ENEA, jointly with the Construction Technologies Institute of the CNR, has made available the new version of DOCET, a simplified software tool for the certification of existing residential buildings, targeted at technicians and operators of the building sector. The software, to be used for buildings up to 200 m2 without major renovations, can draft the energy performance certificate (APE), which assesses the energy efficiency and energy class of a building and includes recommendations on how to best improve the energy efficiency of the property.
The most important innovation is the possibility of transmitting the APE to the information systems set up by the Regions thanks to an interchange file automatically generated by the software, which enables to transfer the certificates to the Information System on the Energy Performance Certificates at the national level (SIAPE), the databank set up by ENEA in order to implement all the energy performance certificates of buildings at the national level.
Since its first version in 2007, DOCET has proved to be an important tool available to experts and operators, thanks to its strong points such as reproducibility of analysis, easy-to-use graphic interface, high simplification of input data and a highly accurate calculation engine.
DOCET v.3.18.04.50 is downloadable at the following link http://www.docet.itc.cnr.it/.
