The specialized blog in energy efficiency, ESEficiencia, has recently published an article about EN-TRACK, an EU-funded project coordinated by CIMNE in consortium with the Government of Catalonia (Department of Territory and Sustainability) and the Catalan Institute of Energy, among other partners. The project builds on an existing infrastructure and will enable massive data collection, making the data comparable and interoperable with other existing databases and data analytics. The lack of statistical data on the real energy and cost savings achieved with them is one of the great challenges in terms of energy efficiency, a problem that this project addresses head-on.
The article of ESEficiencia explains the consortium, the methodology of the project, the stakeholders, the results and the pilot projects. According the article, the forecasts are that EN-TRACK will contribute significantly to reaching the climate objectives of the European Union for 2030, since the building stock represents 40% of CO2 emissions.
