Abstract: The Exploratory Project EREBILAND (European Regional Energy Balance and Innovation Landscape) aims at supporting efficient patterns of regional energy supply and demand in Europe. Integration of spatial scales, from EU-wide to regional or local, and a cross-sector approach, are at the core of the project. Energy targets are set at European level, but their realisation requires an implementation strategy that is tailored at EU Member States and regional level. National and regional specificities have to be taken on board when defining the priority of intervention for different sectors, from restructuring the energy sector to setting up efficiency targets for different categories of energy users. The purpose of the EREBILAND project is to: • provide an overview of the current trends of regional energy production and consumption patterns, and • link these patterns to the structural characteristics of the regions, among which: population density and urbanisation trends, development of different economic sectors, and availability of resources and technological infrastructure. Energy spent in buildings represents a large share of the overall energy consumption in the EU-28 (40% of total final energy consumption and around 55% of electricity consumption in 2012). The consumption depends on the functional and structural characteristics of buildings. It is also influenced by other factors such as location and climate. This document describes a methodological approach developed as part of the EREBILAND project to estimate the energy demand of buildings at the local scale. It also provides and update on datasets compiled as part of the project and presents provisional results for two regional case-studies in Italy and the Netherlands.
