The Energy Efficient Buildings Association (E2BA) is engaged in a public-private partnership (PPP) with the European Commission to foster the development and deployment of relevant technologies for Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB). Indeed many factors may limit impact and replicability of solutions for energy efficiency of buildings and districts. Gathering the points of view of key stakeholders in the value chain to interact with technology experts and construction practitioners will allow sharing lessons learnt and provide recommendations as guidelines for running and future research and innovation projects in order to maximize social and environmental impact, while minimizing time to market and pay-back time

The Network is coordinated by Aster and has been developed within the Emilia-Romagna regional strategic and innovative policies starting from 2002 with the aim to give thrust to the process of change within the local productive system.
