How to get compliant and accessible data for the energy rating calculation of a building - Overview of some existing approaches
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of a building will only be able to serve its purpose if it is considered trustworthy while minimising the risk of non‐compliance of the actual building with the minimum energy performance requirements of the regulations. In doing so, two are the key parameters to be fulfilled:
