Energy data is crucial for identifying trends in the economic priority sectors to target energy policies and to ensure energy efficiency improvements and increased renewable energy deployment. These measures can then be built in to sustainable energy policies and plans, and their national and local implementation progress can be monitored periodically. The Data Access Guidebook for Sustainable Energy Action Plans has been developed for: Public Authorities that are seeking better access to local

Automating heating and other environmental controls can bring huge savings to commercial buildings. To what extent is it possible to achieve the same results in residential homes? What is the difference between so called domotics and inmotics? Smart buildings appear to respond to a range of energy challenges found in Europe today. Improved efficiency would help consumers reduce income spent on energy consumption, reduce greenhouse emissions and also help EU countries meet the goals of the 2030 energy

Spending Smart Building to Smart City

smart building, smart city, Emmanuel François, Smart Building Alliance 21/02/17 09:58 http://www.construction21.org/france/articles/fr/spending-smart-building-to-smart-city.html Spending Smart Building to Smart City

Because the Smart Building is connected, it is turning into a platform for multiple services that help to enhance its value. Through its development, the Smart City is extending the continuum of services provided for the user (consum'actor) to the level of the territory. This mutation, based on the sharing economy, leads to the creation of new trades around these services. While energy, mobility and health care constitute the driving force, data is the key element, and its governance has become a

ʻPassive House for allʼ is the theme for the 21st International Passive House Conference in Vienna. It’s all about energy efficient construction now and in the future. Vienna has committed itself to the Passive House Standard for many years, whether for kindergartens, student dorms, apartment buildings or offices. The comprehensive conference programme will be rounded off with numerous workshops, a builder’s forum and excursions via bus and underground. The Passive House Conference with the accompanying

Cities in Europe are experimenting new ways to invest in energy transition and finance green measures at local level. Innovative financing models are becoming a priority because of lack of public funding The pioneering city of Stuttgart, Germany, was one the first to apply an innovative financing scheme back in 1995 and since then it has been bearing its fruit: energy-efficiency funding has reduced the city’s CO2 emissions by tens of thousands of tonnes. The scheme consists of setting up a revolving

Optimise Energy Management in Hotels

Did you know that 60% of your hotel’s carbon footprint comes from energy use? Not only that, but your bottom line is affected too: energy use is eating up 6-10% of your property’s revenues. It might not be your biggest operating cost – but it’s the one growing fastest! Besides, when it’s so easy to do a little hotel energy management, what hotelier wouldn’t want to save money on their next electricity bill? Plus, your customers actually want greener hotels – but they aren’t necessarily willing to

European countries are missing smart buildings opportunities

BPIE, smart buildings, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, report 16/02/17 14:39 http://www.construction21.org/articles/h/european-countries-are-missing-smart-buildings-opportunities.html European countries are missing smart buildings opportunities

An analysis by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) on the readiness of EU countries to transition to smart buildings concludes that no Member State is fully prepared to take advantage of the benefits that smart building technologies will entail. BPIE assesses aspects such as dynamic operability, energy-system responsiveness, renewable energy uptake as well as dynamic and self-learning control systems to judge how well prepared Europe is for an increasing share of smart buildings.
