Workshop: Designing the Perfect EPC – What works for you?

Don’t miss the chance to join this insightful workshop about Energy Performance Certificates!

The 20 March 2024 from 09:30 to 12:30 Brussels time

Currently, Energy Performance Certificates for buildings (EPCs) are being reviewed and revised to support more challenging carbon targets across European countries – hence the concept of “next-generation” EPCs that will support various areas of decision-making. 

The EU Horizon-funded crossCert project is attempting to contrast various assumptions associated with EPCs against the needs of different user groups. As part of this research, the team are carrying out a focus-group style online event to engage with those that need EPCs to make decisions on low-carbon buildings. 

The event, which takes place on Wednesday 20 March 2024, will ask participants, in small groups, to indicate what type of EPC (and related information) would be most useful for them (or their customers), understand whether current EPCs are meeting user requirements, and use this to guide design of future EPCs.

This online event will also include an overview of crossCert and the latest research being undertaken to create next-generation EPCs that create maximum impact for the user. The event will be of interest to anyone, across Europe, currently relying on EPCs to make informed decisions or are part of the EPC process itself. This includes: EPC assessors, those forming policy that use EPCs, building managers, large property owners, engineers, and designers/architects, homebuyers etc.
