Exploring the common framework for a modular energy performance assessment methodology

Image Title Description Link
ePANACEA Inventory of smart and novel technologies Report about inventory of smart and novel technologies This report describes the process to develop an inventory, containing novel, smart and innovative technologies which have an impact on the building energy performance.
ePANACEA D2.1 Report on the use of innovative certification schemes Report on the use of innovative certification schemes and their implementation This report on the use of innovative certification schemes aims to tackle current EPC challenges by proposing new features for implementation within existing schemes.
Guidelines on how
national EPC schemes
and SRI could be linked
In this report, ePANACEA investigates the possibilities for a successful implementation of a combined EPC-SRI approach.
Report on the use of
(energy) data within
EPC schemes
This document presents an inventory of data that can be used to supplement or replace the current energy performance certificate and explores the potential impact of the incorporation of this data.
Report on the current
status of national plans,
schemes and initiatives
on building renovation
passports
The objective of this report is to investigate how the current EPC schemes best make the link towards the BRP and the DBL to further incentivise and stimulate cost-effective deep energy renovations of buildings across Europe.

Exploring user perceptions

ePANACEA D3.1 Stakeholder Analysis Stakeholder analysis report This document contains the stakeholder analysis developed from the end user perspective within the ePANACEA project, in order to identify EPC end-users and other stakeholders who are more or less directly involved with EPCs and may influence end user behaviour and decision making in relation to the energy performance of their buildings.

Insights on user perceptions and needs regarding  the Energy Performance
Certificate (EPC)
This ePANACEA report presents the research findings from more stakeholder interviews and online workshops with end users and other stakeholders of the EPC. The report provides insights on study participants’ knowledge, perception and use of the EPC, as well as their critiques and needs regarding it. The collected critiques and needs from research participants address different levels of the EPC (implementation, generation and use of the EPC).
Fact sheet on energy
related behaviour
patterns in the context
of buildings

Seeking to increase our understanding of energy-related building occupant behaviour for a more accurate integration of the user dimension in the ePANACEA methodology, this factsheet defines energy-related user behaviour patterns.

 

Methodology development

Report on the selection
of the open-source
simulation tool
ePANACEA’s advanced dynamic simulation method for energy performance assessment requires a simulation tool which fulfills a number of requirements. This report describes the selection procedure for the most suitable simulation tool.
Report on the selection of advanced occupant models

Occupant behaviour is one of the most important factors contributing to the uncertainty of building energy performance. This work explores the possible implementation of advanced occupant models into the Assessment Method 3 developed under the ePANACEA methodology for the use of calibrated models based on dynamic simulation for Energy Performance Certification of buildings.

Demonstration and validation
