BPIE launches the first of its kind data hub for buildings performance in Europe
The comprehensive open data portal presents facts and figures collected in context of BPIE’s ‘Europe’s Buildings under the Microscope’ study released end of 2011. It includes a wide variety of technical data never collected EU-wide.
The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) launched today its data hub for buildings performance in Europe. The comprehensive open data portal presents facts and figures collected in context of BPIE’s ‘Europe’s Buildings under the Microscope’ study released end of 2011. It includes a wide variety of technical data never collected EU-wide.
The data hub has been created to assist policy makers at EU and Member State level, technical experts, building professionals, researchers, academics, consultants, NGOs and the broader energy efficiency in buildings community by giving them the possibility to access country profiles, search specific parameters, generate overviews and graphs as well as screen the underlying data. The tool allows for cross-country comparisons and cost free downloads. Only the access to the original data requires prior registration. Suggestions for data updates and corrections will be possible through online forms.
The BPIE data hub has the ambition to become an in-depth source for anyone interested in energy efficiency in European buildings. The data will be improved on an on-going basis and over time, the hub will get enriched with additional topics and information generated through data exchange projects and research partnerships. BPIE is inviting other relevant organisations to contribute their data and to join BPIE in increasing transparency about the energy performance of the European building stock.
The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) is a European not-for-profit think-do-tank, delivering policy analysis, advice and implementation support. Its focus lays on knowledge creation and dissemination in the field of energy performance in buildings. The Brussels-based institute, in operation since February 2010, is the European partner of the Global Buildings Performance Network.
