Information on construction products is heavily regulated at European level by Regulation EC 305/2011 (Construction Products Regulation or CPR). Manufacturers are obliged by this law to declare the performance of most construction products according to the relevant harmonised standards. The CPR sets the framework for the common technical language which is detailed by the relevant harmonised product standard, until now in a written format. The common technical language of the harmonised standards does not yet include digitalisation.

The Horizon 2020 funded project Net-UBIEP (Network for Using BIM to Increase the Energy Buildings Performance) aims at increasing energy performance of buildings by wide spreading and strengthening the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), during the life cycle of the building. The use of BIM will allow to simulate the energy performance of the building using different materials and components, both to be used in the building design and/or in building design refurbishment.

Heat Pumps in near Zero Emission Buildings (nZEB) - in the new issue of the HPT Magazine!   Heat pumps is an excellent choice for low energy buildings! This is evidenced by the three projects (so called annexes) - within the Technology Collaboration Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT TCP) - that have been devoted to them, as well as the number of countries that have been participating in them. In the latest issue of HPT Magazine, we get an overview of the benefits of using heat pumps in low energy buildings.
