Concrete implementation of new energy performance certificates features: testing and results in nine countries

The focus of the Horizon 2020 project X-tendo is the further development of energy performance certificate (EPCs) schemes in EU Member States. After the analysis of the theoretical background and the development of materials and methods, the project is now testing the features in concrete implementation projects.

These reports provide the summary of the outcomes of the testing activities for each of the 10 features in one or several implementing countries. This is mainly based on the analysis of the evaluation questionnaires filled out by the X-tendo implementing partners, but also on the content of the testing results reports. The questionnaires hereby consist of general questions along the testing steps, questions on testing time and related costs, an evaluation against defined cross-cutting criteria (Quality and Reliability, User-friendliness, Economic feasibility, and Consistency with ISO/CEN standards) and final thoughts.

The reports should thus provide a summary of the outcomes of the testing activities on the features in different countries, provide conclusions for further development of the developed ideas and materials towards the end of the project and beyond, explain the practicability and challenges in the implementation of the features in practice, and give guidance for organising similar test projects in the future.

Each report first provides an introduction to the topic of the feature, the developed methodologies and materials and the performed testing activities. This is followed by the description of the testing results structured by the types of test projects. This includes a description of overall results, estimated time and costs and the different cross-cutting criteria. Finally, conclusions out of the testing activities are presented.
