In the 2050 EU Energy Strategy, the EU has set a long-term goal for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80-95% when compared to 1990 levels, in line with the efforts of the Paris Agreement to limit the temperature increase to 1.5° above pre-industrial levels. In order to achieve this ambitious goals, public authorities at all levels need the technical know-how and resources to develop long-term climate and energy actions.

Ten Priorities for the next European Commission to meet the EU’s 2030 targets and accelerate towards 2050
This report is on the fact that in 2018, the EU has decided upon a climate and energy framework up to 2030, involving clean, affordable and reliable energy system in Europe.
To that end, greenhouse gas emissions are to decline by at least 40 percent below 1990 levels, renewables are to deliver 32 percent of our energy and efficiency is to improve by even 32.5 percent.

The HEART toolkit incorporates different components and technologies, which cooperate to transform an existing building into a smart building.
In developing this toolkit, the project advances and improves energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies in buildings across Europe. Particularly in Central and Southern Europe where climate change is leading to increased electricity consumption both during summer and winter seasons.
How does HEART contribute?
