This report proposes a first version of a database that could be implemented by French software editors to provide input data for the calculation of building energy performance.The proposed values correspond to typical equipment and construction products. They are not intended to be used for the energy performance calculation required by the regulation which should rely on the data of the actual products and equipments used.Data is proposed for boilers, heat pumps, solar thermal systems, ventilation systems, walls, insulation products, windows, doors.

Today, April 3, 2014, the GBPN launched a new interactive Policy Tool for Renovation. The tool compares and analyses twelve best practice renovation policies for residential buildings from Europe and the United States, using fourteen criteria that define a “state of the art” policy package. This new and detailed analysis of current best practice renovation policies supports decision makers to accelerate the design and implementation of more ambitious energy renovation policies.

The IEE-funded project Meshartility is helping 74 municipalities across 12 European countries to collect relevant energy data for the development of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs). Accessing detailed data on energy production and consumption in their territory is a crucial first step for Covenant signatories to identify which are the sectors where the energy transition efforts should be concentrated.

Better data is required to develop more energy efficient buildings. As the 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 into place monitoring systems to measure the progress of the various policy instruments.
This BUILD UP Web Seminar is an opportunity to:

Embed wants to create the largest and smartest repository for building and technology data from across the UK and the world. Upload your data for private use or make it public for partners and others to view.Embed allows you to:Discover and learn from real data from real buildings – Embed contains a wealth of data including publicly accessible programmes such as Retrofit for the Future. Embed allows you to learn from the process behind a project, view and analyse the performance data and allows you to make informed decisions.

The concept of "Geo-clusters" is highly relevant to stimulate the potential of energy efficient buildings across Europe. Geo-clusters are trans-national areas where strong similarities are found (i.e. climate, culture and behaviour, construction typologies, economy, energy price and policies and gross domestic product, …). The GE2O project aims at laying the foundations of such a process in Europe.

"If you can’t measure it .... you can't manage it" – this might be an old management saying, but it's one that Volker Stelzer would agree with. As a scientist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), Stelzer is responsible for developing recommendations for construction professionals from the many individual CONCERTO project experiences in the CONCERTO Premium meta-project.
