To support the construction sector in Europe in their energy transition and taking the right decisions, EIT Climate-KIC presented the Building Market Brief Initiative during Climate Innovation Experience. (read more in this document in Dutch)

Get acquainted with the Building Market Brief Initiative

Two years ago, EIT Climate-KIC and partners began their mission to generate reliable and comparable data for a climate-neutral construction industry. They developed the methodology 'Building Stock Modeling' and collected harmonized and detailed data in building chains. After the Swiss prototype (2017), we now launch the reports for the Netherlands, Germany, England and France. Spain, Italy and Poland will follow before the end of this year.

For positive impact

With this initiative, EIT Climate-KIC and partners are responding to the sector's need for complete and transparent data in the chain, as well as comparable data between European countries. With analysis, new insights and feedback from experts, these reports are valuable sources of information that allow stakeholders to enter the future in a well-informed way. In this way we want to strengthen the sector and accelerate the energy transition.

Henk Visscher - Professor of Housing Quality and Process Innovation TU Delft and partner in the Building Market Brief Initiative - will  guided the delegates in the interactive work session 'Shaping the building sector 2030' on future developments in Dutch construction compared to, for example, Germany .

About EIT Climate-KIC

EIT Climate-KIC is a European community, consisting of industry, governments, knowledge institutes, start-ups and students working together on innovative solutions to tackle climate change through four themes: urban areas, agriculture, production systems and decision-making methods and finances. Education and entrepreneurship are at the heart of these themes. The goal is a CO2-neutral society that must be economically viable.
