This report provides an analyses of the gaps and shortcomings in the current EPC schemes in the QualDeEPC country partner and national priority approaches to their resolution. All partner countries have organized stakeholder workshops discussing potential options for enhancing the existing EPC schemes. The discussions were incorporated in the results.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC), regulated by the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), are an important instrument to enhance the market uptake of energy-efficient new buildings and the energy-efficient renovation of existing buildings. The Horizon2020 funded project QualDeEPC will work on EU-wide convergence of the building assessment and the issuance, design, and use of quality-enhanced EPCs as well as their recommendations for building renovation. The aim is to make these recommendations coherent with deep energy renovation towards a nearly-zero energy building stock by 2050.
