EU-level expert workshop - Next generation Energy Performance Certificates and Deep Renovation
25th January 2021, 12.00 – 14.00 CET

The Horizon-2020 project QualDeEPC – Increasing the quality and cross-EU convergence of Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) schemes, and enhancing the link between EPCs and deep renovation – aims to improve the practical implementation of EPCs. This involves the assessment, issuance, design, and use of EPCs as well as their renovation recommendations, in Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, Latvia, Hungary, Spain and Sweden.
In November 2020 the QualDeEPC project published its Green Paper on Good Practice in EPC Assessment, Certification, and Use. This Green Paper provides analysis, policy proposals and draft descriptions of tools on the seven areas that the project has identified as its priorities for the development of enhanced EPC schemes that could be used in all EU Member States:

A) Improving the recommendations for renovation, which are provided on
the EPCs, towards deep energy renovation
B) Online tool for comparing EPC recommendations to deep energy
renovation recommendations
C) Creating Deep Renovation Network Platforms
D) Regular mandatory EPC assessor training on assessment and
recommendations required for certification/accreditation and registry
E) High user-friendliness of the EPC
F) Voluntary/mandatory advertising guidelines for EPCs
G) Improving compliance with the mandatory use of EPCs in real estate

In this EU-level workshop, QualDeEPC will present these proposals. Based on the inputs from the European Commission regarding the EU Renovation Wave and the draft proposals of QualDeEPC’s Green Paper, we wish to discuss with the expert panelists the question of what an enhanced EPC scheme has to look like to become a driver for the EU Renovation Wave, and what QualDeEPC’s proposals could contribute to it.
