Ensuring the Energy Efficiency Directive is Fit for 55

2022-04-28T21:14:50+02:00April 28th, 2022|Categories: Articles, Uncategorized|

The proposals to reinforce the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) are currently being discussed by the EU Council and the European Parliament. This is the chance for the EED to drive energy efficiency policy into the 21st century, by using meter data to estimate energy savings and the piloting of pay-for-performance (P4P) support schemes. This briefing

Energy efficiency plays a key role in meeting future climate targets. Energy efficiency programmes, however, are still dominated by conventional interventions and mainly rely on subsidies that are paid upfront and are based on a predicted result. So, despite its many benefits, energy efficiency still faces barriers to achieving its full potential. In the scope

Scientific article: Data-driven methodology for the M&V of energy efficiency savings

2021-08-11T10:07:07+02:00August 11th, 2021|Categories: Articles, Own news, scientific papers, Uncategorized|

In this study, a novel data-driven methodology is proposed to measure and verify energy efficiency savings, with a special focus on commercial buildings and facilities. The presented approach involves building use characterization by analysing typical consumption profile patterns and studying the building’s weather dependency. The characterization is then used to design a model able to

The EU Green Deal sets the objective of a climate-neutral EU by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, the annual building renovation rate should at least double by 2030. The investments needed cannot come from the public sector alone and would require substantial private sector involvement. The European Commission has recognised the potential of
