We will align the assessment system with EU standardisation efforts.
This will be done in terms of energy performance calculation, energy auditing, energy performance contracting and valuation of energy related investments.
We will integrate the assessment system and its results into the existing public rating systems.
Our partners from Germany, Italy, France, and Austria will ensure this activity will be fully functional.
We will train energy and sustainability auditors on the new harmonized systems.
Across our partners we have access to a large network of ECP public managers and auditors qualified as assessors in Protocollo ITACA, 100 in KGA, 300 in BNB/BNK; 1000 in CSTB.
We will evaluate the public acceptance.
Through transnational surveys (AHH method and Delphi method) we will understand the applicability of the harmonized EPCs and passports.
We will test what we do.
That’s why we have case studies. About 100 very diverse buildings will be tested to make sure the EUB SuperHub methodology is fully functional and valid.
D1.1 - Quality, usability and visibility of energy and sustainability certificates in the real estate market
The current study facilitates the understanding of the differences, the challenges, the shortcomings, and the best practices of certification systems both mandatory EPCs and from the arena of sustainability/voluntary assessment schemes, should be regionally focused or international labels.

This deliverable discuss existing literature about the impact of energy efficiency and sustainability improvements on the value of buildings by increasing its actual value and through the impact on operational costs.
