Closing the Data Gap for Decarbonisation Strategies

Assess building and property data to prioritise and plan investments

BuildingAgent

Housing companies often lack essential data

Energy consumption data, based on real physical characteristics of buildings, plays a major role in decision-making on energy-related refurbishment plans. Financial institutions also need solid figures to evaluate investment plans.

With climate action at the top of national and international political agendas, European housing providers urgently need this data in order to reduce the energy consumption of existing building stock. The European Union is putting a strong focus on green transitions and housing in the next programming period. The Green Deal, the Renovation Wave and Renovate Europe (Renovate to Recover) plans to offer a 1,8 trillion funding budget for Energy Renovation of buildings between 2021 and 2027.
