EPC - Energy Performance Certificate

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Tuesday 28 June 2016, 11.00 – 12.20 Brussels time (CET)   Participation is free, but prior registration is required.   Introduction: Product databases provide validated information about the characteristics of construction products and building systems. They can be used to determine input data for the energy performance rating of buildings on their Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), provided that the procedures of the national regulation authorise this.   Objectives of the webinar

ENERFUND is a tool that will rate and score deep renovation opportunities – like a credit score used by banks to rate clients. The tool will be based on a methodology to be developed and on a set of parameters such as EPC data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, etc. By providing a rating for deep renovation opportunities – whether for private establishments or for public buildings – funding institutes can provide targeted loans, retrofit companies can identify sound opportunities and municipalities can promote targeted incentives and the public's trust for...

Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) was a three year project that looked to improve the energy efficiency of multi-occupancy apartment blocks by overcoming the barriers experienced during the retrofit process. The project ran from March 2013 to March 2016 and was funded by the EU’s Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme and local organisations in each country.

Low Energy Apartment Futures (LEAF) was a three year project that looked to improve the energy efficiency of multi-occupancy apartment blocks by overcoming the barriers experienced during the retrofit process. Retrofit of this type of building is essential to meet climate change targets and reduce fuel poverty as approximately 43% of Europeans live in flats[1]. However, this type of building is notoriously difficult to retrofit due to short-comings of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and the challenges of engaging multiple owners.

Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) are part of the energy transition promoted by the EU Commission with a view to achieve better efficiency in energy use, resulting in possible  substantial energy savings in a context of global external dependence of the EU for its energy supply. Government units, as owners of public buildings and constructions used in the context of different of functions, may be involved in energy performance contracts and contribute to energy savings.
