ZEBRA2020 report

This report has been developed with two independent investigations:

  • a survey market analysis among real estate agents 
  • an assessment of a regression study on EPC price surpluses


Therefore, conclusions have been made in these two areas.

First area: the results of the real estate agent`s survey provides significant recommendations on how to increase the impact of EPCs on property values and how to overcome obstacles in the wider use of EPCs across the EU.

Second area:  the regression results on EPC price surpluses have demonstrated the existence of a price surplus due to energy efficiency in all but one of the countries analysed.


This analysis is tailor-made for market professionals, owners and tenants.
