CAMS Platform

Description

The negative impacts of climate change upon human and natural ecosystems can be minimised by substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. High energy consuming housing and production sectors still leave a major carbon footprint.

Energy efficiency measures such as renovation of buildings can address some of the vulnerabilities to climate change impacts and also counteract the increased energy demand, such as climate proofing buildings against extreme weather events using solar engineering, carbon neutral refurbishment materials, cool or green roofs; switching to distributed generation secures simultaneously climate change adaptation.

The aim of the CAMS platform is to learn from existing projects and facilitate, how energy efficiency measures could be co-used for increasing resilience of housing and services sector. CAMS platform develops macroregional database for energy audits, standardizes and verifies energy performance criteria for buildings and develops guidance on achieving synergy between climate change mitigation and adaptation. It improves energy efficiency measures by aligning research, recommendations, audits and investments from 11 projects across the Baltic Sea region.

In particular, the know-how comes from:
