The ePANACEA project participated in the “Energy Efficient Buildings: Next Generation Energy Performance Certificates” event which took place on 28 September 2022 hybridly. María Fernández Boneta from CENER, coordinator of the project, represented the project in the panel discussion.

Next Generation Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) can empower people by becoming a nudging and decision-making tool. EPCs create an open dialogue with building professionals, thus allowing building  owners to understand complexities surrounding building renovations. In this event, the challenges and solutions of the changes foreseen in the proposal for a recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) relevant to local authorities were highlighted. The focus was on the role of EPCs in building renovation and how municipalities could turn them into powerful tools.
