Cross-assessment and convergence of energy performance certification and building’s digitalisation

Data on energy performance of buildings are precious for accelerating the EU renovation wave. Considered as a first tool to trigger action, Energy Performance Certification has gained a lot of attention lately, with projects working on making their assessment and use more efficient, developing their data accessibility with intelligence, and exploring convergence among the different national EPC schemes. What can we take out from some of these projects?
