Pioneering a performance-based future for energy efficiency!

2022-01-31T14:29:08+01:00January 31st, 2022|Categories: Articles, scientific papers, Uncategorized|

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

Boosting the Renovation Wave with Pay-for-Performance Schemes

2021-06-28T10:03:26+02:00June 28th, 2021|Categories: Uncategorized|

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

Investigating how building policies facilitate the development of P4P schemes

2021-05-05T11:50:48+02:00May 5th, 2021|Categories: Own news|

How can building policies facilitate the development of performance-based energy efficiency programmes, like Pay-for-Performance (P4P) schemes, in the EU? SENSEI has launched a survey to help P4P schemes’ replicability in Europe. This survey supports SENSEI in identifying how policy and regulatory developments in the EU may become a risk or an opportunity for P4P schemes,

No more uncertainties – measuring retrofit performance across portfolios of buildings

2021-04-21T08:47:51+02:00April 20th, 2021|Categories: Press releases|

Ground breaking tool measures energy savings across portfolios of buildings, which could be used to replace inaccurate ‘deemed’ estimates of energy savings, creating a foundation for energy companies to contract for energy savings instead of fossil fuels. A next generation energy efficiency meter named eensight has been created. The eensight tool is based
