The city of Genk and EnergyVille are launching the website https://genk.zetjewoningopdekaart.be. With this initiative, they join forces and take the next step in digital data management which will help shape the city’s future energy and housing policy.
Using Data to Transform our Homes
Request2Action is a programme across eight European countries. Our focus is on how data from Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) can be used to promote home energy efficiency. We are piloting new approaches to make EPC data useful for governments, private companies and individuals. Then, building from our pilot projects, we are creating national home energy data hubs.

In the spotlight
The Flemish hub is designed as a knowledge platform for stimulating policy makers and energy solutions service providers. The hub will collect and provide information on the situation of the building stock and the owners’ intention of renovation. These informations are key for the policy makers to enhance policy, incentives and subsidies programmes from the one side and to the refurbishment market on the other side. So far, this type of information is not available for these stakeholders.
The Greek pilot HUB is named “EnergyHUB for ALL” has been launched at the end of 2015 (see www.energyhubforall.eu/). It is a web platform which represents an interface between different stakeholders in the building sector, and serves as a market place to connect demand and supply side actors, as well as a meeting place and advice resource for refurbishment activities.
