Request to Action

Removing barriers to low carbon retrofit by improving access to data and insight of the benefits to key market actors

Promoting the use of EPC data to prompt the adoption of energy efficiency measures in building retrofit.


Request2Action puts together efforts from 9 european countries to find solutions on how data from Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) can be use to promote home energy efficiency. This project focuses on 5 different points of action: monitoring the uptake of EPC recommendations, enhancing self-assessment advice for households, providing effective data from EPCs to different organisations and companies to promote energy savings opportunities, involving all market value actors in the retrofit process, develop national hubs to link supply & demand side stakeholders. The result is the creation of different retrofit action hubs, one-stop-shop web portals that allow bridging the gap between supply and demand, reinforcing market trust and prompting house owners to adopt the energy efficiency measures proposed in their EPCs.
