The concept of "Geo-clusters" is highly relevant to stimulate the potential of energy efficient buildings across Europe. Geo-clusters are trans-national areas where strong similarities are found (i.e. climate, culture and behaviour, construction typologies, economy, energy price and policies and gross domestic product, …). The GE2O project aims at laying the foundations of such a process in Europe.

"If you can’t measure it .... you can't manage it" – this might be an old management saying, but it's one that Volker Stelzer would agree with. As a scientist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), Stelzer is responsible for developing recommendations for construction professionals from the many individual CONCERTO project experiences in the CONCERTO Premium meta-project.

As an example, communities can start by gaining an overview of the technologies used in CONCERTO projects, along with the results of the projects, which include highly usable indicators such as CO2 avoidance costs and amortisation periods. Calculating these indicators includes both measured and calculated energy flow, with maximum transparency that assists in understanding how the values have been attained and how to interpret them correctly.
