Advanced methods and tools for holistic energy renovation of buildings

The TIMEPAC project, funded by the European Union, is proud to announce the launch of the TIMEPAC Academy, an innovative learning platform designed to shape Europe's new energy performance landscape.

As we strive to meet ambitious climate targets and tackle energy poverty, the TIMEPAC Academy invites building experts across Europe to enhance their knowledge of certification methods, tools, and training necessary to support the renovation of Europe’s building stock. In alignment with the upcoming European Union’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), TIMEPAC is dedicated to fostering a comprehensive approach to building assessment and certification. The TIMEPAC Academy is a free learning platform committed to providing industry professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in evaluating and certifying building energy performance.

The inaugural series of six training webinars will cover a range of topics essential for professionals in the building sector to understand how building certification can be improved, and enhanced. These webinars are tailored for certifiers, energy auditors, architects, engineers, energy managers, facility managers, energy agencies, and local public authorities, offering insights into the latest developments in the EPBD and key energy-saving techniques.

The second of six training webinanrs is titled "Advanced methods and tools for holistic energy renovation of buildings" and will be held on March 5, 2024.

The upcoming EPBD recast recommends that architects and planners utilize 3D-based modelling and simulation technologies throughout the planning, design, construction, and renovation phases of residential areas to enhance and assess building energy performance. Integrating BIM models with simulation tools can improve the assessment of building performance and support renovation efforts.
These digital technologies are particularly beneficial for creating building renovation passports and digital building logbooks, while incorporating smart readiness indicators and life-cycle global warming in building performance simulations. Assessing building performance with these tools enables a more comprehensive evaluation over time and facilitates the transition from one-off certification to continuous performance assessment.
This webinar will offer insights into using BIM models to generate EPCs for both new buildings and successive renovation stages throughout their lifespan. Practical cases will demonstrate the capabilities of available technologies.
