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.



ePANACEA ensures the reliability of its methodology by employing recognised calculation procedures and software tools, covering the physics of the whole building as well as its internal environment.


Throughout its duration, ePANACEA will seek feedback from end-users, EPC experts, stakeholders and policy makers, in order to fully address the challenge of user-friendliness.


The ePANACEA methodology will be optimised from a cost-effectiveness perspective, including developments for automatisation and standardisation of data exchange.

smart dimension

ePANACEA will link EPC schemes with the Smart Readiness Indicator, while its methodology development will include the energy related impact of smart technologies at different levels.


Technological neutrality will be ensured by the inclusion of all aspects related to energy consumption in buildings (i.e. envelope and technical building systems).


The five Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) will include stakeholders and policy makers covering the EU-27+Norway+UK, allowing bi-directional knowledge transfer.


ePANACEA aims to develop a holistic and modular methodology mainly supported by automated and semi-automated procedures to carry out energy performance assessment of buildings.

measured data

The assessment methods developed within the ePANACEA methodology will take into account the increasing availability of real (measured) data related to energy consumption of buildings.


ePANACEA’s compliant approach includes the Directives on energy efficiency and energy performance in buildings, as well as the ISO/CEN standards developed under mandate M/480.


A relevant part of the ePANACEA project is to have a fluent dialogue with European policy makers, certification bodies, end-users and other stakeholders through two types of participatory actions: a feedback loop with policy makers to be carried out through the so called Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) covering EU-27+Norway+UK, while a dialogue with end-users will be established by means of specific thematic workshops.

The Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) represent an important pillar of ePANACEA. The project aims to establish a fluent dialogue with different European stakeholders with special focus on national/regional policy makers and certification bodies, which are directly involved in the implementation of the different EPC schemes and are responsible for energy regulations development in their own regions/countries. Therefore, the REBs are composed of these important regional European stakeholders, as well as consumer associations, building products manufacture associations, professional associations, etc.

31 European institutions expressed their commitment already at the proposal stage. During the project’s progress, more institutions will be brought onboard by the REB leaders.
