Dear all, This is a follow up on the previous blog post with the CEN work program to develop a second generation of CEN standards to support the (recast) EPBD. What was yet missing was a rough indication when to expect the products from this project. Therefore I drafted a short table with the main products and the rough dates for first and final drafts.

Updated: April 11, 2012dear all,There are several ways to present new information in the community. The easiest and most functional way is to write structured articles directly as pages under the community part of the Portal. Each article with title, content, chapters, paragraphs, etc.. But that option is not available in BUILDUP.

Dear members,The project to prepare the second generation of CEN standards, to support the recast EPBD, started a few months ago on the basis of a new mandate from the European Commission to CEN (M/480).Because of the wide interest in this project we, the community facilitators in consultation with the BUILDUP management team, have decided for the coming years to focus the information exchange in the community “EPBD calculation procedures” on the activities in this project.As a first step we adapted the title and description of the community to the new focus.

Aluminium is a very young metal, extracted for the first time in 1854. Commercially produced as a precious metal from 1886, its industrial production for civil applications only took off in the 1950’s. The first well-known application in buildings dates back to 1898, when the dome of San Gioacchino’s Church in Rome was clad in aluminium sheets. The stunning Art Deco-inspired Empire State Building in New York was the first building to use anodised aluminium components back in 1931.

While approaches vary, the goal is the same: increase the efficiency of the building stock by enabling the flow of information into the market and encouraging the market to price energy efficiency.
