EPCs (Energy Performance Certificates) are important tools to identify the performance of the building. In many countries, it is compulsory to have EPCs while selling, renting, or constructing a building or a part of it. This research thesis under the shelter of the TIMEPAC project aims to broaden the array of the energy performance indicators within the Energy Performance Certificate. It aims to underscore a holistic approach to assessing the building’s overall performance. There are several Transversal Deployment Scenarios such as generation, storage, analysis, and exploitation that are included in the stages of EPC workflow. This research thesis aims to perform an energy audit in a residential building in Torino with possibilities to implement energy efficiency measures for the upgradation of energy classification in Energy Performance Certificates. The expected deliverables of the research work can be IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) Assessment, BACS (Building Automation and Control) Assessment, TEPA (Tailored Energy Performance Assessment), and ECM (Economic Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Measures). The data obtained from the model simulated on Edilclima software will be calibrated with the measured data every week. The outcomes are expected to be stored in the database of TIMEPAC and later analyzed to define the problems, risk factors, and obstacles in the way of Energy Performance Certificates. Also, the standards define the limits of calibrating on an hourly or yearly basis but this thesis aims to find if these limits can be used weekly or not. This project is currently underway in Turin, Italy, in collaboration with TIMEPAC. Italian standards will serve as the foundation for the structuring and verification of the project. The improvement of the EPCs is an iterative process that will keep on improving with the collection and analysis of more of data from different regions.
