TIMEPAC Academy hosts in-class training in local languages

- Published the

The TIMEPAC Academy will host free in-class training sessions for building professionals on the next generation of certification methods and tools needed to support the renovation of Europe’s building stock in multiple European cities throughout the months of May and June 2024.

After a well-attended series of online training webinars that took place in February and March, the TIMEPAC Academy will now be offering the opportunity for building experts to go deeper into the next generation of building certification methods and tools by hosting a series of in-class training sessions in local languages across several European cities. Here below the topics, cities and dates:

Barcelona, SPAIN- Language CA/ES

  •  07/09 May 2024, 9:30 to 14:00 CET
    Combining EPC databases with other sources for holistic assessment of the building stock. Using open data from EPCs in Catalonia as an example, we show how the integration of EPC databases with other sources allows for a comprehensive analysis of the built environment, including population statistics, renewable energy production, and public amenities.
  •  23/30 May 2024, 9:30 to 14:00 CET
    Advanced methods and tools for energy rehabilitation of buildings from a holistic perspective. Gain insights into using BIM models to generate EPCs for both new buildings and successive renovation stages throughout their lifespan. Practical cases will demonstrate the capabilities of available technologies.

Ljubljana, SLOVENIA – Language SL/EN

Zagreb, Croatia – Language HR/EN

Torino, ITALY – Language IT

  • 29/30 May 2024, 8:30 to 14:00 CET 
    Exploitation of EPC for local, regional and national energy planning. Explore the potential to use EPC databases to develop an archetype-based urban building energy model, as devised in the TIMEPAC project. The webinar offers comprehensive training in statistical analysis of the EPC database, with the goal of leveraging it for benchmarking initiatives.

Background

Europe’s building stock covers some 25 billion square meters of floor space, of which 75% is residential. Therefore, retrofitting plays a major role in achieving the climate targets set for 2050. The EU Green Deal and its Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) are crucial for tackling climate change and energy poverty by spurring a wave of building renovations.

TIMEPAC’s vision is fully aligned with the approach to Energy Performance Certification introduced in the latest revision of the EPBD. The EU funded project’s focus has been on enhancing energy certification processes, shifting from a single, static certification model to more comprehensive approaches that consider a wide-ranging management of data generated throughout the energy performance certification process and treating buildings as dynamic and integral components of a broader built environment.
