This 6th webinar of the EPB standards series on BuildUp portal focused on the CEN standards related to heating and domestic hot water systems developed under the EC Mandate M/480 and published in 2017. On the long term, EU is pushing towards a change in energy carriers and technologies applied to provide comfort services in buildings.
Therefore, these new CEN standards are dealing with all available innovative technologies. Efficient technologies are quite sensitive to operating conditions, correct sizing and control options. These new CEN standards allow to calculate the yearly energy performance taking into account such influences and the energy calculation results can be leveraged to support the correct dimensioning of the heating systems.
The heating systems standards also include procedures to verify the energy performance by measurements. Economical calculations for cost effectiveness of energy performance update are also available in this package of standards.
The installation of new heating systems and the replacement or renovation of existing heating systems is an important part of the challenge for HVAC professionals to reach nearly zero energy (NZEB) level and will be an important contribution to the EU commitment to be CO2 neutral in 2050. The correct use of this new set of heating system standards will help to valorise the right decisions.
