R&D for Energy Positive Building and Districts. Our aim
 Drastically decrease energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions in both new and existing
buildings providing comfortable and healthy environments for the citizens to work and live.
 This is achieved by fostering and engaging an active sector for the production, supply/distribution
of advanced systems, solutions and added value services in the design, construction and
operation phases.
 The aim is to satisfy the needs for the built environment, through the development and
deployment of a full Research, Development and Innovation program in those countries where we
are present.
R&D for Energy Positive Building and Districts. Our Capacities


Cooperative Research – EeB PPP
Benefits to research in a PPP scheme:
 Forum for discussion, networking and knowledge sharing.
 Exploring new business models and market mechanisms
with the supporting financial incentives
 Facilitating large scale demonstration
 Critical mass focused around one topic with clear vision and
challenge
 The main advantages for industry are:
 move faster as an industry
 public-private approach
Cooperative Research – EeB PPP
 The multiannual roadmap establishes a single framework that:
 Defines long term plan and common goals through the
roadmap
 Enables sustainable growth through an industry driven,
smart and inclusive plan
 Includes Member States input through their involvement in
consultations and the active engagement of E2B National
Liaison Points
 Facilitates collaboration across multiple sectors and up and
down the value chain
 Addresses challenges at building, district and city level
