A building renovation passport in Europe? 1st EPBD19a stakeholders meeting, June 24

Morning session (10:00 – 13:00): Inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems Afternoon session (14:00 – 17:00): Building renovation passport Centre Albert Borschette, room 0.D (ground floor) - Rue Froissart 36, Brussels

The EPBD (EU 2018/844) which entered into force in July 2018, introduced several new provisions. In particular, Article 19a introduces the requirement to perform a feasibility study addressing two issues: the possible introduction of inspections of stand-alone ventilation systems and the possible introduction of an optional building renovation passport. DG ENER awarded the contract to perform the study to a consortium led by INIVE and BPIE. (

The partners are actively engaging stakeholders, collecting their input and viewpoints, and considering their feedback in relation to study results.

A first stakeholder meeting is taking place in Brussels on 24 June 2019, providing an opportunity to make your voice heard.

The meeting consists of two independent parts, each addressing one of the two study issues.

The morning session focuses on the “inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems”, sharing preliminary outcomes of the study, the relevant online survey, as well as related field analyses, to give an overview of the state of the art regarding regulations, standards and guidelines available in the EU and beyond, as well as the stock of ventilation systems and their performances. Existing approaches and approaches currently under development will be presented and stakeholders will discuss the feasibility and expected impact of potential relevant measures at EU level.

The afternoon session will focus on “building renovation passports” (BRPs) and will strive to define the concept, give an overview of stakeholders’ views on drivers and barriers to renovation as collected through the online survey and present relevant existing initiatives and schemes. The event will finally test your understanding on what a building renovation passport is and/or what you think it should be.

Location: Centre Albert Borschette, room 0.D (ground floor) – Rue Froissart 36, Brussels.
