Concerto is a European Commission initiative within the European Research Framework Programme (FP6 and FP7) which aims to demonstrate that the optimisation of the building sector of whole communities is more efficient and cheaper than optimisation of each building individually. The EU initiative of DG Energy has co-funded 58 communities in 22 projects in 23 countries and started in 2005. The initiative offers now a new website full of information on the different projects.
