Web workshop U-CERT | Building Energy Performance Certificates for the people

Share this Post:

Learn from U-CERT team, our guest keynote speaker, the 6 guest representatives of the Next Generation EPCertficates cluster of H2020 projects and take part in the interactive activities, led by IRI-UL, targeted at all 6 projects to try to understand what people on the ground actually think about EPCertificates and their value.


Building Energy Performance Certificates (EPCertificates, EPCs) are of the people, by the people, for the people… at least in theory!


  • Which and how did the initial intentions become reality after more than 10 years of having EPCs present in the national markets of EU’s Member States?
  • How are EPCs perceived by people in their different roles and technical knowledge e.g. experts, users?
  • What are the real needs & expectations and how to address them in the evolution process of EPCs?

Interested in the answers and attaining the latest insights about how diverse groups of people (from home owners, to EPCS scheme developers and all in between) relate to EPCertificates and how they would envision them evolving?
