    This paper presents selected results from three EU projects: AMBASSADOR, DESIGN4ENERGY and INDIGO. In these projects ICT-based approaches are being developed aiming at energy efficient buildings and districts. The projects are in different phases and they are focused on technologically different domains. In all of these projects ICT-technology is in key role allowing for energy efficient solutions. AMBASSADOR developed the District Energy Management and Information System where energy management algorithms aim at optimizing energy flows in a district. The solution was developed in a dedicated comprehensive simulation environment, before being deployed for validation as a cloud operated service. Various optimization approaches were tested to fit different business cases. DESIGN4ENERGY is focused on the building design stage with an aim to improve an integrated work-flow of the design team enabled by a new dynamic service platform. A set of new key performance indicators is used for evaluating the energy efficiency of buildings and neighbourhoods. INDIGO aims to develop more efficient, intelligent and cheaper generation systems for District Cooling (DC) by improving system planning, control and management.
