This report sets energy performance indicators developed by EPISCOPE, enabling actors to ensure high quality energy refurbishments, compliance with regulation as well as to track and steer the refurbishment processes in a cost-efficient way and evaluate achieved energy savings. Recommendations include how to further improve data collection, design support measures and benchmark frontrunner concepts for nZEBs. The recommendations are highly relevant for the revision of the EPBD.

Este artículo comprende la historia de los diferentes tipos de construcción de España desde la perspectiva del detalle y la eficiencia energética, así como ejemplos concretos de  construcción por medio de fichas técnicas. Vamos a poder adentrarnos y conocer sus características, clasificación y variantes de los tipos de edificios y las técnicas constructivas de España gracias a un catálogo edificatorio que, a nuestro entender, dispone de un valor relevante para conocer las características de la construcción en España y su historia.

The tool allows users to view statistical data related to the energy performance of residential buildings. The tool shows the characteristics of the current state of the housing stock for 20 countries and the determined modernisation trends based on monitoring pilot actions of the energy refurbishment progress for 6 countries resulting from the EPISCOPE project. It allows comparing countries and provides policy information, such as the definitions for Nearly-Zero Energy Buildings. The tool displays detailed information on several aspects:

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 overall strategic objective of the EPISCOPE project of the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) is to make the energy refurbishment processes in the European housing sector transparent and effective. This will help to ensure that the climate protection targets will actually be attained and that corrective or enhancement actions can be taken in due time, if necessary.   The scope of the project includes:

This factsheet by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) summarises the current status of different approaches and indicators used by EU Member States (and Norway) for the definition of nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (nZEBs) for new and existing buildings. The factsheet highlights the link between the establishment of a definition and its gradual implementation and promotion on the market.
