The EU-funded project ExcEED collects data from new and energy efficient buildings (such as energy performance, CO2 emissions, etc.), gathered into a database.
Through the data collected, the platform will foster energy awareness and will build analysis of energy performances regarding existing buildings’ data.

For those involved in the energy management of a building or group of buildings, understanding the data collected can be a minefield. There are many different sources, formats, time series, as well as different platforms & logins. This often leads to mismanagement of data, failure to detect issues and lack of clarity across data.

The H2020 project ExcEED (European Energy Efficient building district Database) is funded by the European Commission and aims at collecting data coming from new, modern and energy efficient buildings (such as energy performance, CO2 emissions, etc.). The project answers the need for transparency and comparability of energy performance calculations.

A large part of the stock of Italian educational buildings have undertaken energy retrofit interventions, thanks to European funds allocated by complex technical-administrative calls. In these projects, the suggested retrofit strategies are often selected based on the common best practices (considering average energy savings) but are not supported by proper energy investigations.

The European Union has set out ambitions targets for energy efficiency and climate change over the coming decades. These targets have major implications for the construction sector, in terms of its overall resource efficiency and specifically the energy performance of buildings in accordance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (2018/844/EU).

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is the process of creating and managing information digitally across a building life-cycle. This information included in the model is not just the 3D geometrical data such as width, height, and depth, but “object oriented” and potentially comprises further dimensions such as time (4D), cost (5D), and operation (6D).

While focusing in energy efficiency of buildings, Build UP portal acknowledge the relevance of an integrated approach to the overarching goal of reducing environmental footprint of buildings. The rational and efficient use of materials and construction systems and the minimization of waste production from the construction sector are essential target areas with high potential of amelioration of critical indicators.
