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.

Interoperability in the construction sector is a key issue and researchers, developers and designers have tackled since the introduction of CAD systems. Traditionally, engineers, architects and site operators interact and track their information exchange through paper or digitalized drawings and e-mails. With the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques and tools, operators are using new solutions and methods to keep track and exploit these data.

Solar heat is a key element for sustainable heating and cooling and plays an essential role in developing a carbon-neutral building stock, thus providing a fundamental contribution to the achievement of climate targets. Solar thermal technology has great potential to support a carbon-neutral economy as well as contribute to energy efficiency, flexibility through thermal energy storage, reliability and security of energy supply.

The EU, in light of the 2030 and 2050 energy and climate goals, has adopted an ambitious vision for the energy performance of its buildings among other measures. This is because the building sector still represents about 40% of energy consumption in the EU with the largest cost-effective savings potential. However, in order to meet this vision, the construction sector must be ready to deliver high-performance retrofits and nearly zero energy buildings. As in every field, this would require a number of qualified professionals and building workers.

The EU’s 2030 Framework for climate and energy sets a 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990, and at least a 32% share of renewable energy consumption, as EU-wide targets for 2030. For the power system, reducing greenhouse gas emissions implies greater electrification, i.e. a greater share of electricity in the total energy mix.
