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.

IEA EBC Annex 71: Building energy performance assessment based on in-situ measurements
Despite regulation enforcements, monitoring of actual energy performances of buildings reveals in many cases a significant gap with theoretically designed targets. This accentuates the need to develop reliable methods that can be applied on site to assess the actual performance of buildings.

There is an intrinsic understanding that 'good architecture' defines the long-term functionality and resilience of buildings and that it has a strong bearing on building performance. However, it is not considered ‘measurable’ and it rarely features as a quantifiable value driver in investment cycles and legislation. This survey aims at investigating how the value of architectural solutions for better building performance is being taught in European Universities to architectural students.

Smart grids are intelligent power grids, encompassing all players of the energy system via a communication network. As power supply systems, they coordinate bidirectional communication between producer, consumer, energy storage and the power grid in real time. In the future, the electricity infrastructure will need intelligent development and an expansion of information and communication techniques. The promotion of renewable energy requires the sharing of more information because electricity is not only generated in high voltages anymore.
