CT6 - Calculations and lifecycle

To be updated following adoption of the recast EPBD 

This central team primarily focuses on decarbonisation, calculations and standards.

CT6 is responsible for conducting life cycle calculations for both carbon and energy and will contribute to developing frameworks and definitions, such as primary energy factors, and work on cost efficiency and cost optimality for achieving zero carbon buildings.

Their scope includes defining methods for both new and existing buildings, including applications in Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). They will address technical elements and explore cost optimisation alongside other calculation matrices, including non-energy-related factors.

Furthermore, the team will address CEN standards, particularly concerning energy performance and lifecycle calculations.

In essence, CT6 focuses on all aspects of calculation methods, encompassing rules and definitions relevant to primary energy, operational CO2 indicators, energy performance certificates, cost optimality assessment, and life cycle carbon footprint.
