At this occasion, the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) will launch a new online data hub for buildings performance in Europe. The comprehensive open data portal presents facts and figures on a EU member state basis, which were collected in the context of BPIE’s “Europe’s Buildings under the Microscope” study. BPIE believes that robust analysis and effective policy making cannot be undertaken without such information. BPIE used the results of its survey to create the BPIE Data Hub for the Energy Performance of Buildings, providing free-of-charge statistical and policy information on Europe’s building stock.

For registration please email no later than Friday 26th October.  Please note places are limited and delegates will receive confirmation along with the final agenda and room details a week before the event.
