Typology Approach for Building Stock Energy Assessment

Project Details


TABULA aims to create a harmonised structure for European building typologies. Residential buildings are the focus, but activities extend beyond them.

Each national typology will be a set of model residential buildings with characteristic energy related properties. These will each represent a certain construction period of the country and a specific building size. Furthermore, the number of buildings and apartments which they represent, and the overall floor areas, will be identified. The development and utilisation of a webtool, serving as a data source for scenario analyses, will be the other key outcome.

The action addresses experts working on scenario analyses, as well as policy makers, at regional, national or EU level. Energy consultants can also use the typologies for initial advice.

Efforts are made to expand the typology structure to countries not involved in the project, with the webtool being open for addition of further national typologies by relevant experts.
