Buildings Performance Institute Europe

The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) is the leading independent centre of expertise on energy performance and climate adaptation of buildings. BPIE provides data-driven and actionable policy analysis, advice, and implementation support to decision-makers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Founded in 2010, BPIE combines expertise on energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies, health and the indoor environment with a deep understanding of EU policies and processes. A not-for-profit think-tank based in Brussels and Berlin, our mission is to make an affordable, climate-neutral built environment a reality in Europe and globally.

Role in Project

BPIE leads the Work Package on policy exploitation. Central to this work is to condense the evidence and lessons learned from the three Living Labs in Tartu, Pamplona, and Genk; package it in such a way that supports the implementation of the EU Renovation Wave strategy and triggers wide commercial adoption. Among other things, the work includes an analysis of the legal and financial frameworks which are needed to facilitate the roll-out of Positive Energy Neighbourhoods throughout Europe.
