The energy efficiency data hub is a new online tool developed by the European Agency for SMEs (EASME). With interactive maps, key data and statistics, this application features the energy efficiency projects co-funded under Horizon 2020 programme.
Several featured projects deal with buildings, such as the following EeB PPP projects: BERTIM, IMPRESS, InDeWag and MORE-CONNECT.
The application consists in 3 different modules:
•a dynamic map showing the beneficiaries of the programme;
•Beneficiaries and project lists;
With this application it is now possible to simply search and filter projects by topic (buildings, heating & cooling, industry…), country, project type, year (start or end date) and budget range. You can do this by clicking on the blue arrow on the left side of the map.
Besides this, each project has a summary that includes some information about the project, the participants and a link for their website. Statistics and figures are also available by clicking on the graphic icon on top left menu.
The application will be updated after each call.

Under the REFIT Programme (Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme), the European Commission has launched a Fitness Check of the construction sector aiming at assessing the impacts, both positive and negative, of EU legislation on the sector
The Fitness Check involves a comprehensive, evidence-based assessment of whether the current regulatory framework is proportionate and fit for purpose, and delivering as expected.
Specifically, it assesses the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added value of the legislative framework.
The Fitness Check focuses on 15 EU legislative texts in the policy fields of Internal Market, Energy Efficiency, Environment and Health & Safety. It analyses those provisions within these EU texts that may impact the construction sector.
In this context, an open public consultation has been launched to gather experience, views and opinions of interested stakeholders and the public on the impact of current EU legislation for the construction sector.
The consultation is open to all interested stakeholders and the public. Deadline is 20 June 2016.
You are invited to reply to the Open public consultation, please access it here.

The fifth edition of the EeB PPP Project Review has been published. This yearly publication presents the progress of 110 co-funded projects within the EeB PPP under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 and 17 new co-funded projects under the Horizon 2020 programme for 2014.
This new edition highlights current results and achieved or potential impact of the EeB PPP projects. The projects demonstrate scientific and technological excellence, across all levels, from early stage conception to demonstration of almost ready-to-market innovations. Distributed into 7 technology-clusters defined according to the construction-related research and innovation value chain from the EeB PPP Roadmap (Design, Technology Building Blocks, Advanced materials and nanotechnology, Construction process, Energy performance monitoring & management, ICT and BIM), they illustrate the diverse innovation approaches and the importance of embracing all aspects of the building and construction sectors.
