European Display™ Campaign
The European Display™ Campaign is a voluntary scheme designed by energy experts from 20 European towns and cities. It is aimed at encouraging local authorities to publicly display the energy and environmental performances of their public buildings using the same energy label that is used for household appliances. The idea is to engage citizens and make them more conscious of their energy consumption in order to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions and achieve financial savings.
Greenbuildings, Improved Energy Efficiency for Non-Residencial Buildings
The GreenBuilding Programme (GBP) aims at improving the energy efficiency and expanding the integration of renewable energies in non-residential buildings in Europe. The programme addresses owners of non-residential buildings to realise cost-effective measures which enhance the energy efficiency of their buildings in one or more technical disciplines. The pilot phase is a project supported by the European Commission’s Intelligent Energy Europe Programme.
IMPACT has the objective to:
1. Test energy performance certification for existing buildings in practice in 6 country pilots
2. Exchange experiences and success factors
3. Derive recommendations for improvement of tools, certification schemes, training of experts and communication
4. Support the EPBD implementation process in 6 countries
5. Disseminate project results on a National and EU wide scale
The tests are conducted in: Denmark, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium and Spain.
