Webinar 3. Analysis and visualisation of EPC data and development of innovative energy services

The upcoming recast of the EPBD includes various measures to facilitate targeted financing for investments in the residential building sector and to gradually introduce minimum energy performance standards for non-residential buildings. Their ultimate aim is to decarbonize the building stock by increasing renovation and improving building energy performance. Moreover, these initiatives should lead to increased reliability, quality, and digitalization of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), with energy performance classes being established based on common criteria. 


In the context of the TIMEPAC project, EPCs are not perceived as mere paper-based documents; rather, they are envisioned as digital repositories of integrated information. However, the current EPCs predominantly cater for end-users, offering limited and often unreliable technical data. Consequently, the enhanced EPC should serve multiple functions, evolving into a central document accessible to various stakeholders, including end-users, energy certifiers, and local, regional, and national authorities. Thus, the next-generation energy certificate should be tailored to specific audiences and intended purposes. 


In this webinar, we will delve into the analysis and visualization of EPC data and its utilization in the development of innovative energy services. Our objective is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness EPC data for the preparation of deep energy renovation projects. Additionally, the webinar will offer insights into monitoring and verifying energy savings, including the potential role of EPCs in this process.

Key elements of BIM for analysis and visualization of EPC data


This session will demonstrate how Building Information Modelling (BIM) can enhance Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). It will highlight how BIM tools enable the analysis and visualization of EPC data, supporting the creation of innovative energy services and facilitating deep energy renovation projects. Additionally, it will explain the benefits of using BIM models for EPC generation, such as reducing errors and increasing efficiency and productivity.

Dynamic simulation of energy demand


Building owners often store data in various systems and formats, which can make gathering a comprehensive dataset challenging. Overcoming data accessibility issues requires collaboration with other stakeholders such as architects, engineers, auditors, and others, while also addressing privacy concerns. By combining different data sources, a more precise and comprehensive understanding of the building can be achieved, enabling the creation of a Building Energy Model (BEM) that result in more reliable EPCs. The focus of this session is to acquaint participants with the possibilities of dynamic energy modelling and dynamic simulation of energy demand using various software options.

Comparison of the modelled and real consumption data


The integration of operational data represents a logical progression in the future development of enhanced EPCs. This session provides an overview of the primary steps required to compare real and simulated energy consumption, calibrate a building energy model, and explore opportunities for using it to create potential energy-saving scenarios. Additionally, the concept of building energy model calibration will be discussed, alongside the presentation of existing methodologies, highlighting their advantages and disadvantages.

The concept of renovation passport


The renovation passport contains a renovation roadmap outlining a staged renovation plan over time. Compared with the EPC recommendations for improving energy performance, the main purpose of this instrument is to elaborate building specific improvement measures in the correct sequence, to prevent lock-in effects if a deep one-off renovation is not possible. The renovation roadmap can exist as a stand-alone document or as part of an enhanced EPC, when substituting the EPC recommendations. This session will provide explanations of the main elements of the renovation passport in relation to the EPC, focusing on complementary elements, such as information on energy bill savings, links to financing, and other aspects.

Identification of cost-optimal investments and creation of renovation scenarios


The energy renovation of existing buildings is crucial at the EU level, acknowledged in all National Energy and Climate Plans as a vital tool for achieving energy and climate objectives. Unfortunately, renovation projects often focus solely on a single retrofit measure, either due to the quick investment return it offers or the expiration of an element’s lifetime. This session will describe key concepts, methods, and planning tools for identifying and assessing cost-optimal investments, as well as for creating building renovation scenarios.

How to make an EPC a dynamic tool for verification of energy savings


The incorporation of new initiatives such as SRI or real energy consumption data into today's EPCs can bring about real opportunities to increase their reliability. Currently, EPCs in the EU are typically calculated based on standardized usage patterns, which allows for data comparability between buildings but may not accurately reflect real, metered consumption. This session will offer tips on integrating operational data with EPCs and utilizing it for verifying energy savings.

Reporting, monitoring and verification of energy savings


Measurement and Verification (M&V) is the process of planning, measuring, collecting and analysing data to verify and report energy savings within a facility or facilities resulting from implementing energy efficiency measures. This session will address how to define the baseline period, create a metering and monitoring plan, and select appropriate data verification procedures. Participants will also learn how these activities can be combined with the EPC generation process and the key elements of periodic M&V reports.
