Webinar : INTRODUCING THE NEW EU BUILDING STOCK OBSERVATORY
This revamp of the BSO encompasses an ambitious set of upgrades, with the aim of establishing the platform as the central hub for European building stock data. Notably, it will contribute to improving transparency on energy efficiency across the EU’s building stock under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.
The platform update is focused on 2 overarching goals to improve EU buildings data:
- ensuring the EU BSO is useful across the whole policy cycle from effective target-setting to implementation, enforcement monitoring and evaluation at both national and EU level
- improving the platform’s user interface, making it easier to navigate for a wide range of potential end-users including policymakers, investors, financial institutions, construction and real estate industry stakeholders, energy providers, local authorities and researchers
With the implementation of the recast EPBD forthcoming, the BSO will therefore serve as the central hub for data on buildings. The relaunch of the BSO and ongoing development efforts of the tool are foundational to future success to monitor progress on decarbonisation in Europe and to track Member State EPBD compliance.
Led by partners Guidehouse, BPIE (Buildings Performance Institute Europe), EURAC Research, TU Wien and the Danish Energy Agency (DEA), in close coordination with DG ENER and DG DIGIT, the newly launched effort of the BSO is part of a wider development effort to ensure the BSO becomes Europe’s central hub for reliable data on buildings. The BSO development effort is funded through the European Commission’s LIFE programme, managed by CINEA (the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency).
Join Guidehouse and Eurac, hosted by the Leonardo Academy’s Zero Emission Building Academy to learn about the BSO revamp effort – what has been done so far, and what is in store in the coming months for the BSO!
