Through the presentations the workshop will highlight the challenges that are encountered when running projects or developing methods for integration of energy systems in our society, in particular the built environment.
Up to 40% of final energy consumption is in the residential and tertiary building sector and this sector has an important potential for energy reduction and hence a contribution to the reduction of GHG emissions in Europe.
The recent technologies for gathering and elaborating data have to be employed and could contribute importantly to the goal of improving energy usage: “doing more with less” energy.
The main objective of this workshop is to share experience in data collection and methodologies to support energy efficiency policies and scope a possible pilot to establish a harmonised approach supporting EPBD, EED and COM using INSPIRE as a ‘location’ framework.
The workshop is intended to cover the topics: energy, buildings, location, assessment method and data in relation to the European Directives on Energy Efficiency, Energy Performance of Buildings, INSPIRE and the Covenant of Mayors initiative. There will be presentations and discussions on selected studies from cities and EU projects on the topic of the development of a methodology for monitoring of public and non-public buildings energy related consumption data (e.g. electricity, gas, water and other) in order to gain expertise on data-collection and quality for the assessment of energy usage in buildings, urban and regional areas.
