EN-TRACK: Energy Efficiency Performance-Tracking Platform for Benchmarking Savings and Investments in Buildings

Improving the energy efficiency, sustainability, and carbon footprint of buildings is a central objective within the EU’s climate and energy agenda. However, significant progress on buildings is being held back by numerous barriers, including a lack of reliable information on the energy performance of buildings, which creates uncertainty and risks for investors, building operators, asset managers and other key stakeholders. EN-TRACK seeks to address this information gap by creating a new platform with detailed data on the performance of thousands of public and private buildings in Europe. EN-TRACK will enable benchmarking and comparison not only of buildings’ energy performance, but also of the performance of energy efficiency measures, such as lighting or heating technology improvements, for example.


Building on previous and parallel efforts in this area, EN-TRACK will be fully interoperable with other databases and tools such as the De-risking Energy Efficiency Platform (DEEP) and eQuad. This will give EN-TRACK users access to a large ecosystem of data on buildings in a ‘one-stop-shop’ fashion, helping to increase investments in building energy efficiency.

The EN-TRACK platform aims to provide the following benefits:

  • Allow building owners and operators to compare and benchmark the energy performance of their building(s) against a large pool of other buildings across Europe. 
  • Enable lenders and other financial institution stakeholders to better navigate risks and improve investment decisions. 
  • Improve insights on the financial and energy performance of energy efficiency measures and technologies in buildings.
  • Provide a tool for policymakers to track improvements in building energy efficiency.

EN-TRACK unites 7 organizations from 5 countries – Spain, Bulgaria, Italy, Denmark and UK.
