The new dashboard monitors progress of buildings across the EU 27 Member States towards the 2050 net-zero GHG emissions goal with a focus on energy use in residential buildings (75% of the European buildings stock). It shows data since 2005 and will be regularly updated over the coming years. This should normally happen in January, when Eurostat publishes new energy data on energy efficiency. Policy indicators will be updated as new information becomes available.
Final energy consumption (FEC) data are the central parameter of this dashboard. They are closely linked to the EU’s energy efficiency target and the energy performance of buildings. Data on energy use are collected systematically, robust and regularly updated. The FEC data are complemented by a set of additional qualitative and quantitative indicators, which help to draw a detailed picture of the situation and progress on the ground.
The Dashboard was developed by Stefan Scheuer Consulting for the European Climate Foundation and first published in June 2021. Data visualisation by Maarten Lambrechts. Latest update: January 2022.
