The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) is dedicated to improving the energy performance of buildings across Europe, and thereby helping to reduce CO2 emissions from the energy used by buildings.
BPIE acts both as an international center of expertise on all aspects of energy efficiency and energy performance in European buildings, and as the European center for a global Best Practice Network created by ClimateWorks.
Our mission is to support the development of ambitious, yet pragmatic building-related policies and programs at EU and Member State level and to drive their timely and efficient implementation.
Our current work focuses on the key aspects of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD):
Definition of cost-optimal levels of minimum requirements (new and existing buildings)
Energy Performance Certification (EPC)
Nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB)
Financing large–scale retrofit
