EUB SuperHub will elaborate a transnational link for buildings as a complementary document to the existing label/certificate issued by certification systems of the participating and supporting project partners. The Passport will report the value of transnational common performance indicators (KPIs), making possible to compare and aggregate the performance reached by buildings certified in different countries with different schemes. KPIs are to be intended as a common “denominator” among the certification schemes.

Passport will leverage new investments in energy efficient and sustainable buildings by ensuring trust, better quality and easier transnational comparability in Europe, and will be connected to existing national financial schemes for sustainable buildings like grants, subsidies, tax incentives and low interest loans.

The digital EuB SuperHub passport is collection of certification that represent the building performance in three main domains:

  • Local EPC and transnational EVCS values,
  • Sustainability (Level(s)) i.e, Life cycle cost LCC. life cycle assessment LCA, share or renewable energy, primary and final energy, GHG emissions, barrier-free, thermal comfort , hazardous material, indoor air quality and hygiene (VOCs)
  • Smartness (SRI) i.e, Energy savings and optimization, flexibility for the grid and storage, convince, user information, maintenance and fault prediction

The passport will show in each domain the value of the common transnational KPIs. The rating will always be given by national and regional rating systems and EPCs on the base of local priorities and context.

The objective of the proposed Passport is to allow the transnational comparison in absolute terms of the performance reached by each building.

The digital passports will be transparent, reliable, and user-friendly and provide accurate and valuable information for later renovation as well as end-of-life solutions. Aggregating this information, it will be possible to measure the progress toward the common transnational objectives (i.e. SDGs, CO2 emissions reduction, renovation uptake, etc.).
