Energy Efficient Buildings: Next Generation Energy Performance Certificates

At our last event on 28 September, we invited the two speakers, Julien Dijol, Policy Director of Housing Europe, and Guillaume Joly, Senior Sustainable Buildings Officer of BEUC, to share their individual views on the next generation of energy performance certificates.

Julien Dijol presented the impact of energy performance certificates in different European countries such as France, the Netherlands and Germany at the CrossCert event "Energy Efficient Buildings: Next Generation Energy Performance Certificates", while Guillaume Joly focused on the consumers' point of view and explained what benefits a new type of energy certificates can bring to them.

These presentations were followed by a panel discussion with members of the Next Gen EPC Cluster, experts working on the next generation of EPCs, including Prof. Dave Jenkins from CrossCert.

3rd Steering Committee Meeting of CrossCert at the Climate Alliance International Conference in Luxembourg

On 28-29 September, CrossCert held its third steering meeting as part of the Climate Alliance International Conference to discuss project progress to date and coordinate efforts to achieve the next goals.

The CrossCert project consortium met in Luxembourg at the end of September, where each partner reported on their individual progress. Each partner had the opportunity to coordinate their efforts with the consortium and talk about possible obstacles to overcome.

U-CERT & X-tendo final conference: enhanced and future-proof EPCs

X-tendo and U-CERT are closing three years of research in the field of next generation building performance assessment and certification. Did you miss it?

This event, powered by BPIE & REHVA, was held physically in Brussels and livestreamed via the BuildUp Portal. 

There has been a buzz at Member State level around Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), and the underlying Energy Performance Assessment and Certification processes for roughly 10 years, but they have now received a pivotal role in the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) proposal submitted in December 2021 and implementation cornerstone for buildings to drastically and timely improve the performance of the European built environment. It is thus now time to act and implement to actually reach enhanced and future-proof energy performance certificates.  



Prof David Jenkins Joins the European Technical Committee CEN/TC 371 level on EPC Operational Rating

Prof. Jenkins is a leading voice in crossCert's work around the development of EPCs and is the Head of the Urban Energy Research Group at Heriot-Watt University.


He has a background in building physics and energy modelling (>100 papers, H=23) with recent work focussed on the application of statistical techniques for enriching understanding of energy demand data, and modelling, of buildings. He is PI of the CEDRI project, using a range of multi- disciplinary techniques to capture the relationship between occupants, buildings, and energy networks for energy demand reduction strategies in Indian communities, and also UK PI on the Horizon-funded crossCert project, investigating next-generation Energy Performance Certificates. He has been on advisory panels for Scottish and UK Government (energy building policy) and leads the Energy Efficiency in Buildings theme of the Scottish Energy Technology Partnership.


CEN/TC 371 ‘Energy performance of buildings’ is concerned with standardization related to the energy performance of buildings (EPB). The TC ensures the development, alignment and maintenance of a coherent set of standards for the determination of the EPB. It does so by (I) developing standards at overarching EPB level and by (II) coordinating the activities of related and specialized TCs that are responsible for the development of EPB standards within their scope, thereby ensuring harmonisation. CEN/TC 371 produced and maintains documents providing guidance and requirements to be met by EPB standards.

TIMEPAC-2022: Enhancing energy performance certification to drive the deep renovation of Europe’s building stock

Join building energy efficiency experts in Turin for the 2022 edition of the TIMEPAC workshop to learn about the latest developments in energy performance certification.


Politecnico di Torino is organising, in the frame of the EU funded TIMEPAC project, the TIMEPAC-2022 workshop on “Enhancing energy performance certification to drive the deep renovation of Europe’s building stock”, which will take place on 30th of November, 2022, at the Energy Center House  from 9am to 6pm CEST.


TIMEPAC-2022 will  provide a better understanding of the needs to work in line with the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, including the enhancement of energy performance certificates (EPC) with additional data, facilitating access to EPC repositories, and integrating BIM in the building renovation process with the aim to set up common methodologies and guidelines for the energy performance assessment in buildings which can be replicated in other Member States.

Deep Renovation of buildings: what Energy Performance Certificates can do!

[Sister project event] QualDeEPC Final Conference on 15 November from 12:00 to 17:00

There is room for energy savings in the buildings sector, mainly through the refurbishment of Europe's building stock. Among the measures introduced in the EU to promote energy savings is the energy performance certificate, which provides an incentive for buildings and owners to invest in energy efficiency improvements. In addition to improving the practical implementation of the assessment, issuing, design and use of energy performance certificates, QualDeEPC has focused on recommendations for comprehensive renovations.


All the progress made since the start of the project in 2019 has kept the deep renovation measures at its core. How can increasing the quality of EPC schemes accelerate the deep renovation of buildings? Join the final conference of QualDeEPC to discover the new EPC template, tools developed, and policy recommendations. On this occasion, participants will also meet representatives of the Next Gen EPCerts H2020 cluster which is the hub of the H2020 projects working on EPC.
