Innovative EPC Indicator

Smart Readiness

Smart technologies in buildings have the potential to contribute to increasing the energy efficiency of the building stock, to enhance the flexibility in smart energy grids, and to improve the comfort of building occupants. In order to increase the visibility and uptake of smart technologies in the European building stock, the introduction of a Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) for buildings is included as optional in the current recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). This indicator would allow to assess the level of smartness of a given building in a reliable and meaningful way for building owners, tenants and users.

A technical study, led by VITO and concluded in August 2018 investigates the scope, definition and calculation of the SRI, and performs a more detailed assessment of its potential impacts. X-tendo will evaluate potential pathways to integrate the SRI assessment as an integrated part of the EPC.
