Analysis and visualisation of EPC data and development of innovative energy services

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 third of the six training webinanrs is titled "Analysis and visualisation of EPC data and development of innovative energy services" and will be held on Tuesday, 12 March 2024.

The upcoming recast of the EPBD includes various measures to facilitate targeted financing for investments in the residential building sector and to gradually introduce minimum energy performance standards for non-residential buildings. Their ultimate aim is to decarbonize the building stock by increasing renovation and improving building energy performance. Moreover, these initiatives should lead to increased reliability, quality, and digitalization of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), with energy performance classes being established based on common criteria.
In the context of the TIMEPAC project, EPCs are not perceived as mere paper-based documents; rather, they are envisioned as digital repositories of integrated information. However, the current EPCs predominantly cater for end-users, offering limited and often unreliable technical data. Consequently, the enhanced EPC should serve multiple functions, evolving into a central document accessible to various stakeholders, including end-users, energy certifiers, and local, regional, and national authorities. Thus, the next-generation energy certificate should be tailored to specific audiences and intended purposes.

In this webinar, we will delve into the analysis and visualization of EPC data and its utilization in the development of innovative energy services. Our objective is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness EPC data for the preparation of deep energy renovation projects. Additionally, the webinar will offer insights into monitoring and verifying energy savings, including the potential role of EPCs in this process.
