It has been an exciting journey around the several Energy Performance Certificate Systems in Europe, sharing experiences among partners on how to take the most out of the EPC information, to help home owners pursue energy retrofit activities in their homes.
The result was the development, and put into motion, of several Retrofit Action Hubs, web platforms that provide one stop shop for house owners to have guidance on the most adequate energy efficiency measures for their homes, the solutions available in the market and the professionals that can help them.
Retrofit action hubs, maximising the effectiveness and wider use of EU Energy Performance Certificates
The challenges around urban retrofit, in particular the ones faced by private dwellers as long been in debate at EU level.
How to foster energy retrofit activities? Can the dwelling energy performance certificate help? How to promote the information in the EPC and support the dweller’s retrofit decision process? What are the barriers hindering dwellers decision to adopt energy efficiency retrofit measures?
Eandis, Infrax and EnergyVille: together for a market uptake of energy renovation at residential buildings
Energy renovation of residential buildings takes a step forward in Flanders. Today, the two regional DSOs, Eandis and Infrax, announced the adoption of the City Portal within their BENOveren campaign. The City Portal is a web-tool which enables the DSOs to define tailor-made subsidies and promote collective renovations at a glance.
The ECEEE Summer Study is a biennial, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral conference who has developed into the most important energy efficiency event in Europe, offering a mix of quality peer-reviewed paper presentations, informal sessions set up by participants on the spot, inspiring keynotes and just plain round-the-clock networking.
The R2A project is almost over. The experiences gathered with the Retrofit Action Hubs are now available and provide helpful insight on how to promote retrofit activities in European cities. Check out the brand new video and hear what the R2A retrofit hubs can do for your community.
The city of Genk and EnergyVille are launching the website https://genk.zetjewoningopdekaart.be. With this initiative, they join forces and take the next step in digital data management which will help shape the city’s future energy and housing policy.
The Flemish hub is designed as a knowledge platform for stimulating policy makers and energy solutions service providers. The hub will collect and provide information on the situation of the building stock and the owners’ intention of renovation. These informations are key for the policy makers to enhance policy, incentives and subsidies programmes from the one side and to the refurbishment market on the other side. So far, this type of information is not available for these stakeholders.
The Greek pilot HUB is named “EnergyHUB for ALL” has been launched at the end of 2015 (see www.energyhubforall.eu/). It is a web platform which represents an interface between different stakeholders in the building sector, and serves as a market place to connect demand and supply side actors, as well as a meeting place and advice resource for refurbishment activities.
In the scope of WP3, about how to make data useful to stakeholders, two project partners presented preliminary results in two different frameworks.
