EU Building Stock Observatory available online
Together with the EU ‘Clean Energy for All package’, the European Commission launched in November 2016 the EU Building Stock Observatory. This tool monitors the energy performance of buildings across Europe. It assesses improvements in the energy efficiency of buildings and how this impacts the actual energy consumption of the buildings sector overall. The Observatory, managed by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE), provides a comprehensive snapshot of the building stock characteristics in EU28 and monitors the implementation of relevant EU Directives in Member States by presenting 250 indicators.
The Observatory tracks many different aspects, including:
- energy efficiency levels in buildings in individual EU countries and the EU as a whole
- different certification schemes and how they are implemented
- financing available for renovating buildings
- energy poverty levels across the EU.
