High energy performance buildings under Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency

Share this Post:

The European Commission has published a report on high energy performing buildings, showcasing EU funded innovation and market uptake projects.


A total of 24 projects funded under the Energy Efficiency part of the Horizon 2020 programme are presented, addressing three priority areas: deep renovation of existing buildings, new Nearly Zero-energy Buildings, and smart buildings.


The EU’s buildings sector is one of the biggest energy consumers and therefore needs to develop and deploy more innovative solutions in order to enhance the building stock’s energy efficiency and help meet energy and climate policy targets. The projects shown in this publication represent a sample of those supported by the European Commission's Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) since 2014 under the Energy Efficiency part of the Horizon 2020 programme.


The results developed by these projects address key challenges at each stage of the value chain and help innovative solutions reach the market.
