Energy savings and energy efficient buildings are considered a key way for reduction of green house gas emissions, taking into consideration that in fact buildings are responsible for over 40% of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions. The construction sector is furthermore one of the largest in Europe and a major motor for its development. The EU Directive 2010/31/EC defines concrete goals for energy savings and for the use of renewable energies in buildings. Buildings in fact are responsible for over 40% of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions.
The EnEf project aims at designing training modules and contents to be delivered to entrepreneurs and managers of the building industry. These trainings will focus on energy efficiency in buildings. This project will contribute to cost effective energy efficiency, reduction of emissions bringing significant emissions reductions and cost savings to Member States.
