The European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) manages parts of the Horizon 2020 framework programme for research, innovation and market uptake (2014-2020), including for energy efficiency in the buildings sector. The Agency supports projects under this programme and ensures that their results are fed to policymaking teams within the European Commission.
The presentation will provide an overview of EU support for the development of BIM in the context of energy efficient buildings. The EU’s Horizon 2020 programme supports research, innovation and market uptake of energy efficiency solutions in the buildings sector. In recent years this EU grant funding has been directed at two aspects of BIM for energy efficient buildings: one the one hand the development and demonstration of new technologies and processes, and on the other the enhancement of energy efficiency skills among the building workforce. Current projects working in these two areas will be presented.
