ENERHAT (Energy Housing Assessment Tool) is an application that enables tenants, owners and real estate agents to obtain information on energy labels and the state of conservation of residential buildings, to compare the energy efficiency of the dwellings with similar buildings, to assess the investment needed to carry out improvements and finally to apply for subsidies to undertake the reform.

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with the aim to create more transparency about the energy performance of individual buildings. To date, the implementation of this instrument varies significantly across Europe in terms of scope, information, comparability and user-friendliness, limiting its acceptance by users as well as its market penetration.

Test Reference Years are detailed annual climate data rows used primarily in calculation and simulation programmes. They are in most cases not simply measured climate information of a real year at a certain location, but an artificial annual climate based on the interpolation of measurements of several (partly up to 30) years that can include maximum and minimum values that haven’t been measured in the very same year.

Every energy manager relies on energy data to make intelligent energy decisions, lower energy costs and increase energy productivity.
But it is important to consider that the quality of your energy decisions is directly dependent on the quality of the data you base them on.
Poor data quality can cost you and your clients through inaccurate billing, missed energy saving or retrofit opportunities and even lost energy efficiency projects.
