The revised EPBD as approved last May 2018 includes this new SRI concept. The SRI intends to indicate how well the building systems for HVAC and other services are capable to interact with the local energy grid and energy storage capabilities. Storage of electric energy in (car)-batteries and other thermal storage capabilities as integral part of the building energy system. Buildings are to be considered as energy producers and energy users. At the same time our buildings and systems have to guaranty a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. The IEQ performance shall be an integral part of this SRI concept!
