We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The European Commission has identified the lack of comprehensive and coherent data as a hamper to the design and the implementation of energy efficiency policies. There is a need for unbiased, comprehensive and robust data, as well as knowledge and information sharing at different levels.
The platform is a collaborative tool where experts can share data and build evidence-based knowledge to reinforce the energy efficiency community and support the European policy making. The JRC strives to ensure that data and information provided are consolidated and validated by peers.
The JRC provides the European Energy Efficiency Platform as the single entry point and a unique tool to facilitate the data collection and knowledge exchange, and to meet the needs of the online community of experts.
