Innovative Handling EPC Data

EPC Databases

An EPC database has different potential uses, such as data mining for country/sector reports, interoperability with other databases and publication of market-relevant information, to different stakeholders: building owners, construction companies, real estate actors, public authorities, etc. In this context, the quality assurance of the EPC databases can contribute significantly to improving trust in EPC data.

X-tendo develops routines for quality control of EPC databases and demonstrates how the analysis of these routines can contribute to improve the education process of energy auditors and consultants.

Introduction
  • Introductory report

    Brief report giving an overall evaluation of the feature and describing the basic concept, the methods behind, existing good practices and how to implement it.

Methodological approaches
Calculation procedures
  • Concrete implementation of new energy performance certificates features: testing and results in nine countries

    This report provides 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 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.

  • Tools and IT-components of the proposed calculation and data handling procedures tested in x-tendo

    This report describes the tools and IT-components of the proposed calculation and data handling procedures for the feature EPC databases. It provides a summary of the quality control methodology for EPCs in the Database, an explanation of the programming algorithm in Python language, that implements this methodology and the explanation to the repository link.

Recommendations for Implementation
  • Implementation guideline and replicability potential of the innovative feature for the next generation EPCs

    This report brings together the outputs of the evaluation of the test projects alongside the insight from end-users and stakeholders. It includes estimations of (1) the barriers and drivers for the wide uptake of the feature, (2) the effects of the wider implementation of the developed innovative feature of EPCs in Europe and (3) the necessary next steps in order to implement the innovative feature in the certification schemes around Europe.
