Factsheet: Energy Performance Certificate Database (Denmark)


Energy Performance Certificates (EPC), and databases that contain all of the information of the EPCs, are a policy tool used throughout the European Union to address the problem of incomplete information about the energy performance of buildings in the housing and buildings market. In Denmark, an EPC database has been in existence since 1997 and is publicly available online. The breadth, quality and accessibility of the Danish EPC database allows stakeholders to extract and utilise a wealth of information to raise awareness for and ultimately contribute to energy savings. The study by adelphi and Navigant examines the transferability to the German context.
