Making use of EPC databases for quality control and other purposes


The EPC database is a precondition for the implementation of an effective control system which is needed to ensure and enforce EPC compliance. Apart from running an effective control system, data from the EPC database can be used for decision making, e.g. in shaping policies and financing instruments. Also in this regard, data quality is of utmost important. In this webinar, Aleksandra Arcipowska (BPIE) will present an overview of the situation in Member States, while Hubert Despretz (Ademe, France) and Pär Johansson (Chalmers, Sweden) will give a presentation on the EPC database and control system in their countries. The last presentation by Michael Hanratty (IHER Energy Services Ltd, Ireland) will highlight an interesting approach on how make use of EPC data (with reference to EU-funded projects EPISCOPE and ENERFUND). The webinar will provide the opportunity to discuss with the presenters and learn from examples.
