In the framework of the European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan, the Implementation Working Group on Energy Efficiency in Buildings (IWG5) provides an overview of the European research and development of new materials and technologies for energy efficiency in buildings.
Around 40% of the final energy consumption in Europe is due to the building sector. This shows the great potential for energy savings and the enormous importance of this sector for CO2 reduction and climate protection. The Implementation Working Group (IWG) on Energy Efficiency in Buildings or IWG5 works to unlock the energy savings potential of the building sector. This includes boosting the potential of existing and new buildings.
In recent years, IWG5 members have also launched and supported hundreds of regional, national and EU-wide projects. Among them, RenoZEB is reported on the IWG5 website as ‘exemplary project’, able to opening up the renovation market for nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB).
