passive isolated elements to energy-efficient and smart-grid ready buildings, able to act as active nodes well integrated to the energy grids and other infrastructures, while answering occupants needs.

The building is one of 5 planned buildings. Two of the five buildings have already been realised and will be put into operation in late summer 2020. In addition to the Passive House standard, the criteria of an efficiency house 40 and the solar house standard are also fulfilled.

Building sector accounts a significant percentage of total global energy-related CO2 emissions. Energy is consumed at different buildings’ lifecycle and can be analysed from different perspectives or scales. That means that competitive solutions should be found in the building sector to revolutionise energy efficiency and management in buildings.

European researchers have developed a user-friendly smart app to help people improve their energy-saving behaviours. Energy demand is growing across many countries in the world as populations increase and people get richer. In fact, global energy consumption has risen nearly every year for more than half a century.

One of the daily challenges of life is, "How do I get people – including myself – to do what I want?". It’s something the app industry has tried to tackle, and it was also one of the questions at the core of eTEACHER. Interview with the Project Coordinator: Dr. Gloria Calleja-Rodríguez from CEMOSA.

GridRule is one of the COMPILE projects tools that enables the community managers (aggregators, micro-grid operators, etc.) an operation and management of the local grid within network limits. It sets up the coordination of individual community members and enables the optimization of the whole community energy needs.   Features

The EEW4 survey objectives and approach: Over the last 15 years, the importance of energy efficiency in European policy has steadily increased. The adoption of the "Energy Efficiency First" principle and the Green Deal brought a new policy era, also for energy efficiency. Since 2006, Energy Efficiency Watch (EEW) projectshave accompanied thispolicy development and implementation process.
