The aim of the CENSE project is to support the EU Member States and other target groups in the awareness and effective use of the European (CEN) standards related to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
These standards were successively published in the years 2007-2008 and are currently being implemented or planned to be implemented in many EU Member States. Sometimes “as such”, more often “in a practical way”.
Main activities in the project:
-To widely communicate the role, status and content of these standards; to provide guidance on the implementation;
-To collect comments and good practice examples aiming to remove obstacles;
-To prepare recommendations to CEN fo a second generation of standards to calculate the energy performance of buildings.

The website shows the relevance and importance of internationally harmonized calculation procedures, good practice examples, but also the current obstacles and limitations.
