Advances in information and communication technologies offer the opportunity to improve the way energy profiling tools and techniques are used to measure and inform the energy performance of buildings throughout their lifecycle.

The exploitation of this potential was one of the goals of a completed EU FP7-funded project, entitled “IntUBE - Intelligent Use of Buildings’ Energy Information”. The overall aim of the project was to improve the energy performance of new and existing buildings via the intelligent use of buildings' energy information. The work conducted contributed to the development of virtual collaborative ‘life-cycle’ building tools to support energy efficient building design, operation and retrofit.
