Together with the EU Clean Energy for All package of initiatives and legislation, a major online data portal has been launched on the 30th of November, 2016. The EU Building Stock Observatory, managed by BPIE, provides a comprehensive snapshot of the building stock characteristics in EU28, and monitors the implementation of relevant EU Directives in Member States by presenting 250 indicators.

The European Commission (EC) recognises the need for high-quality building stock data as a key precondition to reach its 2050 decarbonisation goals. In the current draft proposal for a revised Directive on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD), the EC introduces new obligations to mend the data gaps. A newly launched EU-funded project, ExcEED, promises to establish a robust and durable return of knowledge mechanism collecting actual buildings energy performance data and providing information to policy makers, designers, and energy managers.

The advent of IoT increase considerably the potential number of smart devices collecting data, resulting in an additional level of complexity for facility managers.
Analytics solutions effectively manage the new state of information overload, identifying and focusing on key information and problems on real basis.

This report provides data, collected by OPEN (Observatoire Permanent de l'amélioration ENergétique des logements), on the energy renovation of French residential buildings, completed in 2014. The OPEN observatory has been set up by ADEME (L'Agence de l'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie) and the French Ministry of Environment in order to measure changes in the market of energy renovation of housing, providing quantitative data and measuring the market penetration of energy efficient products and equipment. It also evaluates the impact of governmental and professional...

The assessment of energy performances of buildings has been carried out by structuring a national catalogue of the existing buildings. Within the catalogue, a characteristic building typology for Serbia will be defined, together with the descriptions and characteristic elements of the building structures (construction, envelope, wall types, windows, ceilings, roofs, heating systems), and the energy performances of these elements.

The overall aim of the EPSRC funded Building and Energy Data Frameworks project was to help produce greatly improved data on the building stock of Britain - both domestic and non-domestic - and its uses of energy. The UK Government is committed to reducing the country's carbon emissions to 20% of their present levels by 2050. A great part of this is to be achieved through greater efficiency and new low-carbon technologies in buildings (as well as through decarbonisation of the energy supply system).

Kadaster collects and registers administrative and spatial data on property and the rights involved (This also goes for ships, aircraft and telecom networks). Doing so, Kadaster protects legal certainty. We are also responsible for national mapping and maintenance of the national reference coordinate system. Furthermore, we are an advisory body for land-use issues and national spatial data infrastructures.
