QualDeEPC discussed national and EU policy recommendations at the third round of national workshops. In May/June 2022, the consortium partners from Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Spain, and Sweden each hosted the third round of national workshops with the National Expert Fora (NEF). The main aim of this round of workshops was to gain feedback from experienced practitioners on the nationally adapted concepts of enhanced EPC schemes. The project’s EU policy recommendations for the recast of the EU Directive on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD) were also discussed. A variety of stakeholders, such as energy consultants and auditors, EPC-practitioners, policy makers, energy experts, and representatives from finance and economic sectors, energy agencies, building manager associations participated in the national workshops. During the workshops, several proposals and tools elaborated throughout the project were discussed. The objective behind is their potential introduction into processes and regulations for certification and energy renovation of buildings at national level and in the EPBD.
At the sixth partner meeting in Riga on June 27th/28th, the consortium partners reported on their na-
tional workshops and drew conclusions. Among them:
The results and expert opinions from the workshops will be incorporated into the further design and
final implementation of the QualDeEPC project. Identified priorities for improvement of existing EPC
schemes are implemented at the national level in cooperation with the responsible authorities as far
as possible, and additionally, they are to be made comparable at EU level.
In the Autumn of 2022, the consortium partners of QualDeEPC will host the fourth and last round of
national workshops. For more information and details on the contents of the upcoming workshops or upon interest of participating in such, please contact the responsible national partner or project coor-dination.
