A European Innovation Development Strategy Towards Energy-efficient Buildings


The key objective of the Energy-Efficient Buildings Association (E2BA), representing a large group of stakeholders
from the construction sector and associated technology sectors, is to promote the creation of an active industry
for the production, supply/distribution of advanced systems, solutions and added-value services with a view
to satisfying the need for energy efficiency in the built environment. The paper concentrates on presentation of
the new Roadmap recently prepared by the Association in cooperation with the EC, setting out the major RDI
challenges faced by the sector by 2020 to meet the EU carbon emission reduction targets.
