Title: Building EQ

Building EQ was a project in the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission. Building EQ aimed at strengthening the implementation of the EPBD (Energy Performance of Buildings Directive) by linking the certification process with commissioning and the optimization of building performance.
Within the scope of the project methodologies and tools were developed that can be used for ongoing commissioning and optimization of non-residential buildings using gathered data from the certification process according to the EPBD. The emphasis was on feasibility and cost-effectiveness of energy reduction measures with regard to building-practice. Main target groups were the industry for facility and energy management, real estate owners, energy agencies and energy consultants.
