Buildings data and tools

BPIE contributes, and has contributed, to the development of several tools within the framework of EU-funded projects and more.

BPIE began collecting facts and figures on the European building stock in 2010 in the context of preparing its major study Europe’s Buildings under the Microscope, released in 2011.

In 2012, the information gathered was made available on BPIE’s open data portal, the Data Hub, including technical data on building performance never before collected EU-wide. The platform offered country statistics on buildings, information about policies and access to information sources provided by partner organisations, and fed into research and legislation.

The Data Hub’s wealth of information and model were used as a basis to design the EU Building Stock Observatory, a 2016 EU-funded project led by BPIE with ECN, Ecofys, Enerdata and SEVEn and many data partners. The tool monitors policy implementation in the EU MSs and presents country-specific data with 250 indicators.

We invite other organisations to contribute with their data and to support BPIE’s effort to increase transparency and knowledge about the energy performance of the European building stock.
