The construction sector is crucial to EU environment and energy policies as buildings use 40 % of total EU energy consumption and generate 36% of greenhouse gases in Europe. While the replacement rate of existing stock is very small (1-2% per year), the construction sector is on the critical path to decarbonise the European economy by 2050.
The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) on Energy-efficient Buildings launched in December 2008 under the European Economic Recovery Plan managed to attract a high industrial participation and helped innovate the building sector. Under the new EU framework programme Horizon 2020, a contractual PPP on Energy-efficient Buildings will aim to develop affordable breakthrough technologies and solutions at building and district scale, facilitating the road towards future smart cities.
