energy efficiency

EEPLIANT 3 stands for “Energy Efficiency compliant products” and it is a follow up of a series of older projects, EEPLIANT 1 and EEPLIANT 2, started in 2015. It focuses on the benefits of the energy efficiency regulation and on checking the level of compliance of energy products on the market. The innovative aspect of the project consists in dealing with both vertical and horizontal components of market surveillance of energy efficiency.

Deep disparities define today’s energy world. The dissonance between well-supplied oil markets and growing geopolitical tensions and uncertainties. The gap between the ever-higher amounts of greenhouse gas emissions being produced and the insufficiency of stated policies to curb those emissions in line with international climate targets. The gap between the promise of energy for all and the lack of electricity access for 850 million people around the world.

Europeans spend approximately 90 % of their time in buildings. Living indoors requires energy to maintain the right temperature, to cook and to use electrical appliances. In fact, energy is expected to guarantee a healthy and comfortable environment. Of all the sectors in Europe, the building sector consumes the most energy, and thus emits the most CO2. As a result, policymakers have made buildings a priority in the EU energy policy agenda.
