The challenges to implement Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB) and achieving minimum shares of Renewable Energy are tremendous. There are various indications raising concerns regarding the reliability of Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) declarations and the quality of the works. Achieving a significant improvement requires strong commitment from authorities and other major players, as well as sufficiently broad societal support.

The QUALICHeCK Project responded to these challenges by:

The focus has been mainly (but not limited) on:

Close interaction was promoted with the Concerted Actions on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (RES) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), as well as BUILD UP Skills. The communication strategy supported both the broad dissemination of project outcomes and the constructive engagement of authorities and stakeholders.

The QUALICHeCK Project was completed on 2017.02.28 as planned. The QUALICHeCK Platform continues beyond the project’s duration; For further information, see www.qualicheck-platform.eu.
