Energy certification of residential sector

Teacher Hans De Keulenaer, Alejandro Morell

Description

Certification schemes have been defined as a policy to promote sustainability and energy efficiency in construction and renovation of buildings. Some of these schemes are voluntary but others are included in legislation of many countries (for example, as a result of the transposition into national law of Directives 2010/31/CE and 2002/91/EC on the energy performance of buildings).

This webinar introduces the procedures for mandatory energy certification of buildings in residential sector through examples of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) in different countries.

It will also analyze some voluntary certification schemes, as the LEED certificate defined by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) or the BREEAM standard by Building Research Establishment (BRE).
