Database – EU Building Stock Observatory (GEN – 735.00)

16 December 2016

1 min read

GEN – 735.00. The European Commission has launched a new database on the EU’s building stock to monitor the energy performance of buildings across Europe. This Observatory has been designed to speed-up the EU’s clean energy transition and will be accompanied by the proposal for a revised Energy Performance of Buildings.

The EU Building Stock 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

The Observatory contains a database, a datamapper and factsheets.

The move aims to encourage the use of innovative and smart technologies to ensure that buildings operate efficiently and aims to boost renovation rates – which currently stand at just 1% of the total building stock.

Initially mainly the residential building stock is considered.

Of note is that the proposal for the revised Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) aims at a unified expression for the energy performance of buildings: kWh/(m².y). When adopted, this will require changes to the national or regional implementation of the EPBD that are not using this unit.
