Towards an energy efficient European housing stock - mapping, modelling and monitoring refurbishment processes

Start/Stop Date:

Focus Areas:
Energy efficient housing stock
Type of Event:

Making the energy-refurbishment processes in the European housing sector transparent and effective is a crucial step towards achieving the EU’s climate mitigation targets.

In this context, building stock models to assess refurbishment processes and plan future energy consumption are important to monitor progress on national and European level. Scenario analyses were conducted in 16 European countries to track the implementation of energy saving measures and their impact on consumption in practice. These findings can feed into the development of policies and steer refurbishment practices in a cost-efficient way while the modelling can evaluate the actual achieved energy savings.

The lessons learnt and best practice cases shared will ultimately support a long-term objective to install monitoring procedures in each European country in different fields: energy performance certificate databases, representative surveys, regional or national census, heating or energy bills, strategic asset development, energy management and more.

Leading experts and representatives from the European Commission will discuss during this workshop: methods of building stock monitoring, scenario analyses of trends and perspectives of energy performance, and CO2 emissions. The discussion will also highlight the necessary supporting policy actions.

The workshop is organised within the framework of the EU-funded project EPISCOPE.
