BPIE has a multifaceted approach to achieving efficiency improvements in buildings, and promotes policy
support to further improve regulatory measures, financial incentives and market conditions that lead to the construction and retrofit of buildings with a high energy performance. The focus is on ensuring the vigorous implementation of the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) across EU Member States, as well as to enhance financing of deep energy renovation of the existing buildings. BPIE is focused on providing policy analysis, advice and support to better implement deep renovation measures of the existing EU building stock and to foster the transition towards nearly zero-energy buildings.
BPIE leads the work package dedicated to Stakeholders’ engagement (WP2), and contributes to the demonstration activities, especially in the activities involving the virtual pilots and the local stakeholders.
