The report Inclusion of New Buildings in Residential Building Typologies - Steps Towards NZEBs Exemplified for Different European Countries is a 2014 deliverable of the EPISCOPE project.   As it is expected, more than one quarter of the European 2050s building stock is still to be built. Consequently, the effective implementation of Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs) needs to be supported by providing guidance, common principles and quality checks of the concepts.

The European project EPISCOPE was launched in April 2013 as a follow-up of the TABULA project. The typology concepts and contents developed during TABULA form an integral part of the new project and are therefore presented at this joint website together with the new EPISCOPE focus of building stock monitoring.

The assessment of energy performances of buildings has been carried out by structuring a national catalogue of the existing buildings. Within the catalogue, a characteristic building typology for Serbia will be defined, together with the descriptions and characteristic elements of the building structures (construction, envelope, wall types, windows, ceilings, roofs, heating systems), and the energy performances of these elements.

This slide presentation from Siemens shows that different approaches are required to improve building energy efficiency according to the type of building. It emphasizes the need to focus more on non-residential buildings, which represent only 15-17% but account for more than 40% of energy consumption, therefore enabling fast penetration of building stock.

In the framework of the IEE-Project TABULA, a harmonized structure of European residential building typologies was created. A web-based tool provides access to this building data and allows calculation of the energy balances. The typologies can be compared between different countries with a simple and transparent reference procedure. In addition to the standard calculation, an adaptation to the typical level of measured consumption provides realistic assessments of energy costs and savings.
