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.

Maximising the effectiveness and wider use of EU Energy Performance Certificates   The challenges around urban retrofit, in particular the ones faced by private dwellers have long been in debate at EU level.   How to foster energy retrofit activities? Can a dwelling energy performance certificate help? How to promote the information in the EPC and support the dweller’s retrofit decision process? What are the barriers hindering a dweller´s decision to adopt energy efficiency retrofit measures?

Europe has impressive ambitions for a nearly zero energy transformation of its housing stock. EPCs are key to realising those ambitions.   EPC databases/registers are now in place across most EU countries. These databases, coupled with advancements in ‘big data’ technology, statistical analysis and GIS mapping, have the power to transform our delivery of energy saving programmes. However, too often theses databases are left to gather dust and are not routinely used by policy makers and delivery bodies.

Governments and businesses are increasingly developing online tools to help householders understand the potential for energy efficiency improvements to their homes. Heating, insulation or renewable energy upgrades can be expensive and complicated – an effective home energy efficiency app or online tool makes big decisions easier and simpler for the householder. What’s the state of the art in online tools for home energy efficiency? And what’s the potential as technology develops?
