Investor Confidence Project (ICP) Europe is developing a suite of building energy renovation roadmaps - Energy Performance Protocols - that aim to reduce transaction costs by assembling existing standards and practices into a consistent and transparent process. These tools then enable a marketplace for building owners, project developers, utilities, public programmes and investors to trade in standardised energy efficiency projects.

Mala in srednja podjetja (MSP) se v gradbeništvu soočajo z dvema ključnima problemoma:
1. Potrebujejo takojšen in vsesplošen dostop do konkurenčnega znanja, da bi se lahko prilagodili povečanemu povpraševanju/zahtevam trga ter pospešili uporabo porajajočih se tehnologij in materialov za energijsko prenovo stavb.
Prilagoditev bo zagotovila večje zadovoljstvo lastnikov stavb, hkrati pa bo zmanjšanje porabe energije zagotovilo skladnost z lokalnimi in regionalnimi okoljskimi zahtevami.

Under the European Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU, EU countries should set up an energy efficiency obligation scheme. This scheme requires energy companies to achieve yearly energy savings of 1.5% of annual sales to final consumers.In order to reach this target, companies have to carry out measures which help final consumers improve energy efficiency. This may include improving the heating system in consumers' homes, installing double glazed windows, or better insulating roofs to reduce energy consumption.
