AEROCOINs PROJECT Contributes to the E2B Project


The E2BA in partnership with the European Commission has launched a new publication, the E2B Project Review 2011. The Review will showcase current funded EeB PPP projects. The publication will be issue 1 of a biennial publication providing an overview and update of progress on EeB projects.

The Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB) Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the private sector to promote research on new methods and technologies to reduce
the energy footprint and CO2 emissions related to new and renovated buildings across Europe.

The Energy Efficient Buildings European Initiative (E2B EI) was set up by the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP) to help the construction industry address climate change, reach the European Commission-set 2020 targets and achieve energy-neutral buildings and districts by 2050. The construction industry is a large contributor to CO2 emissions, with buildings responsible for 40% of the total European energy consumption.

In close coordination, the European Commission’s Directorate Generals for Research and Innovation (DG RTD), Information Society and Media (DG INFSO) and Energy (DG ENER) are devoting €515 million under the 7th Framework Programme for Research, Technology Development and Demonstration (FP7) over the period 2010 to 2013. The projects presented in this brochure received FP7 funding under the FP7-2010-NMP-ENV-ENERGY-ICT-EeB call.
