Given the fact that the building sector is responsible for approximately 40% of the final energy demand and 36% of CO2 emissions in the EU, EU has proposed a set of directives and policy tools towards phasing out inefficient buildings
Moving towards this direction, D^2EPC aspires to set the grounds for the next generation dynamic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). More specifically, the D^2EPC digital platform designed and developed during the project, enables the issuance of next generation EPCs on a regular basis and allows for the building’s performance upgrade by providing more detailed recommendation to promote extensive renovation, forecasting of building operating conditions to better monitor energy use and issuing reports and notifications in case of inefficient operation that could lead to EPC downgrade.
The Information Technologies Institute (ITI) of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) is the project Coordinator and was responsible for the design and development of the buildings digital twin, the development of the digital platform and services and participates in pilot evaluation and assessment.
After 3 years of research and development, D^2EPC comes to an end and organizes together with the European projects E-Dyce και ePANACEA a final Conference to discuss "Next Generation Energy Performance Assessment, Rating, and Certification: Towards a Smart and Decarbonised Future for European Buildings".
The conference will be held on May 24, 2023 in Brussels.
