[Webinar] Better data for better policy making: Unveiling the new Building Stock Observatory and delving into BuiltHub insights

This webinar will look at two key EU initiatives aiming to enhance buildings data for better policy design at EU and Member State level. 

The event has ended. The slides are available here and the recording below:

The final agreement on the Buildings Directive and its impending integration into national policies marks a pivotal moment for the enhancement of energy efficiency across the EU. Recent conversations within the BuiltHub project with local decision-makers have revealed a unanimous recognition of the critical need for robust data to direct energy efficiency measures effectively.

Join us as we unveil the newly launched EU Building Stock Observatory (BSO) – the Commission’s tool for EU and Member State building stock data and poised to play a pivotal role in the upcoming EPBD recast. Alongside, we will showcase the significant achievements of BuiltHub, which developed a roadmap to continuously enhance the buildings’ data thanks to a strong community of stakeholders. This event promises an interactive platform where the crucial topic of building stock data within the EU will take centre stage, highlighting two pivotal initiatives dedicated to enhancing buildings data for better policy design. 

With a new user interface offering advanced user experience, and an increased dataset with additional indicators and a higher level of detail, the BSO is ready to become the central data hub on European buildings. As for BuiltHub, it offers a more granular perspective by presenting data for sub-national regions or enabling comparative analyses of various indicators.

This webinar will be the opportunity to explore the synergies between these two projects, offering insights into their joint impact on shaping a more data-informed approach to building stock analysis and policymaking.
