Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs)

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. The dialogue is moderated by the ePANACEA project partners.

The REB members will be involved in the definition of the energy assessment methodology, in its validation and evaluation, and in supporting local dissemination actions. This feedback loop will allow ePANACEA to develop an upgraded EPC methodology, suitable for national requirements of the stakeholders.

The Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) are organised based on their geographical location. In total, there will be five REBs established, in order to cover all EU Member States (EU27+Norway+UK).

Regional Exploitation Boards countries

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.



ePANACEA’s methodology, application and policy recommendations will be fully shared, discussed and demonstrated through the REBs. Member States will be able to adapt and use the ePANACEA approach on their own, taking advantage of the know-how shared in the REBs and of the project’s public deliverables. Therefore, REB members will benefit from the following:

  • Free participation in interesting networking events (physical or online) with other European key stakeholders and policy makers in the field of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
  • Possibility to actively shape an upgraded EPC methodology and include your national needs
  • Exclusive web-access to research results related to the EPC methodology development and bi-directional knowledge transfer
  • Gain a deep understanding of an innovative holistic methodology for a new generation of Energy Performance Assessment
  • Learn from the experiences in other countries
