Educational Material EPBD

The main objective of this project was the preparation of educational materials concerning the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings 2002 (EPBD).

The Energy Agency Styria, former LandesEnergieVerein Steiermark, was responsible for the project coordination and the preparation of some materials. The educational documents were divided into the following topics:

  • Legal requirements and regulations
  • Heating and cooling demand
  • Heating energy demand
  • Lightning
  • Ventilation and air-conditioning technology
  • Energy certificate
  • Analysis of alternatives
  • Norms, calculations and software

These themes were prepared as digital presentations and scripts for the lecturers. The content could be applied for all buildings (new and old, living and non-living buildings). For the first time, useful and comprehensive educational material for creating an energy certificate was available.

In Styria, the trainings started in autumn 2007.
