EU Building Stock Observatory
The main objective of the EU Building Stock Observatory (BSO) is to provide transparent information on the EU’s building stock, to support the monitoring of current EU energy policies and measures and contribute to future policy making process.
The BSO is designed to include a database, a data mapper and factsheets providing interactive graphs and tables with data related to the EU building stock and energy consumption that can be visualised on-screen and downloaded for further use.
Ultimately, it will cover a broad range of energy-related topics and provide information on the building stock, energy consumption, building elements and technical building systems installed, energy performance certificates, nearly zero-energy buildings and renovation rates, but also areas like energy poverty and financing aspects.
The current version of the tool is a first step of a major revamping and covers only 3 domains:
- building stock
- renovation rates
- energy consumption
