Certified characteristics of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances are useful for product selection and users’ information needs. They also contribute to a fair competition between manufacturers. Certification of the energy performance parameters makes available trustworthy input data for the energy performance calculation of buildings.
What is certification?

iBROAD, the new Horizon 2020 project aiming to explore, design, develop and demonstrate the concept of individual Building Renovation ROADmaps, kicked off on 3-4 July 2017 in Athens, Greece.
These building renovation roadmaps will serve as a tool outlining deep step-by-step renovation plans with customised recommendations for individual buildings (iBROAD-Plan), combined with a repository of building-related information (logbook, iBROAD- Log).

How to get compliant and accessible data for the energy rating calculation of a building - Overview of some existing approaches
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of a building will only be able to serve its purpose if it is considered trustworthy while minimising the risk of non‐compliance of the actual building with the minimum energy performance requirements of the regulations. In doing so, two are the key parameters to be fulfilled:

EPBD directive 2002 and its recast 2010 have led to significant efforts in EU Member States to improve the energy performance of buildings. The compliance of energy performance assessments and quality of works are increasingly important aspects needing continuous attention and well developed procedures in order to be able to achieve stringent energy and indoor climate targets in practice.
