CONCERTO Towards an integrated community energy policy to improve the quality of citizens' lives.
CONCERTO is a European Commission initiative within the European Research Framework Programme (FP6 and FP7) which aims to demonstrate that the optimisation of the building sector of whole communities is more efficient and cheaper than optimisation of each building individually.

The EU initiative of DG Energy has co-funded 58 communities in 22 projects in 23 countries and started in 2005.

CONCERTO demonstrates realised examples of:

• innovative technologies ready to be applied
• use of renewable energies sources for cities
• energy efficiency measures
• sustainable building and district development
• economic assessments
• affordable energy
• energy transparency for citizens

The CONCERTO initiative is proving that cities and communities can, given the right planning, be transformed into pioneers in the world of energy efficiency and sustainability.
