Since the launch of the EU Renovation Wave in 2020, the European Commission has started a series of legislations’ revisions, including the Energy Performance of Building Directive. The proposals of the Commission tackle the EPC framework, alongside the introduction of mandatory minimum energy performance standards for existing buildings and the promotion of deep renovation.
In this context, the QualDeEPC partners organise a roundtable to present and discuss their draft policy recommendations with experts from the EU institutions and key stakeholders. These draft recommendations are based on the first inputs from the pilot buildings implementing the enhanced EPC schemes and the feedback received from consultations with national stakeholders.
Going from the design to their use by auditors and real estate, to the assessment methods, QualDeEPC is ready to propose improvements for EPC schemes that encourage deep renovation of buildings by suggesting actions to take to meet the deep energy renovation standards. These recommendations are adapted to the current EU policy context and will take into account the propositions of the Commission.
During the roundtable, invited participants are encouraged to discuss the policy recommendations as drafted by the consortium and exchange about their content and their implications on the ground.
