ePANACEA IN BRIEF

NEXT GENERATION
BUILDING ENERGY RATING

After 10 years of track record, the current Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) schemes across the EU face several challenges which have led to not fully accomplish their initial objectives: lack of accuracy, a gap between theoretical and real consumption patterns, absence of proper protocols for inclusion of smart and novel technologies, little convergence across EU schemes, lack of trust in the market and very little user awareness related to energy efficiency.

The objective of the ePANACEA project is to develop a holistic methodology for energy performance assessment and certification of buildings that can overcome the above mentioned challenges. The vision is ePANACEA becoming a relevant instrument in the European energy transition through the building sector.

ePANACEA comprises the creation of a prototype (the Smart Energy Performance Assessment Platform) making use of the most advanced techniques in dynamic and automated simulation modelling, big data analysis and machine learning, inverse modelling or the estimation of potential energy savings and economic viability check.

OBJECTIVE 1
OBJECTIVE 1
To demonstrate the potential for improvement of the effectiveness of energy performance assessments and EPCs.
OBJECTIVE 2
OBJECTIVE 2
To generate trust in the market, in order to contribute to trigger investments in the energy efficient buildings.
OBJECTIVE 3
OBJECTIVE 3
To disseminate the new EPC methodology to EU member states and facilitate its wide exploitation for energy efficiency.
OBJECTIVE 4
OBJECTIVE 4
To develop a standardised data format, enabling the exchange of building data related to the EPC framework.
