Housing has been identified as one of the three areas of consumption (together with food and drink, and private transportation) that are responsible for 70-80% of the whole life-cycle impact of products. European buildings account for 40% of the EU's energy use, therefore improving their energy efficiency is one of the priorities of the EU Climate and Energy Policy. The needs in terms of Energy efficiency vary across the different climatic conditions in Europe, with a focus on efficient heating in cold climates and on efficiency in cooling in warm climates. Improving the overall energy efficiency of buildings involves both the development of materials and technologies for energy efficiency solutions as well as the support to overcome non-technological barriers to buildings renovation.

The Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) is helping the buildings sector to play its part in meeting the EU's climate and energy targets by supporting innovation in high energy performance buildings, promoting deep renovation, cost-effective nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB), highly efficient and recycled building materials, etc.
