The Data Rush: towards an energy efficient Europe
Having the right set of data when designing or renovating a building can be the decisive variable for the success of the project. Easy-to-access,transparent and trust-worthy data is indeed useful for a range of actors. For the building manager, to ensure that a building is operated in the most energy efficient way possible,respecting the original design. For the building designers, to understand the actual performance of buildings and their technologies once they are operational. For the decision makers in the building sector, who require high-quality data in order to allocate resources to the most cost-efficient option. Last but not least, different other stakeholder groups, such as financial institutions, require information that can support informed decisions (i.e. green loans).
ExcEED and other similar project try to fill in the gaps.
