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.

The conclusions and recommendations on a given topic are then presented in full in part A of the summary report. These constitute the most important result of the project. Part B gives an overview of all other project material related to the given topic, which allows you to easily identify the information most pertinent to your interest at any time. Part C lists the project partners and sponsors. Within the ASIEPI work on thermal bridges the following aspects have been addressed:

The Parties have agreed the following preliminary overarching themes for this MoU:Globally consistent metrics and protocols for measuring, accounting and reporting of energy use and the resulting impacts particularly with respect to greenhouse gas emission of buildings. Joint leadership and collaboration in the development of the core metric and protocol. Discrete leadership and decision rights for complimentary metrics/ programmes with support from the Parties.

EBRD is offering to Moldova and Kyrgyzstan very useful and needed help by establishing new regulatory framework in the building sector. It is the first time that primary and secondary legislation will be developed using experiences from the European Union and in compliance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2002/91/EC in CIS countries.

It is expected that many countries will between 2015 and 2020 have regulations imposing requirements for new buildings which are near-zero energy targets. This has major consequences:

Buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of EU CO2 emissions. Energy performance of buildings is key to achieve the EU Climate & Energy objectives, namely the reduction of a 20% of the Greenhouse gases emissions by 2020 and a 20% energy savings by 2020. Improving the energy performance of buildings is a cost-effective way of fighting against climate change and improving energy security, while also creating job opportunities, particularly in the building sector.

The IEE USE Efficiency project intends to create a common stream for energy efficiency systems in university buildings. Universities and students are proposed as shining examples both for energy efficiency solutions and for energy efficiency behaviour. The Project involves 10 EU countries (9 Universities and 4 market players), and has the aim to improve energy efficiency in university buildings and to establish training programs for students.

The EPBD requires Member States to define building energy performance requirements... but did the Member States take this opportunity to strengthen their existing legislation? Member States are free to define their calculation methods and their requirements... Is it therefore possible to compare requirements across Europe? If yes, are the requirements from one country more severe than those of neighbouring countries?

When buying a car or appliance, an energy efficiency label, usually indicating energy efficiency classes, is displayed to inform the consumer of the product's energy efficiency. When talking about energy efficiency in the built environment it is important to know how much energy is consumed by various building types. Within the EnerKey Project an EnerKey Performance Certificate for South African buildings was developed.
