A new energy performance certification
Most EU Member States have set up a central or regional Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) register to enhance the energy performance of buildings. The EPCs provide information to consumers on buildings they plan to purchase or rent and include an energy performance rating and recommendations for cost-effective improvements. The EU-funded D^2EPC project will develop the next generation of dynamic EPCs for buildings. It is based on the ‘digital twin’ concept to advance building information modelling and a new set of energy, environmental, financial and well-being indicators. According to the project, these indicators will ensure the EPCs are realistic and can accurately lead the transformation of Europe’s building stock into zero-energy buildings. The framework will be demonstrated at six different sites.
