What is EN-TRACK?

Introduction

Data

Know your data – in order to improve, you need knowledge.

Standardization

Cross-European standardization of building related data.

Overview

One-point-entry for comparing data and making an informed decision.

EN-TRACK Horizon 2020

EN-TRACK launched November 2020 and is supported by the EU Horizon2020 with a 1.393 million € funding. The project will run for 36 months, ending in October 2023.

In 2020-2023 EN-TRACK will…

Directly involve over 35 financial institutions and 100 key stakeholders.

Buildings stock investment capacity of over 442M€ and trigger over 23M€ in energy efficiency investments.

Expects to be achieving annual savings of over 38GWh/yr and 17ktCO2eq/yr by the end of the project.


What problems are we trying to solve?

One of the principal challenges to increasing energy efficiency investments is the lack of statistical data on the actual energy and costs savings achieved with them. Data is still hard to access because it is decentralized and in different formats. Consequently, only a small part of this can be used to produce reliable empirical evidence on the performance of the energy efficiency investment.

EN-TRACK will meet this challenge by enabling an interoperable ecosystem of data and tools supporting building refurbishment decision making, putting it into practice with the financial sector.


We wish to enable and attract investments in energy efficiency refurbishment in the European building stock. This will make a significant contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions.


The EN-TRACK data process

The basic premise of EN-TRACK is that most of the information that is needed to make financing of energy efficiency a mainstream activity already exists. The problem is that it is inaccessible, badly organised or often simply unlocated.

The process is designed to make data input simpler, more attractive and cost-effective and to make the outputs more valuable by making them compatible with emerging market leader applications such as DEEP, eQuad and EnerInvest.
