ePANACEA is a project funded under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, aimed at developing generation energy performance assessment and certification for buildings. The vision is for ePANACEA to become a relevant instrument in the European energy transition through the building sector.
The ePANACEA project officially started on 1 June 2020, and its kick-off meeting took place on 22 & 23 June. During its 3 years duration, the ePANACEA project will develop a holistic methodology for energy performance assessment and certification of buildings, comprising the creation of a prototype –the Smart Energy Performance Assessment Platform– making use of the most advanced techniques in dynamic and automated simulation modelling, big data analysis and machine learning, inverse modelling, the estimation of potential energy savings, and financial viability check.
The project website is now live at https://epanacea.eu/
A relevant part of the project is to have a fluent dialogue with European policy makers, certification bodies, end-users and other stakeholders through two types of participatory actions: on the one hand a feedback loop with policy makers will be carried out through the so-called Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) covering EU-27+Norway+UK, while the dialogue with end-users will be established by means of specific thematic workshops.
If you are:
- A certification body in an EU Member State, Norway or the UK
- A national energy authority or agency in the EU
- Another type of organisation active in energy performance certification in the EU
