UPDATE 23/12/2013
The video recordings of this BUILD UP Web Seminar are available here.



Better data is required to develop more energy efficient buildings. As strategies for improving the energy performance of buildings become more complex, policy-makers need more and better data to design and evaluate policies and programmes and to put in place monitoring systems to measure the progress of the various policy instruments.


This BUILD UP Web Seminar is an opportunity to:

-learn more about building data and existing gaps in information;

-hear about the European Commission’s vision for gathering and harmonising building data across Europe.


We will look at the need for data for decision making (e.g. for EED and EPBD) and will highlight the available tools (e.g. national renovation plans, central EPC registers).


Join the discussion on building data transparency and the Linked Open Data concept.


Learn more from participants about how to make building data useful.
