In 2016, most EU legislation on buildings, including the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and the Renewable Energy Sources Directive (RED), are undergoing a review process. With this in mind, the European Commission decided to establish the European Union (EU) Building Stock Observatory to monitor buildings’ energy performance improvement and its impact on the actual energy consumption of the sector in the EU Member States.
The report sums up the work done in the scope of the Building Stock Observatory project from February 1, 2015 to June 31, 2016. It provides an overview on:
- In chapter 2, the methodological approach for establishing the indicators’ list (2.1), data collection and verification framework (2.2), approach for data gap management (2.3) and data validation (2.4);
- In chapter 3, the tools for communication and dissemination of results on the Building Stock Observatory website, including the database, Data Mapper and thematic as well as country factsheets;
- In chapter 4, the consortium summarises the project deliverables and the added value of the Building Stock Observatory.
