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
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.
Report on the use of (cost-optimal) renovation business plans within EPC schemes In this report, ePANACEA reports on the integration of the cost-optimal methodology into energy performance assessment and certification schemes as a tool to evaluate the economic feasibility of integrated packages of business as usual technologies and smart novel technical solutions.


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.

Report on internal test and feedback of new EPC acceptance across the five pilot countries Assessing user-friendliness of proposals for a new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
User acceptance of new EPC summary pages Report on the outcome of the final acceptance test and impact assessment
from user perspective regarding the new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Recommendations for the design of the next generation of EPC Guidelines of psychological aspects regarding the EPC usage (display of multi-user
perspectives, recommendations for tailored communication measures)


Methodology development

Image Title Description Link
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.


Standardised computer file format suggestion for information exchange focused on weather servers and utility companies

 This ePANACEA outcome proposes two standardised computer file formats, one for weather data and another for energy use data, in order to allow information exchange for building energy simulations across the EU.

Demonstration and validation

Image Title Description Link
Compendium of Testing and Demonstration Board Meetings – Updated December 2021 This document is a compendium of background information about ePANACEA’s methodology, the composition and objectives of the various boards, as well as of the outcomes from the meetings established between members of ePANACEA’s Testing and Demonstration Board (TDB). Currently, the report includes the conclusions from the first (June 2020), second (February 2021) and third (October 2021) TDB meeting.
Demonstration activities plans of each pilot country The methodology developed within ePANACEA will be demonstrated and validated in five European pilot countries (Austria, Belgium, Finland, Greece, Spain) through 15 real case studies. This document contains a detailed description of the case study buildings in each of the ePANACEA pilot countries, and includes activity schedules, milestones and expected outcomes from testing and demonstrating the ePANACEA methodology.
Testing the ePANACEA methodology Reports on case studies validation results of each pilot country
Evaluation of the ePANACEA methodology Report on the evaluation of the ePANACEA energy assessment and certification methodology

Description of
current EPC related policy framework in
implementing countries
This report presents an overview of the current EPC policy and implementation frameworks in the implementing countries Austria (focus Styria), Belgium (focus Flanders), Germany, Greece, Finland and Spain, in relation to: environment, recommendations, end-user perception, technology uptake, energy assessment, and rating system
