Greater temporal resolution of energy performance is an idea whose time has come
Energy performance certification (EPC) has never been more important. The time has come to enhance the time scale on which the data are evaluated. EPC provides information to consumers about the energy performance rating of a building they are interested in renting or buying, and it is also intended to suggest cost-effective ways to improve energy performance. It is provided to the EU along with inspection reports to enhance understanding and support the creation of EU policy that contributes to the improvement of overall building performance. The EU-funded E-DYCE project is developing a methodology for dynamic EPC intended to replace or be used in conjunction with the current static or steady-state methodology. It will consider the temporal nuances of energy use on scales of minutes, hours and days rather than annual averages, providing better opportunities to suggest more effective energy-efficient behaviours to consumers.
