buildings and districtsLocal communities and cities play a crucial role in the energy transition. A large proportion of energy usage can be attributed to the urban landscape, and forms a significant challenge. Therefore, new buildings, renovation projects and even entire districts must conform to high energy standards. EnergyVille develops knowledge to support the European Commission, regional and local governments and industry in the transition to an energy efficient, low carbon and sustainable urban environment. We develop new technological insights, tools and assessment methods and we support new business models.

Building & district modelling

In the transition to a carbon-free future, a crucial role is reserved for local communities and cities. By 2050, half of the current building stock in Europe will still be in use. That is why optimizing the energy profile of our buildings and cities has become a top priority, with the right balance between energy efficiency, renewable energy and flexibility. Regardless of whether you are a public or private player, EnergyVille can support you in this transition. Our technological solutions are already being applied in over 55 urban test areas across Europe.

Building technology assessment

The energy efficiency, the building elements, the techniques and materials used are all decisive factors for the total energy consumption and the environmental impact of the buildings around us. EnergyVille offers support to make buildings, building materials, technical installations and renewable energy systems more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
