Baltic Energy Efficiency Network for the Building Stock


Energy Efficiency in the EU Building Stock


The building stock accounts for around 40 percent of the EU’s total final energy use, of which two thirds are consumed in the residential sector. Therefore, buildings offer the largest single potential for energy efficiency. The EU has responded to this fact with various initiatives and regulations.

The BEENetwork aims to illustrate the EU goals and activities in the field of energy efficient buildings. In this section you will be informed on relevant EU initiatives, programmes and projects related to the issue. Furthermore, relevant legislation will be depicted as well as publications dealing with energy efficiency in the European building stock.


The BEEN project is part-financed by the European Union (EU). Lead partner is the Berlin Government, Senate Department for Urban Development, Germany. The project is organized by the project coordinator:

- Housing Initiative for Eastern Europe (IWO) e.V.
- Initiative Wohnungswirtschaft Osteuropa (IWO) e.V.
