Improve your knowledge on enhanced EPC workflows with the TIMEPAC factsheets

- Published the

To continue its mission of modernizing the energy certification process in line with the latest Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) review, TIMEPAC has produced a series of factsheets based on so called future “Transversal Deployment Scenarios”.

Each Transversal Deployment Scenario encompasses various stages of the EPC workflow (generation, storage, analysis, and exploitation), involving multiple stakeholders (research groups, energy agencies, ESCOS, etc.) and resources (data, tools, methods).

Through five future “Transversal Deployment Scenarios,” TIMEPAC enhances certification by integrating diverse data sources like operational data and renewable energy production. The project also merges energy performance certificates with other assessment instruments like the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) and sustainability metrics. The TIMEPAC focus includes improving EPC reliability using BIM technologies during renovations and utilizing EPC databases for decision-making in large-scale renovation programmes.

Check out the five factsheets below:

Generating enhanced EPCs with BIM data:  In this scenario, TIMEPAC has developed guidelines to assess the feasibility of generating EPCs from BIM models, ensuring their quality and fostering widespread adoption of BIM for this purpose.

Enhancing EPC schemas through operational data integration: In this scenario, TIMEPAC employed new methods and tools to enhance current EPC schemas through operational data integration

Creating building Renovation Passports from data repositories: In this scenario TIMEPAC created procedures to trace the evolution of building refurbishment. This involves utilizing different data sources such as BIM, EPC, energy audit reports, and operational data, among others.

Procedures and services for the integration of the SRI and environmental sustainability indicators in existing EPC tools: This scenario aims to link SRI and sustainability indicators with EPC. This involves determining information dependencies, creating an integration framework, evaluating feasibility within existing EPC schemes, exploring enhancement measures, and testing the framework with common data-collection methods for target audiences.

Procedures and services to undertake large-scale statistical analysis of EPCs databases: This scenario prioritizes enhancing data quality to enable energy balance assessments and informed decision-making for building refurbishment.
