EPBD.wise: Bringing European Building Policy to Life

EPBD.wise provides direct support to local authorities in six European countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Ukraine) to design and implement the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).

Coming just after the new deal on the revised EPBD reached by the European Union institutions, EPBD.wise will seize the opportunity to maximise the impact of Europe’s buildings policy to make our climate goals a reality.

Over the course of three years, project partners will work with public authorities (such as municipalities, energy agencies, etc.) in six European countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Ukraine) for the design, implementation and evaluation of key provisions to ensure our buildings are in line with our climate goals.

Starting with these six focus countries, EPBD.wise will:

  • Support authorities in the design, implementation and evaluation of new or strengthened measures in the EPBD revision, including the new zero-emission building standard, national building renovation plans, renovation passports, energy performance certificates, and minimum energy performance standards across Europe.
  • Build a replicable model to support the widespread implementation of these measures across Europe.
  • Develop guidelines on how to design new policies and instruments, measure their effectiveness (monitoring, reporting and policy evaluation) and adjust to EU and national needs and objectives.

EPBD.wise is an EU-funded project through the LIFE Programme and runs from 2023-2026.

The project is also working with partners in each of its focus countries:
