Register for Zero-Emission Buildings Academy webinar #7 held on 30/11/2023

ECTP invites you to the next webinar of the Zero-Emission Buildings Academy, launched in partnership with BPIE (Buildings Performance Institute Europe) and ECI (European Copper Institute): INTRODUCING THE NEW EU BUILDING STOCK OBSERVATORY.

Established in 2016, the EU Building Stock Observatory (BSO) is a web tool that monitors energy performance and decarbonisation-related buildings data for all EU countries. It now includes more reliable data for basic building stock indicators, higher quality data visualisations and a more user-friendly interface, which will be continuously updated and improved.

This revamp of the BSO encompasses an ambitious set of upgrades, with the aim of establishing the platform as the central hub for European building stock data. Notably, it will contribute to improving transparency on energy efficiency across the EU’s building stock under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. 

The platform update is focused on 2 overarching goals to improve EU buildings data:

  • ensuring the EU BSO is useful across the whole policy cycle from effective target-setting to implementation, enforcement monitoring and evaluation at both national and EU level
  • improving the platform’s user interface, making it easier to navigate for a wide range of potential end-users including policymakers, investors, financial institutions, construction and real estate industry stakeholders, energy providers, local authorities and researchers

With the implementation of the recast EPBD forthcoming, the BSO will therefore serve as the central hub for data on buildings. The relaunch of the BSO and ongoing development efforts of the tool are foundational to future success to monitor progress on decarbonisation in Europe and to track Member State EPBD compliance.

Join Guidehouse and Eurac, hosted by the Leonardo Energy’s Zero Emission Building Academy to learn about the BSO revamp effort – what has been done so far, and what is in store in the coming months for the BSO!

The webinar will be held online on November 30, from 14:00 to 15:00 CET.
