(EU-funded) projects in which ANEC has been involved:

SmartLiving EPC

The aim of the Smart Living EPC project is to guarantee that the next generation of energy performance certification schemes will support the transition towards a net zero emission building stock by 2050. The project consortium will develop technical tools to enhance the quality of performance assessment and to link it to other instruments such as building logbooks. For example, it will also seek to explore synergies with other performance data generated over the building’s life cycle, such as well-being and indoor air quality data, and consumption of non-energy resources. 

ANEC participates in this consortium as the only consumer organisation. We will take part in the tasks relating to identification of user needs and to standardisation activity.

To tackle e-waste, the PROMPT Project (which stands for “Premature Obsolescence Multi-stakeholder Product Testing programme”), aims to push for products designed to last. The aim of the project is to develop an independent test assessing the lifetime of consumer products.

ANEC participates in this consortium of consumer groups, researchers and repair companies, leading the tasks relating to standardisation and coordinating dissemination of the results of the project to European standardisation organisations CEN-CENELEC and ETSI as well as at the international level to ISO and IEC.

Sixteen civil society organisations from across Europe came together to form MarketWatch. The alliance brought together consumer rights, product testing as well as communications, environment and efficiency expertise at a national and international level, with overall coordination managed by the UK’s Energy Saving Trust. The project was co-funded over a three year period  (2013 to 2016) by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union.

The main objective of the SAMNIC project was the development of an innovative tool called MOOC, intended to give training on safety of children’s products both to technical staff of this industry, especially in SMEs, and staff at consumer associations.
