  • D1.2: Next-generation EPC's user and stakeholder requirements & market needs

    Due date: 31/01/2021 - Task leader: CLEO

    Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are important instruments for the enhancement of the energy performance of buildings. Notwithstanding the positive contribution that current EPCs have had on improving the energy performance of buildings, experience has unveiled a number of constraints and limitations. There is a need for a holistic framework for strengthening and improving the quality and application of EPCs, by introducing novel and cost-effective approaches of assessing the energy performance of building envelope and systems. This report aims to identify current drawbacks of EPCs and future trends of the market and relevant stakeholders. The results of this research are anticipated to identify the needs and requirements for the successful implementation of next generation EPCs.
    The report followed two types of methodologies including desk research and field research. The desk research committed as a set of statements with questions relevant to challenging matters of (i), Efficiency of EPC methodologies, (ii) Potential EPC methodologies to overcome past drawbacks (iii) Efficiency of EPC data collection tools and procedures (iv), penalties and sanctions currently in force for EPC non-compliance (v) current EPC databases and access. The statements were answered with as a set of questions relevant to current and future challenging matters of EPCs. Concerning the field research, the circulation of two types of questionnaire was conducted according to the ‘Stakeholder identification and prioritization’ section to a list of stakeholders. The purpose of the field research was to identify current drawbacks and future trends of EPCs from the end-users and technical stakeholder’s perspective. The results of both desk and field research resulted to a set of challenges and recommendations for the next generation EPCs.
