On this page you will find a summary table of EPB Standards by EPB Center.
The new set of Energy Performance of Buildings standards, developed by CEN under mandate M/480, provides a methodology to calculate overall energy performance of buildings supporting the EPBD. They provide EU Member States with a toolbox to help the implementation of the Directive and aim also at higher transparency regarding the energy performance calculation methodologies. Each EPB standard has a template for a national annex that enables Member States to tailor the methodology to the national situation.
The module “M1, Overarching EPB standards” comprises the EPB standards and accompanying technical reports that deal with the overall energy performance of the building.
The overarching EPB standards provide basic information needed in the standards covered by the other modules (M2 through M11), such as common terms and symbols or common choice of climatic conditions. And/or they provide procedures how to combine information from these other modules to aggregate into the overall energy performance data, such as the overall primary energy performance.
