Recording web workshop | Building EPCs: Convergent evolution?!

Can we walk the talk and go farther together (as opposed to fast alone) in the spirit of the EU’s principles, including subsidiarity, and facilitate a convergent evolution to a common building performance coherence framework?

U-CERT and EPB Center teams and our 6 guest representatives of the Next Generation EPCertficates H2020 cluster of projectsexchanged and identified the most sensible pathways to build forward together.




In a nutshell

Horizon 2020 project, September 2019 – August 2022

  • Introduce a next generation of user-centred Energy Performance Assessment and Certification Scheme to value buildings in a holistic and cost-effective manner supported by an EU-wide training and certification process for building professionals
  • Facilitate convergence of quality and reliability, using the EPB standards developed under the M/480 mandate, presenting the national and regional choices on a comparable basis
  • Encourage the development and application of holistic user-centred innovative solutions, including the Smart Readiness of Buildings (SRI)
  • Encourage and support end-users in decision making (e.g. on deep renovation), nudge for better purchasing and instil trust by making visible added (building) value, using EPC’s
  • Strengthening actual implementation of the EPBD by providing and applying insights from the perspective of all involved stakeholders, facilitated and empowered by the EPB Center
