Campaigning and awareness raising

Concept and Objectives:   Do European consumers pay attention to energy labels when they buy an electric appliance, a car or a house?  What information are they looking for? How important is energy consumption in their decisions?     This is what the CONSEED research project aims to find out through surveys and field trials among households and various economic sectors across Europe.

When energy-saving measures are planned in social housing buildings, the environmental aim is combined with the scope of reducing inequality. In Zaragoza, Spain, a team of social workers is helping the tenants of a multi-family building to accept a challenging refurbishment   If energy-saving measures came knocking at the door, wouldn’t it be reassuring to have someone on hand to help you navigate the benefits and inconvenience, someone to help dispel your doubts?

La Belgique doit réduire ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 35% d’ici 2030 .   Alors que le secteur résidentiel et les bureaux représentent 74% de la consommation énergétique de la Région bruxelloise ; alors que 85% des 573.276 logements bruxellois ont été construits avant les années 60 ; alors que 30% des bâtiments ne sont pas isolés du tout à Bruxelles : la stratégie rénovation bruxelloise entend réaliser cet immense potentiel de rénovation.

Concept and Objectives   Belgium must reach the climate goals! Look at the potential – Belgian energy use is 70% above European average – You can already tell that improvement is not only possible, it is vital. BE REEL! and its partners support these ambitious plans.   We aspire a renovation rate increase for which we develop, test, evaluate, refine and demonstrate the most appropriate structural measures.

Buildings are responsible for approximately 40 % of energy consumption and 36 % of CO2 emissions in the EU, according to the European Commission. It’s also widely accepted that to reduce the amount of energy used, consumers have to change their behaviour.   But old habits die hard, especially when it comes to making sacrifices for the environment.

In many EU countries multi-family dwellings represent the dominant residential solution. But structural renovations to cut emissions and save energy may be a real challenge in such contexts, if the communities are not properly involved in the process   Watch the video here: http://www.buildheat.eu/building-energy-efficient-communities/

Concept   In industrial and service sectors, energy efficiency investments are often not implemented due to a combination of factors and barriers faced by the actor involved. Even for enterprises that are subject to mandatory audits, the recommendations are often not implemented due to those factors and barriers.
