Towards improved compliance and quality of the works for better performing buildings
Project website: http://qualicheck-platform.eu
Program type: IEE 2013 Call priority “Integrated Initiatives | Energy efficiency and renewable energy use in buildings | Tracking market transition”).
Project details: The challenges to implement Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB) and achieving minimum shares of Renewable Energy are tremendous. There are various indications raising concerns regarding the reliability of Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) declarations and the quality of the works.
Achieving a significant improvement requires strong commitment from authorities and other major players, as well as sufficiently broad societal support. QUALICHeCK responds to these challenges by:
- identifying issues in respect to existing procedures;
- highlighting best practices for easy access to reliable EPC input data, delivery of improved quality of the works, as well as more effective compliance frameworks (“lead people todo what they declare”);
- raising awareness and engaging relevant stakeholders.
