The building sector presents a considerable unexploited potential for cost-effective energy savings. Nearly Zero-Energy Building (NZEB) standards have become a mandatory requirement in Europe for new construction from 2020, however increasing the rate, depth, quality and effectiveness of building renovation remains a challenge since the current European average rate of renovation is only 1.2 % per year

My Europe in 2050 lets you choose how we will change the European "Machine" in the next decades. How we will move, live, eat and consume, how we will change the agriculture, transport, energy generation, building sector and production systems.   Explore how you can keep the machine's output below 30 gigatons of greenhouse gases. This is the budget available for Europe if we want to take a fair reduction share to keep the 1.5° C target formulated in the Paris Agreement.

Concept:   The achievement of the EU climate targets for 2030 will be facilitated by the widespread adoption of renewable energy. Hosting capacity can be reached through the market uptake of citizen energy communities (CEC).   The EU-funded LIGHTNESS project will increase the renewable energy capacity through social engagement, a regulatory roadmap, a low-cost technological package and innovative business models.

Concept:   The building sector is the single largest energy consumer in Europe. Within its 2030 climate and energy framework, the EU has committed to improving the energy performance of buildings.   Since three quarters of today’s buildings will still exist in 2050, the key to a low carbon building stock is to renovate.

Concept:   Innovation in interconnected systems design is crucial for reducing cost and complexity in multi-component computing platforms.   Current software development tools cannot fulfil the various antagonistic criteria in programming architecture. AMPERE’s model-driven engineering (MDE) framework addresses this challenge.
