European Energy Performance of Properties Analysis

Supporting the development of an overarching European Energy Performance Certificate

The European Energy Performance of Performance of Properties (EEPPA) project is playing a crucial role in helping to improve the transparency and understanding of energy efficiency in European building stock. By analysing the technology, policies and market opportunities, the project is preparing the ground work for the creation of a unified European Energy Performance Certificate index.

Today, every EU member state involved has rolled out Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) that apply to both the sale and letting of properties. Without a single pan- European overarching Energy Performance Certificate, investment into large-scale international energy and carbon reduction building retrofit programmes is currently being hindered.

Having an overarching EPC index would help to increase the transparency and understanding of the energy efficiency of buildings across Europe and provide valuable market knowledge for investors and external stakeholders.
