The European Commission supports a wide range of research and development projects aiming at enhancing energy efficiency through the use of ICT.
Below you can find links to Collaboration spaces of the EE Buildings and Smart Cities:
eeRegio (Local and Regional Authorities)
Harnessing ICT for energy efficiency – opportunities for local, regional and national authorities; Good practice sharing.
eeCities (Smart Cities)
Engaging European and other International experts and stakeholders in real and virtual hearings and collaborative workshops on the continuous elaboration and assessment of the innovation strategy for Smart Cities.
ValMet (Validation and ee Measurement Methodologies)
Measuring the ICT sector’s enabling potential in a coherent way In order to better assess the energy savings potential of ICT solutions in buildings. A more harmonised way of measuring the energy savings in residential buildings and non-residential spaces would be helpful in order to come to a more meaningful quantification.
RTDRmap (RTD Roadmapping)
Bring together relevant stakeholders to identify and review the needs in terms of research and systems integration for eeBuildings. Promote the use and further development of ICT for improved energy efficiency of buildings
Semantic Interoperability of Energy Efficiency ICT Tools for eeBuildings and beyond. To facilitate an incremental investment of consumers in energy management systems a strong interoperability, close to the plug and play principle, is needed.
