Making buildings fit for the energy transition – the next gen. EPC

As the Commission’s adoption of the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is approaching, an overview of the European Energy Performance Certification Schemes in place for a decade in the Member States is available. It provides both the outlook for a holistic and future-proof Building Performance Assessment and Certification framework and the related processes across the EU for the benefit of all stakeholders. It also supports the transition to an overarching digitally transformed EU building stock as means for healthy, affordable, efficient, and green buildings.

In this session, from 12:00 to 13:30, REHVABPIEFEDARENE and Sympraxis Team, hosted by the BuildUp Portal, bring together key actors from the Next Generation Energy Performance Certificates for buildings Horizon 2020 cluster of projects for a lively and informative panel discussion. Before it, the audience will enjoy 2 short ‘setting the scene’ keynotes from DG ENER and BPIE, with a slightly enhanced focus on the EU Member States and specifically decision-makers and influencers of the EPBD revision process.
