Quickscan, developed by the Energy department of the Wallonia region as part of the BE REEL project is a new tool for raising awareness on energy performance of buildings. In just a few clics, and without the intervention of a professional, citizens can estimate the energy performance of a single-family residential building. The tool also provides recommendations for improving the building and achieving, at a minimum, the “PEB A” label, the 2050 objective for Wallonia.
The Quickscan tool will make it easier for the Walloon user to quickly assess the potential energy savings and housing quality without the intervenience of a professional.
BE REEL! allows the Walloon Region to collect data and to develop the content and operation of the tool.
On top of pilot actions aiming at a proof of concept for the newly developed policy instruments an tools in both regions (dossier global, quick scan tool, a redefined Energy Audit Procedure, housing passport, renovation advice) the Walloon region will work out a set of innovative business models made to measure for different segments of the housing market.
Especially the following segments of the housing market where existing instruments don’t lead to extra renovation activities, need specific instruments: the private rental market (especially single houses and flats, 20% of the total housing market), neighbourhood level and big apartment buildings with several co-owners (over 150.000).
