Communicate Your Buildings Energy Rating (CYBER DISPLAY)

Download PDFDownload PDF
The objective of CYBER Display was to show that the overall aim of the European Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), reducing the consumption of buildings in Europe, can significantly be accelerated if local authorities can stimulate behavioural change by communicating the performances of their buildings to politicians, technicians, building users, different municipal departments and the public. This was achieved by increasing the visibility and quality of local Communication Campaigns in Europe and analysing the effects they have on actual building performance improvements. Other municipalities will be provided with the information they need to start their own Communication Campaigns and invest in a future with better performing public buildings and, consequently less wastage of public funds. Cutting edge communication activities will be promoted via an annual award and the overall visibility of all these local campaigns will be provided by Display®, the European Buildings Climate Campaign!



Lessons learned

  • Strategically we have learnt that producing building energy certificates can have a vital ‘galvanising’ effect on municipalities who wish to improve the performance of their buildings.
  • From a pure project level with numerous municipal partners maybe it would have been better to have a list of common performance indicators for these partners. In the end the freedom for each partner to create their own local project made it very difficult to manage and monitor, and made it difficult to compare.
  • Having organised numerous events, although onerous in terms of booking rooms, chasing up attendees and speakers, ordering food and producing associated communications materials etc. have proved that even in this time of Facebook and Twitter, interaction on a human level is ultimately what will change attitudes to energy savings. Put simply, there will always be a need for people talking to one another and sharing their experiences.
